Back to the Big Leagues
Shanghai is the first tournament since the US Open in which all the big stars are fighting for a huge prize. Players will be surging to compete in the Emirates ATP Race to London in order to qualify. This is why this tournament is wildly unpredictable and anyone can win it.
The Serb has played composed, world class tennis in Beijing and earning his spot in the final has been a walk in the park. He has made some top class players like Murray look way out of their depth and his form in China has been electric. The No.1 seed makes the trip to Shanghai knowing he is on a 10 match unbeaten streak in this Open and we don’t expect him to break his streak.
Perhaps tennis’ greatest ever player is back in action after a 3 week break. He may be sluggish compared to many of the other competitors who were in action and we think this may be the difference. The fight is definitely still there but at the very top the margins are just so small that you simply cant afford to be 5% below your best or the number 12 seed beats you.
Maybe next week Roger.
You may be thinking, what is David Ferrer doing here? Where’s Nadal, Nishikori, Cilic, e.t.c.? Well here at The Betting Agency we believe he will succeed and shock everyone here in Shanghai. He is primed to do well here and reach the final spot. At ridiculously generous odds you would be mad to not stick a bet on him. His success might not be a certainty but it is definitely worth the risk. He has a good record here in Shanghai making the final in 2011 and we expect him to do it again.
