Djokovic is the main favorite and has never been defeated at Beijing. Find out if the World No. 1 should be able to claim the glory at ATP Beijing. Check our analysis & tennis picks inside.
The China Open takes place in Beijing and will be played on Hard Court
Novak Djokovic loves this Beijing tournament, the Serbian has a perfect 24 – 0 record on it with 5 titles. Djokovic is having an amazing season with 63 wins in 68 matches and he’s the main favorite to lift the trophy in Beijing.
The price on Djokovic is not very high at 1.53 on bet365 however it doesn’t seem very likely that he loses this week. The Serbian is playing unbelievable tennis and will try to keep his perfect record in order to win his 6th Beijing title.
Our advice is to take Djokovic to win the tournament and we’ll add it to our tennis picks.
Rafael Nadal is far from having a good year but in this tournament has a great opportunity to collect some important points to help him guarantee a place in London.
Nadal is the main favorite in bottom half of the draw, however he keeps very far from his best. The main problem with Rafa is the lack of depth in his shots and also the lower confidence that he has in himself. In the past Nadal was a monster mentally but currently is often to see him being broken when serving for a set or playing some poor shots at break points.
There are plenty of dangerous players in this tournament and despite the interesting price of Nadal at 7.50 on bet365 we just can’t trust on him at the moment.
Player to keep an eye on
Milos Raonic seems recovered physically and returned to competition with a title in St. Petersburg. The Canadian’s baseline movement was much better and also his first serve % improved with 63% first serve in and 97.6% service hold.
Milos has a good opportunity here to reach semifinals, the biggest challenge he’ll have is David Ferrer however the Spaniard might struggle to adjust to game conditions because he’s playing Kuala Lumpur final. Ferrer leads h2h 4 – 0 but the last match was already in 2012 and Raonic is a much better player today while Ferrer’s level has decreased.
The Canadian's tennis odds are too high at 17.00 and should be a good trading opportunity until semifinals where he should lose against Novak Djokovic.
