The underdogs were overwhelmed in Melbourne with Novak Djokovic winning in emphatic style. Players including Murray and Wawrinka who the Serb demolished now head to Rotterdam in order to get their season back on track and add to their bulging pockets of money. Having said that most will have some more scars from the whipping they got from the Worlds number one and this crop must now be wondering will they ever beat the Serb again. However, he isn’t here so lets see how this one pans out and see if we can add yet another winner to our 2015 and make it three from three. In the biggest tournament in Europe so far this year the stakes will be high and it could be a belter. We expect these two to deliver the goods for us again this week.
Andy, Andy, Andy. A break up in the third set and then you lose 12 games out of the last 13 against Novak, what a capitulation. This will be crushing to his self-confidence. But here at The Betting Agency we expect him to come roaring back and I would rate him as favourite on our book, Novak aside he looked good in Melbourne. He played some very good tennis to reach the major final but he has to convert his frustration and disappointment into good, aggressive tennis and that’s what we expect him to do this week.
The Swiss’ progress was a bit under the radar due to Andy’s great run but after winning it last year, he managed another major semi-final. He may be disappointed but this shows he’s not just a one-trick-pony but a really talented player.
A lack of experience here in Rotterdam could be a worry but in the form he showed in Melbourne he can definitely make the final for sure. Stan the man is on the way back and at his best he is not far off the best. He is an exciting, emotional player and now carries the baton for Switzerland and for us this week.
