Alejandro Davidovich Fokina to win @ 11/20 (1.55)
Both players are having a breakout season and are on the verge of finding their way into the Top 20. They both prefer playing on clay, but Cerundolo is the one who struggles on other surfaces, while Davidovich Fokins has adapted well. The Spaniard is the better overall player despite being lower ranked than Cerundolo. He runs better and that will make the difference tonight.
Over 20.5 games @ 4/5 (1.80)
Playing on a hard surface usually makes it more difficult for the players to break serves, and seeing the total game line being this low is quite surprising. Both players are in good shape and will give their best in such a tournament. Therefore, going over 20.5 game i total is very likely.
