Home I All Guides I Sports Betting Guides I Tennis I Best Value: ATP Beijing, Tokyo & WTA Beijing
In this article, we’ll take a look at the highest value players in the first round of next week’s tournaments. With the Asian swing taking place, Beijing hosts a combined ATP-WTA event. On the other side, only the men will play this week in Tokyo.
An exciting contest takes place in Beijing with Dominic Thiem and Alexander Zverev fighting for a place in the second round. These two players know each other well and are without any doubt the future of tennis. After Dominic’s disappointing loss in Chengdu’s quarter-finals, the Austrian is looking for a better performance on this ATP 500 event. In contrast, the market is overrating Zverev after his first career title in St. Petersburg. Besides this, Thiem also leads on the H2H by 3 – 0, with all those encounters taking place this year. Therefore, it’s possible to find clear value on Dominic’s price at 1.81 at Pinnacle.
In the following round, Dominic might face another talented young player – Jack Sock. Known for his outstanding top spin forehand, Sock is never an easy opponent to face. However, the American is still looking for his first career victory over Thiem after two consecutive losses. Having said that, this seems to be a great opportunity for Dominic to reach the quarter-finals in Beijing.
Known as one of the best servers in the history of the game, it’s never easy to beat Ivo Karlovic. Despite his age, Karlovic is still a very competitive player; the 37 year old Croatian is currently ranked #20 in the world. After a tremendous US Open series with two titles, Ivo is looking for another successful journey on this Asian swing.
After a disappointing loss earlier this year against Federico Delbonis in Melbourne, Karlovic is looking for revenge in Tokyo. Known as a very good clay courter, Delbonis is far from comfortable outside that surface. Therefore, Ivo’s remarkable serve and offensive game style should be too much for Federico to handle. Ladbrokes is currently offering 1.35 on Karlovic to win this match, which is a great selection for a combo bet.
In the 2nd round, Karlovic might face the former eighth best player in the world, Janko Tipsarevic. However, Janko is currently outside the top 200 and far from his best after several physical problems. Even though Tipsarevic can produce some remarkable shots, the Serbian shouldn’t present the required consistency to defeat Karlovic. With this in mind, we should see Karlovic fighting for a place in the semi-finals.
The 2011 China Open Champion, Agnieszka Radwanska, started her campaign in Beijing with a solid 6 – 2 6 – 2 victory against Qiang Wang. Known as one of the most talented players on the WTA Tour, Agnieszka is looking for her first title on this Asian swing. In the following round, Radwanska faces Ekaterina Makarova. These two players met last week in Wuhan, China, with Radwanska emerging victorious from that contest by 6 – 4 6 – 1. As we suggested on Karlovic’s match, Agnieszka’s price at 1.33 at Bet365 is also a good option for a combo bet.
An electrifying contest is expected in the third round between Radwanska and Caroline Wozniacki. These two players have featured some remarkable battles in the past with Caroline leading by 9 – 4 in H2H. However, Radwanska emerged victorious on their last encounter in Wuhan. The bookmakers should offer a very decent price on Agnieszka, close to 1.60, which should be more than enough to place a bet on the Polish player to reach the quarter-finals.
