Sock is the last obstacle in Berdych quest for third Stockholm title. Find out our top tennis pick for ATP Stockholm final this Sunday and why should you add it to your betting list.

Tomas Berdych (1) vs Jack Sock (7)
Tomas Berdych extended his winning streak in Stockholm to 11 matches after Marcos Baghdatis retirement on semifinals. The courts in Stockholm are extremely fast and Berdych powerful groundstrokes are quite effective on them.

After losing the first three finals of the year, Tomas returned to titles few weeks ago in Shenzhen. The Czech has been playing very solid tennis this week after a disappointing heavy loss in Shanghai against Andy Murray.

After being broken twice in the first match against Alexander Zverev, Berdych raised the level on serve, not being broken a single time in the following matches against Grigor Dimitrov and Baghdatis.

It has been an outstanding run for Jack Sock this week; the American reaches his second career final after a massive performance on semifinals. Despite having a very tough draw, Jack managed to overcome three former top 10 players: Fernando Verdasco, Gilles Simon and Richard Gasquet.

As we said in our semifinals preview, Sock has been extremely strong under pressure. This week the American won 77.4% of points when facing break point and converted 50.0% of break point chances.

They played recently in Shanghai, where Berdych emerged victorious by 7 – 6 4 – 6 6 – 4. Sock had many opportunities on that match but was far from strong on pressure points, finishing the match with 3 of 14 break points converted.

The American should be able to put a good fight on this match, Sock’s forehand has been impressive and will open the court very well forcing Berdych to move. Both have been serving at great level and there should be at least one tiebreak on this match.

We’ll add to our tennis picks the value on Over tennis odds, expecting a very close match between two great servers.
