Rublev delivered for The Wolfpack overnight and will be sticking with him against Haase. He is the defending champ in Umag and is looking the goods to make it back-to-back titles.
ATP Newport Preview
Adrian Mannarino v Marcel GranollersMannarino delivered in spades overnight and The Wolf is sticking with him. He is the superior player on grass – a surface which Granollers plays very little tennis on. We have seen the Frenchman steer opponents from side to side and his ability to take the ball early will be the difference. Best Bet: Mannarino -2.5 ($1.73)
Steve Johnson v Dudi SelaWolfy cannot believe the price on offer for Sela in this one. There is no doubt that Johnson should be the favourite but with losses to Bemelmans and Mischa Zverev on grass, he isn’t exactly in the best form of his career. Moreover, Sela is coming off wins over Karlovic and Tomic – two men with very good grass court credentials. The Wolf says to back Seal with the start and for the outright win! Best Bet: Sela +3.5 ($1.85)
ATP Umag Tips
Laslo Djere v Marco CecchinatoCecchinato is showing that his run to the French Open semi finals was no fluke. He claimed the title in Budapest earlier this year as a lucky loser and post the French Open managed multiple wins on grass. Back onto his beloved clay, he was back to his best with a come from behind win over Vesely. He played outstanding tennis on the big points and it is the reason why The Wolf is backing him to post a dominant win. Best Bet: Cecchinato WIN ($1.70)
