Alex de Minaur was disappointing against Isner earlier today but there could be plenty for the Aussies to cheer about with Kyrgios, Millman and Ebden in action taking the court. Millman has his hands full against Thiem but the other two are firm favourites in their respective matches in Atlanta.
ATP Hamburg Tips
Pablo Carreno-Busta v Aljaz BedeneThis has the makings of the match of the week! The pair have met on 5 occasions with each and every match going the distance – including a 5 setter at the French Open in 2016. Bedene leads the H2H 3-2 with Carreno-Busta winning their most recent meeting at the Rome Masters earlier this year. The Spaniard comes into the match in better form but it will take him three sets to get it done. You want to be on the Overs. Best Bet: Over 22.5 games ($1.91)
Dominic Thiem v John MillmanAussie John Millman has been in career best form but he runs into the second best clay courter on the planet. Thiem leads their series 2-0 with both wins coming on American hard courts. On the red dirt, The Wolf expects Thiem to post a convincing win. Best Bet: Thiem -5 ($2.00)
ATP Atlanta Tips
Noah Rubin v Nick KyrgiosKyrgios is playing his first match since losing to Nishikori at Wimbledon while American Noah Rubin can make it back-to-back wins over Australian opponents after beating Kokkinakis in his opening round match. Rubin has come through the qualifiers here and has been dominant on serve. He won almost 75% of total points on serve against Kokkinakis and Kyrgios is not one to break serve regularly. There have been 13 breakers in Kyrgios’ last 8 matches and The Wolf is ready to launch into the Overs! Best Bet: Over 20.5 games ($1.67)
