European Open Tennis Update – Wednesday, October 20 | ATP Betting
Jenson Brooksby vs Botic Van De Zandschulp
- When: Wednesday, October 20 – 16:00 CEST
Jenson Brooksby (-217) caused a huge upset when he won against the fifth-seeded Reilly Opelka in the first round. Although Brooksby didn’t face a single break, he broke Opelka once in each set to win the match 6-4, 6-4.
What’s more, Brooksby made just six unforced errors in the match and has been showing exceptional form throughout the qualifiers. With his win on Tuesday, Brooksby is 13-6 and is enjoying a great season.
So far in 2021, Brooksby reached the finals in Newport and a semi-final in Washington. He has also made it to the Round of 16 at the 2021 U.S. Open.
Botic Van De Zandschulp (+161) struggled a bit against Alexei Popyrin in the tournament’s first match, and while he ended up winning, Van De Zandschulp needed three sets to get the job done (6-4, 3-6, 6-0).
He will need to build on his solid start to the tournament and hope he can show the same fight on Thursday, but that might be easier said than done.
With the form Brooksby has been showing, he should seal the deal in straight sets.
Jannik Sinner vs Lorenzo Musetti
- When: Wednesday, October 20 – 18:30 CEST
On Tuesday, Lorenzo Musetti (+409) won against his compatriot, Gianluca Mager, with 7-6, 7-6 to advance into the next round of the 2021 European Open. Unfortunately, his road to the title will likely end here, as he takes on the current world no.13, Jannik Sinner (-714).
There is always room for upsets, but it’s very easy to see why Sinner is heavily favored if you compare Musetti and Sinner. The 20-year-old rising tennis star is fresh off a Round of 16 exit at Indian Wells, which isn’t great; however, he has been phenomenal throughout the entire season.
Looking back, Sinner won the 2021 Sofia Open in October, made it to the Round of 16 at the 2021 U.S. Open, made it to the finals of the 2021 Washington Open, and has reached the fourth round in the 2021 French Open.
Admittedly, Sinner hasn’t won any big tournaments, but he has consistently delivered and even beaten some of the world’s best players. Musetti is a good player, and we expect him to put up a fight, but beating Sinner should be out of his reach.
Alejandro Davidovich Fokina vs Cristian Garin
- When: Wednesday, October 20 – 20:00 CEST
Even though Cristian Garin (+155) is the higher-seeded player, Alejandro Davidovich Fokina (-208) is favored to win this match, and that’s fair. The Spaniard is in excellent form, and while both like to play on clay, Davidovich Fokina has shown a lot more lately and inspires much more confidence.
You could argue that Davidovich Fokina hadn’t achieved a lot since his win at the Chile Open last year, and that’s true. His results have been very mixed since then; however, he did reach R3 at the Olympics.
What’s more, he has been very impressive in his opening European Open match against Jordan Thompson (6-3, 6-3). And if his performance against the Australian is any indication, Davidovich Fokina should be able to win with ease.
