ATP Shanghai Day 6 where the quarterfinals will take place. We've added an underdog to our tennis picks and we advise you to add him to your betting ticket.

Kevin Anderson (12) vs Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (16)
Two big servers will fight for a place in Shanghai's semifinals, find out who should emerge victorious in this close contest.

After a poor first round loss last week in Beijing, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is already in Shanghai's quarterfinals. Despite reaching this stage of the competition, Tsonga's draw was extremely easy but he still needed to comeback twice from a set down. 

Tsonga is known for playing very well under pressure with a 59.23% career winning record in tie breaks, however this week he lost the two breakers he played and in his last match against Albert Ramos, only converted 3 of 15 break point chances.

Kevin Anderson is for the first time in top 10 after a very consistent season. The South-African has been able to perform at his best in the bigger stages and is doing that once again this week in Shanghai. 

Anderson has been serving at an outstanding level his week, he's holding 97.06% of service games and has already faced some great returns such as Fabio Fognini and Kei Nishikori. Kevin has also been very strong under pressure winning the three tie breaks he played this week.

Tsonga won the two previous matches, both by the same result 7 - 6 7 - 6. The two players are amazing servers and once again we should have at least one tie break on this match.
Anderson is playing better tennis this week, he faced stronger opponents so far when compared with the ones faced by Tsonga. Adding to this the South-African won all tie breaks he played while the French lost the two he played.

This is a great opportunity for Anderson to claim his first career victory over Tsonga and we'll add to our tennis picks Anderson's tennis odds to win this match.
