TODAY'S BEST BET | OCTOBER 29
We’re heading to the Erste Bank Open at ATP Vienna for today’s best bet as Casper Ruud and Jannik Sinner square off in a big quarter-final showdown.
Both players are in contention to qualify for the prestigious eight-man field at the end-of-season ATP Finals in Turin, with Ruud currently in seventh place, while Sinner can move into eighth if he can claim the win in this clash.
We are going to be backing Sinner to come out on top and to prevail in straight sets.
The Italian has been on a major roll as of late, winning his last 10 consecutive indoor hardcourt matches, picking up ATP titles in Sofia and Antwerp in the process.
Furthermore, Sinner has won all 10 of those matches in straight sets. Going even further back, 16 of Sinner’s last 17 victories at ATP level have come in straight sets.
Bottom line is that if Sinner wins the opening set, he will most likely win the second and close out the match.
Ruud has improved his game considerably on hardcourt and it’s taken the very best players in the world to beat him recently, but Sinner is now considered one of those players.
Ruud’s last eight ATP defeats dating back to January have all been in straight sets, so if he is going to lose, he usually does so without winning a set.
Throw in the fact that these conditions suit Sinner’s powerful game perfectly and all signs point to another straight sets win for the rising Italian in Vienna.
- Sinner has won his last 10 indoor hardcourt matches
