Roger Federer

Tennis Betting TipA former Gerry Webber Open, now known as Noventi Open, will take place at Gerry Webber Stadium in Halle, Germany, from June 17 to June 23, 2019. Well-known for its grass surface, Halle is a part of the ATP 500 series and will see three top 10 players this season including the nine-time champion Roger Federer. The other two guys are Alexander Zverev and Karen Khachanov, while the defending champion Borna Coric, who defeated Federer in the championship match last year, is coming as the World No. 14.

Who Are the Main Contenders?

The World No. 3 Roger Federer will look for his 10th title in Halle, and the eight-time Wimbledon champion is coming off a tough semifinal loss to Rafael Nadal in three sets at Roland Garros. Federer has a 27-4 record this year, winning two titles in Miami and Dubai on a hard court. Roger has 18 grass court titles, while he won 63 of his 70 matches in Halle and 176 of his 202 matches on grass in a career.

Federer will start his journey with the first-round clash against the Australian John Millman who outlasted Roger in four sets at the 2018 US Open. It was Millman’s first-ever victory over the top 10 player in 14 duels. If he beats Millman, Roger will face off against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga or Benoit Paire in the second round.

The potential rival in the quarterfinal is the seventh-seeded Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut who lost all his eight encounters against Federer. In the semis, we could see a rematch of the last year’s final between Federer and Borna Coric. Considering his form in 2019, Federer is capable of reaching his 13th final in Halle, and you can take him at 10/11 with BetVictor to win the title.

The defending champ Borna Coric entered Sunday’s semifinal in ‘s-Hertogenbosch with seven wins over his last eight matches on grass, and he’s listed as 22/1 underdog at BetVictor to retain the title in Halle. Coric won 19 of his 29 matches in 2019 and his first rival is Jaume Munar whom Coric already defeated this season in Monte Carlo on clay. The potential opponent in the second round is the World No. 54 Hubert Hurkacz, while Coric could meet the fifth-seeded Gael Monfils in the quarterfinal.

The World No. 5 and the second seed Alexander Zverev is coming to Halle as a 5/1 favourite to win the title, according to 888Sport. Zverev is having a turbulent season, losing 12 of his 35 matches and winning just one trophy in Geneva on clay. He’s coming off a surprising first-round loss to Dustin Brown in Stuttgart this week. Zverev has a 22-12 record on grass in his career, and he’s a two-time runner-up in Halle.

Zverev got a nice draw and will open against Robin Haase who lost five of his last seven matches. Philipp Kohlschreiber could be his rival in the second round, while David Goffin lurks in the quarterfinal, but Zverev should get the job done against all these players.

The third-seeded Karen Khachanov is the World No. 9 at the moment, and you can pick him at 11/1 with BetVictor to win the 2019 Noventi Open. This week in Stuttgart, Khachanov lost to Matteo Berrettini in the first round, while Karen won just three of his last eight matches on grass. Khachanov should pass Damir Dzumhur in the first round, but Jan-Lennard Struff could be a tricky rival in the second round.

Potential Upsets

The World No. 30 Matteo Berrettini is one to watch at Noventi Open this season. The Italian right-hander made it to the championship game in Stuttgart where he meets Felix Auger-Aliassime. Prior to Sunday’s match, Berrettini had an 8-4 record on grass.

Matteo possesses a great serve that gives him an advantage on fast courts, while he also has a strong forehand. His first-round opponent is the sixth-seeded Nikoloz Basilashvili who lost 14 of his last 20 matches on grass, so Berrettini has an excellent opportunity to reach the second round where the potential rival is of the qualifiers.

The eventual duel with Karen Khachanov is the quarterfinal is the familiar ground for Matteo who defeated the Russian in two sets in Stuttgart. Berrettini could be little tired after five matches this week, but the odds are attractive at 25/1 with 888Sport.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is also at 25/1 with BetVictor, but the Frenchman is far away from his best form. Also, Tsonga is in Federer’s half of a draw, as well as another Frenchman Richard Gasquet who’s set at 28/1 with BetVictor to win the 2019 Noventi Open. Jan-Lennard Struff is a long shot at 45/1 with BetVictor even though the German has been playing well lately, winning nine of his last 14 matches.

Who’s the Best Pick?

When you have Roger Federer in the tournament, it is really hard to bet on anybody else. Although he’s a 37-year old, Federer is arguably the best grass court player ever. He still has a terrific serve, winning 79% of 1st serve points and 92% of his service games. Also, Federer won 93% of his service games on grass.

Considering all these ridiculous numbers, I cannot tell you bet against Roger. However, you can still take someone from the bottom half of a draw and try to win some greater wages. Alexander Zverev is the first option, for sure, considering his rivals on the way to the final. Likewise, Zverev won three of his six encounters with Federer including a semifinal victory in Halle in 2016. If you want to take a higher risk, go with Matteo Berrettini.
