Nikoloz Basilashvili vs Oscar Otte

On one side is Georgia’s Basilashvili, who has this habit of putting together a strong string of results and then falling apart in a heap at other times. On the other side is local hero Oscar Otte, who has achieved the kind of results he would have wished for earlier in his career.

As a semi-finalist in Stuttgart last week, Otte recorded a straight win over Miomir Kecmanovic, although he went in at 1/1 to win it. It had another tie-breaker, his seventh in eight sets!

Basilashvili upped the ante by beating Andrey Rublev, but things could be a little different against Otte’s powerful serve. It’s expected to be a brutal match, again featuring at least one tie-break and probably three sets. Support Otte to get a win here.

Stan Wawrinka vs. Tommy Paul

Wawrinka has been sidelined on and off due to his injury woes and while he may be past his prime, he can still apply the pressure a top-50 player could. This was evident in his first-round win over Frances Tiafoe, where he fought back multiple times before winning in three tie-breakers.

He now faces another American in Tommy Paul, one who doesn’t get too nervous too easily and one who put Denis Shapovalov (23/50 odds on the favorite to win the opener) out of contention.

We think this could become some kind of slugfest where neither player is willing to give an inch and the match goes into a third set. Expect a threesome.

Yelena Ostapenko vs Dayana Yastremska

Expect this to be a lively first encounter, bridging the gap between Ostapenko and Yastremska, two players known for fighting tooth and nail, especially when a trigger gets them their competitive juices.

Ostapenko starts as a favorite with 3/5, but one cannot rule out the possibility of an upset here. However, to do that, Yastremska might need to stick with the fight even if she falls behind, and that could happen in our opinion.

Expect a three-setter or a hard-fought straight-set win that could go either way.
