Join us and find out our top betting selection for the Shanghai Masters Rolex Final. We'll provide a detailed analysis, explaining why you should grab this valuable tennis pick.

Roberto Bautista Agut (15) vs. Andy Murray (2)

After an extraordinary triumph over Novak Djokovic, Roberto Bautista Agut secured not only his first Masters 1000 Final but also his career high ranking as world no.13. The fast game conditions in Shanghai clearly suit Bautista Agut’s game style with the Spaniard playing at an outstanding pace. Looking now to Roberto’s numbers against Djokovic, the highlight clearly goes to his success on pressure points. While Bautista Agut took advantage of 4 out of 5 break points, the world no.1 only converted 22.22% of his break point chances throughout the match.

As we predicted in our Shanghai Rolex Masters semifinals analysis, Gilles Simon was far from an easy match-up to Andy Murray. After reaching the semifinals without dropping his service game, Murray suffered four breaks of serve against Simon. However, the British emerged victorious at the end by 6 – 4 6 – 3 and continued his quest for the no.1 spot on the ATP World Tour ranking. Known for his remarkable return to serve, Andy ended the match with 53.03% of the points won on Simon’s serve.

This will be the third career meeting between these two players with Murray leading on the h2h by 2 – 0.

After two successful bets on the underdogs’ spread in the semifinals, we’ll go once again with the dark horse on the decisive match. Bautista Agut is playing at a superb level and with nothing to lose on this match he can be even more dangerous. The pressure is all on Andy’s side and for that reason, our suggestion is for you to take advantage of Roberto’s betting odds by adding his spread to your betting picks.
