Join our expert capper for his ATP Atlanta tournament analysis. Find out who the main contenders are, as well as the player to keep an eye on this hard-court event.
The BB&T Atlanta Open takes place in Atlanta with Hard Court as the chosen surface for this ATP 250 event.
Playing in Atlanta brings great memories to John Isner. In addition to his phenomenal 23 – 4 career record on this event, the 6’10’’ American is a three-time champion at the BB&T Atlanta Open. Adding to this, Isner couldn’t have asked for a better result before this event after winning the title in Newport last week. Known as one of the best servers in the game, the 32-year-old didn’t face a single break point on his successful campaign at the Dell Technologies Hall of Fame Open.
Taking a look now at John’s draw in Atlanta, the world no.20 makes his debut this Wednesday against Vasek Pospisil. Even though Pospisil is never an easy opponent on this surface, Isner should be too strong for the Canadian. Therefore, our advice is for you to place a bet on John’s -1.5 Set Handicap at +124 at Pinnacle. Besides Pospisil, the three-time champion may also face Donald Young and Gilles Muller in the following rounds. Despite the tough draw ahead of him, it’s impossible to go against Isner on this event. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to take advantage of John's tennis betting odds to win his 4th career title in Atlanta at +275 at Bet365.
At the age of 24, Jack Sock is going through the best moment in her career. Besides winning two titles already in 2017, Sock also secured his career high ranking earlier this season as the world no.14. Nevertheless, the last weeks haven’t been easy for Jack with the 24-year-old American winning only 42.86% of the matches since the start of the European clay-court season.
Looking now Sock’s draw on this event, the no.1 seed won’t have an easy task on the opening round match against Dudi Sela. Adding to this, Kyle Edmund and Ryan Harrison are other of the main threats on Jack’s half of the draw. Even though we consider Sock the main favorite to reach the final on the top half of the draw, it’s hard to trust on the world no.19 due to his lack of success in recent weeks. Having said that, our recommendation is for you to avoid placing any bet on Sock’s outright at +350 at BetVictor.
Player to Keep an Eye
Jared Donaldson continues his sensational run in 2017. Despite his young age, Donaldson is already in the top 60. Besides reaching the 4th round at the Miami Open, the 20-year-old American staged an impressive campaign in Wimbledon, losing only to Dominic Thiem in the 3rd round. Adding to this, Donaldson didn’t experience any problems on his debut in Atlanta with an outstanding 6 – 3 6 – 1 victory over Ernesto Escobedo.
Jared returns to action this Thursday to play against the wildcard – Christopher Eubanks. Despite Eubanks’ surprising win against Taylor Fritz in the previous round, Donaldson should be too good for his fellow countryman. For that reason, our suggestion is for you to add Jared’s -1.5 Set Handicap at -141 at Pinnacle to your betting picks as the best betting approach for this contest.
