ATP Basel / Vienna: Quarter Finals

atp tour tips and preview

Federer and Gasquet delivered in spades in the second round and The Wolf says we will continue to back them throughout the weekend.

ATP Basel Feature Preview

Roberto Bautista-Agut v Juan Martin Del Potro
Those with short term memory loss may have forgotten their meetings earlier this year at the US Open – The Wolf hasn’t. Bautista-Agut had no answer for the Del Potro power game and he was unable to make any inroads into the Argentine’s serve. Del Potro won more than 60% of points behind his second serve on that occasion and has matched that number this week. He has won 10 of his last 11 matches with Federer the only man to beat him in that stretch. Look for Del Potro to dominate behind his big first serve.
Best Bet: Sets Del Potro 2-0 ($2.20)



Roger Federer v Adrian Mannarino
This is the second consecutive match in which Federer has a dominant record against his opponent. He is 4-0 lifetime against Mannarino and has won all 10 sets that they have contested. Mannarino has failed to win more than two games in more than half of the sets contested and despite being in good form The Wolf says he does not have the game to cause Federer any troubles.
Best Bet: TBA

ATP Vienna Feature Preview

Lucas Pouille v Richard Gasquet
The Wolf couldn’t believe that Gasquet was installed as the outsider against Thiem and the Frenchman got the job done for The Wolfpack with a come from behind win. In a sign of how well he is playing he managed to win 41% of return points and was constantly able to put pressure on the Thiem serve. We should see much of the same against Pouille who serve was broken 3 times by Garcia-Lopez. Gasquet will be money for us yet again. 
Best Bet: TBA



Alexander Zverev v Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
They have met twice over the last year and both matches were absolute thrillers. Both went the distance with the opening set being settled in a breaker each time. Zverev may have had the better season of the two but it is Tsonga who is on fire having won 6 straight matches and storming to the title in Antwerp a week ago. They will again go the distance according to Wolfy and he says those wanting to back a winner should be on Tsonga.
Best Bet: Over 23.5 games ($1.91)
