Alex di Minaur v Roberto Bautista-Agut Predictions & Preview
Alex de Minaur and Roberto Bautista Agut meet for the first time in their careers in the semi-finals of the Zhuhai Open.
Both players are having the best year of their careers, with the young Aussie de Minaur looking to make at mark at age 20 already, where as Agut has been on the circuit for a while, but pushing harder than ever now, and maybe a ‘late bloomer’.
Agut started the year well, winning the ATP 250 at Doha, defeating Novak Djokovic twice earlier this year, and followed it with a run to the Wimbledon semi-finals. He is currently ranked number 10 in the world and is in the reckoning for the year end ATP Tour Finals in London. The gritty Spaniard has looked good this week, with convincing victories and will fancy his chances at a title run here.
De Minaur, at age 20, has won two ATP titles this year, in Sydney and Atlanta, and had a good run at the US Open. This week he has looked sharp again, and had crucial wins against Andy Murray and Borna Coric, looking every bit one of the players to watch out for in the long run.
An exciting match between two gritty players, that can go either way. Expect the Spaniard to edge through in a tight three-setter.
Tip: Three sets in the match: 8/5 with 888Sport
Adrian Mannarino v Albert Ramos-Vinolas Preview
This is the sixth meeting between two players who have been on the tour for a while, with the Spaniard leading the head-to-head 3-2. They met earlier this year, on the Geneva clay with Ramos-Vinalos prevailing.
Frenchman Adrian Mannarino has had a modest year, with the highlight being him winning on the Rosmalen grass at the ATP 250. His journey to the final four was aided by top seed Stefanos Tsitsipas withdrawing with illness at the start of the third set in their encounter.
Ramos-Vinalos has been a name that has done well on the clay courts, but this season has not been as positive as earlier ones for me. Despite it not being his favorite surface, he has done very well to defeat young guns Yoshihito Nishioka and Miomir Kecmanovic, and more so a straight set win in the quarter-finals against Gael Monfils.
A tight match on the cards, where Mannarino prevails in three sets.
Tip: Mannarino to win in three sets: 15/4 with 888Sport
