The Wolf put some pennies in our pocket overnight with Thiem, Ebden and Baghdatis all grabbing the cash. He has plenty more heading into the weekend.
ATP Hamburg Tips
Dominic Thiem v Nicolas JarryJarry was given a pass into the quarters while Thiem’s win over Millman was nothing more than a training run. The Wolf will be shocked if anyone beats Thiem this week and that includes the big serving Jarry. Jarry likes to play on the front foot, but when things go wrong for him he misses by large margins. Thiem will give him nothing and it will result in an abundance of errors from the Jarry racquet. Best Bet: Thiem -5.5 ($2.20)
Pablo Carreno-Busta v Nicoloz BasilashviliBasilashvili has played some fantastic tennis this week. He has come through the qualifiers and has registered wins over Kohlschreiber and Cuevas in the main draw. He has done it tough, and The Wolf says his luck will run out against Carreno-Busta. The Spaniard was in cruise control against Bedene and this is a surface that he rarely loses to anyone ranked outside the top 20. Best Bet: Carreno-Busta -3.5 ($1.73)
ATP Atlanta Tips
John Isner v Mischa ZverevAussie Alex de Minaur struggled to hold serve against Isner but The Wolf is adamant that Zverev will not have the same issue. He has won 3 straight against the American and Isner has broken his serve only once in the last 11 sets they have contested. Half the sets they have played have gone to a breaker and that makes the Overs a special! Best Bet: Over 23.5 games ($1.85)
