Join us for our daily coverage of the ATP Masters 1000 Montreal tournament. Find out our top tennis pick for the final and why you should place this valuable play.


Alexander Zverev (4) vs. Roger Federer (2)

The world no.8 – Alexander Zverev – remains unbeaten in the 2017 US Open Series. Despite young age, Zverev is already one of the greatest competitors in the game. Adding to this, the 20-year-old is well-known for playing his best tennis on the big stages. Besides winning his first ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title earlier this year in Rome, Zverev holds a phenomenal 19 – 4 record in 2017 on these tournaments. Looking now at Alexander’s campaign in Montreal, the German proved too strong for Denis Shapovalov with a 6 – 4 7 – 5 win over the Canadian teenager in the semifinals.

Roger Federer continues his quest for an historical title in Montreal. After winning two titles in Toronto in 2004 and 2006, the 36-year-old Swiss is now just one win away from an unprecedented title in Montreal. Despite his incredible run in 2017, Federer hasn’t been as dominant on this event as he was during the first seven months of the season. Nevertheless, the 19-time Grand Slam champion keeps winning and is already in his sixth final of the season.

This will be the 4th official meeting between these two players with Federer leading on the h2h by 2 – 1.

Despite Roger’s brilliant results in recent months, it’s impossible to find any value on his current tennis betting odds. On the other hand, Zverev is going through a great moment in his career and it won’t be easy for anyone to beat him. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to add the German’s set handicap to your betting picks as the most valuable play for this encounter.
