We've selected a Spanish player as the highest value tennis pick on ATP Paris quarterfinals. Find out who he is and what is the best bet on that match.

David Ferrer (8) vs. John Isner (13)
As we predicted in our tournament analysis, Roger Federer wasn’t fully motivated for this event and John Isner took advantage of that. The American surprised the world no. 2 by 7 – 6 3 – 6 7 – 6.

This is John’s second career appearance on ATP Paris quarterfinals, after reaching semifinals in 2011. Isner is always an extremely dangerous player due to his massive serve and this week he’s firing an average of 1.78 aces per service game. It has been a very demanding season for Isner and won’t be easy for him to recover after such a demanding match.

After an easy first match against Alexandr Dolgopolov, David Ferrer had to work very hard in order to overcome Grigor Dimitrov. The Spaniard lost the first set and was break down on third set, but showed all his determination and mental strength.

Ferrer reaches Paris quarterfinals for the fifth straight year, after winning the title in 2011 and losing 2012 final. The courts in Paris aren’t very fast and David’s consistence baseline game is quite effective on this surface.

This will be the 7th meeting between this two players with Ferrer leading 5 – 1, but was Isner who emerged victorious in their previous match on this event in 2011.

Both players had very demanding matches on previous round but Ferrer should be the one in better shape for this match. Isner showed some signs of tiredness in previous weeks and will have to face one of the toughest competitors on tour.

Ferrer is a terrific returner and should be able to create problems on Isner serve. The American will struggle against David’s baseline intensity and the Spaniard should use his groundstrokes to explore John’s slower baseline movement.

For this contest, we’ll add Ferrer spread tennis odds to our tennis picks.
