After the US Open Series tennis returns to Europe with the Indoor Hard Court tournaments taking place. Find out who are the main favorites and players to keep an eye on in ATP Metz.

 

ATP Metz
The Moselle Open takes place in Metz and will be played in Indoor Hard

 

Main Contenders
Stan Wawrinka will return to ATP after playing for Switzerland in Davis Cup this weekend where he was far from impressive but was enough to help his country.

Stan is the 1st seed and main favorite for this event but he has showed lack of motivation on this lower events in last months. After starting the year with a title in ATP 250 Chennai, the Suisse played other three 250 events with a 3 – 3 record. Despite being the favorite for the title there is clearly no value on Wawrinka at 3.25 on Bet365 due to his poor performances on this level of tournaments.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga had a tough start of 2015 with physical problems but has been able to raise the level reaching recently US Open quarterfinals.

Tsonga loves to play in home soil and in this Indoor tournaments he becomes even more dangerous where his powerful serve, forehand and offensive game are extremely effective. Jo has already won twice this Metz tournament and was runner up once. Tsonga will for sure bring his best game to this event like he always does and is always a good bet on this tournament at 3.75 at Bet365.

Gilles Simon is the highest seed in bottom half of draw and with Wawrinka and Tsonga fighting in the top half he has a great opportunity to reach the final.

Simon also loves to play in this Indoor French tournaments and this season already won a title in Marseille. Gilles has a very solid baseline game and his great counter puncher skills are quite useful on this surface. Simon won this tournament in his last two appearances and with his draw has clear chances to reach the final so we suggest taking his tennis odds at 6.50 on Bet365.

 

Player to Keep an Eye On
Gilles Muller loves the fast Indoor conditions where his slice serve is very effective and the conditions suit his serve & volley style.

Muller has good draw to reach at least quarterfinals facing Aljaz Bedene in first round and the winner of the match between Fernando Verdasco and Alexander Zverev in second round, but then it will be a very tough match against Simon. Despite being a difficult contest against Simon, Muller with his big serve can always do damage however our suggestion is to add him at 29.00 on Bet365 to our tennis picks for a trade when he reaches quarterfinals.
