ATP Vienna
The Erste Bank Open takes place in Vienna and will be played in Indoor Hard Court

 

Main Contenders
After an early loss in Shanghai against Bernard Tomic, David Ferrer will be looking for another good run in Vienna. David was runner up in 2014 but this is a 500 tournament this year which means that the draw is much more competitive. Ferrer always enjoyed this last weeks of the season on Indoor and already started the good results on this surface at Kuala Lumpur, where he won the title.

Ferrer has a very good draw this week to reach semifinals where he might face Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. The French is always a dangerous player on this surface, however he played Shanghai’s final and might not have enough time to recover and adjust to the different game conditions.

David has very good chances to reach the final where he should be favorite against any opponent from bottom half of the draw, so we’ll add him to our tennis picks at 5.00 on bet365.

Kevin Anderson kept the good results in Shanghai where he reached quarterfinals after a massive win over Kei Nishikori. Despite being in his best career ranking and playing very good tennis, the South-African keeps showing some mental weakness. Anderson was leading 6 – 3 on tie break against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in Shanghai’s quarterfinals, however wasn’t able to close the set, losing 5 straight points.

Kevin is the highest ranked player in bottom half of the draw, but there are many dangerous players on his side such as Ivo Karlovic, Dominic Thiem, John Isner or Alexaxndr Dolgopolov. With so many tough opponents that he might face, there is no real value on his tennis odds at 5.50 on bet365.

 

Player to keep an eye on
After a disappointing first round exit last year, Dominic Thiem will be looking for a better run this season. Thiem is the home favorite and has been playing outstanding tennis in 2015.

It’s far from an easy draw for Dominic with several big servers on his side such as Karlovic, Isner or Anderson. The Austrian lost the recent matches against some of those big servers but playing at home might change things for him.

There is clear value on Thiem’s tennis odds and we can’t pass his high odds of 15.00 on bet365.
