ATP 2022 Swiss Open Betting Analysis, Odds Favorites & Predictions

The EFG Swiss Open Gstaad is one of two ATP tournaments this week with the other being the Hamburg European Open. While the former is only an ATP 250 level event, it has some big names in attendance, including Matteo Berrettini and 2022 French Open finalist Casper Ruud.

The tournament, which was first held in 1915, is one of the oldest on the ATP Tour and is situated in one of the most scenic backdrops possible. Matches are played in the tree-covered mountainous region in Southwestern Switzerland near the border of France. With all that in mind, let’s take a closer look at the upcoming tournament along with the ATP Betting Odds.

Tennis Betting Preview for the 2022 Swiss Open Tournament

Outright Odds

  • Matteo Berrettini +187
  • Casper Ruud +220
  • Roberto Bautista Agut +1000
  • Dominic Thiem +1200
  • Albert Ramos Vinolas +1200
  • Lorenzo Sonego +1600
  • Christian Garin +1800
  • Jaume Munar +2500
  • Thiago Monteiro +2800
  • Pedro Martinez +3300

The Favorites – Berrettini (+187), Ruud (+220), Bautista Agut (+1000)

Berrettini should be the most motivated player in the tournament as he was unable to compete at Wimbledon due to a positive COVID-19 result just before it started. The 26-year-old Italian is the world No. 15 and has two titles this season. He receives a bye through the first round as the top seed in the tournament.

Ruud, meanwhile, is looking to get back on track following a tough grass court season. While he looked every bit a top-ranked player on clay at the French Open, he lost in the second round at Wimbledon and is now only 4-8 on grass in his career. In contrast, he has 191-94 record on clay.

Bautista Agut is another solid clay court player who should be in contention this week. He also doesn’t play until Wednesday as he awaits his second round opponent. The world No. 19 is 23-10 this season.

Best Value Pick – Garin (+1800)

Christian Garin, a 26-year-old Chilean, is coming off of an impressive performance at Wimbledon, where he reached the quarter-finals before losing to eventual finalist Nick Kyrgios. Garin’s Round of 16 victory of Alex de Minaur was particularly impressive. He came back from two sets down to win in a fifth set tiebreaker.

Despite his performance at Wimbledon, Garin is still ranked No. 70 in the world as no points were awarded at the tournament. He has five career titles and all have come on clay, so the fact he’s seventh in betting favorites is a little surprising.

Garin won in his home country at the Chile Dove Men+Care Open earlier this year in February and won two titles in each of the past two years.

Marquee Matchup – Hugo Gaston (+175) vs Dominic Thiem (-225)

Among the matchups in the first two days, none is likely to be more competitive or intriguing than Hugo Gaston vs. Dominic Thiem. Both players are capable of winning the tournament (Gaston lost to Ruud in the finals of last year’s tournament and Thiem won the event in 2015) and have something to prove.

Although they’re both veterans, Thiem and Gaston have only played once on the ATP Tour. Thiem won that matchup 6-4, 6-4, 5-7, 3-6, 6-3 in a competitive five-set battle in the Round of 16 at the 2020 French Open. Expect this one to go three sets with Gaston potentially picking up the upset.
