Conditions are expected to be quick in Auckland
The Auckland Open has seen over the last few years both the service points won percentage and the aces per game to be very high. This tournament is therefore on the quicker side of medium-paced and therefore we need to look for players able to cope with those fast conditions.
Sandgren is the defending champion
Tennys Sandgren managed to win this tournament last year. If the American will, as we believe, fail to defend his title, he will have a marked drop in rankings. The good news for Sandgren is that he can get on with a rather easy opening round against local wild card Michael Venus. In round two toughs, things will get a lot more difficult as he will have to cope with John Isner who, in those conditions, can dictate the play. Isner is with Fabio Fognini, Karen Khachanov and Denis Shapovalov the seeds which will start from round two.
Top Betting Offers To Take Advantage Of In The ATP Auckland
Shapovalov looks the early favourite
It is Shapovalov the slight favourite to win this event at 5/1. He is followed by the seeds Khachanov, Isner and Fognini. The italian looks a valuable option, but the market is already starting to catching up with this, and we have seen his odds starting to shrink. If you are looking for a long-shots, you should consider Ugo Humbert who has good hard court numbers but also has a difficult draw. At 29/1 he will have to face defending champion Sandgren who is also starting with a similar price.
