Queen’s Club : Review of Day One and a Look Forward

Everyone has a sponsor it seems as this is now called the Aegon Championships.  In truth, the old guard will refer to it as Queen’s Club.  One of the few tune ups for the next slam event, this has seen a surge in popularity this year.  So much so that it has jumped from ATP 1000 to ATP 500 designation.  So come find out some of the head scratching results and a look forward to an intriguing matchup on Tuesday.

Leyton’s Last Ride

A four time champion here had Kevin Anderson on the ropes.  With the match on his strings, the Aussie faltered and opened the door.  The big boomer found his tempo and blew Hewitt of the court the rest of the way.  While not very impressive for Anderson, it was enjoyable seeing the 34 year old give it another go.  Among the other three set oddities in the opening round is the defending champion Grigor Dimitrov.  He has struggled this year and let lowly ranked American Sam Querrey get the first set off of him.  It was a set apiece when play was suspended for the day.

Crystal Ball

If Grigor suvrives he has a potential matchup with Andy Murray in the quarters.  Stan could get Nadal in another round of eight match but he has to prevail in a tight first round matchup.  He gets the young Krygios from Australia.  His game is well suited for this surface.  So much so that WaWa is only a favorite in the neighborhood of -165 or so.  A very tight opening round for such a high rated seed to have to go through.

Our Apex Free Pick for Tuesday centers on the Stan Wawarinka and Nick Krygios match.  With the book makers having it close, the total comes into focus.  With a twenty three to contemplate, we look at the over for this one.  Good fortune and we will see you later on here at Apex Tennis Betting.
