All of the panic was set aside as two of the Big Four collected titles last weekend. Federer did his thing in Halle while Andy Murray was set to take the court against Kevin Anderson. Surface specialists are supposed to make inroads this season but Kevin went away meekly 6-3 and 6-4. How does this transpire went a less star studded field takes place at the ATP Nottingham tour stop this week?
Follow the Names
Used to be called Eastbourne, Nottingham is back on the tour for the first time since 2008. 48 players in the main draw with seven of the top thirty in play. With David Ferrer as your top seed, one can expect wide open wagering as grass is not his strong suit. Whom comes in with good form is our friend last week, Gilles Simon. He got us some tasty profit before falling to Kevin Anderson in three sets as Queensclub.
Senior Citizen Brigade?!
Ferrer is doing well this season for being 33 years old. He is making hay while his star still shines on the ATP. However, all of his action and success (3 titles) have come on clay or the hard court. He has the will but not the tools to win this one despite limited opposition. The defending champ, Lopez, is also over thirty years old. He went on quite a run last year going 12-1 on grass before Wimbledon. This year Isner out served him in an all tie breaker loss last week.
Two teenage up and comers are here that have just got into the top 100. Out of them, Alexander Zverev holds the most promise. Look for Simon to run well for a second straight week. Selectively wagering on Simon and Zerev at Americas Bookie will get us the profit here at Nottingham. Good fortune and we will see you later in the week at Apex Tennis Betting.
