Cristian Garin to Cover +4.5 Games

First of all, we would like to point out that Cristian Garin is coming into this match with a ton of confidence. The Chilean has won four matches in a row, all in straight sets. In contrast, Casper Ruud hasn’t been consistent since the start of the year. He has played eight singles matches across all competitions in 2023, with four wins and four losses. Furthermore, the Norwegian has lost two of three meetings with Cristian Garin. Taking everything into account, we are fairly confident that Garin will keep it close enough to cover this line.

Over 21.5 Games

We’ve established that despite being a huge favourite here, Casper Ruud has been inconsistent of late. With that in mind, we don’t expect this to be as one-sided as the odds suggest. Cristian Garin has won eight consecutive sets, and should be able to hold his own against the former World number 2. As these players go toe-to-toe, we believe that both players will take at least one set, and this match will go over 21.5 games.

How have these players fared in recent weeks? Let’s have a look.

Cristian Garin

Cristian Garin made it through to the main draw of this tournament as a qualifier. In spite of that, he earned a spot in the third round, dispatching his first two opponents in straight sets. Ahead of this fixture, Garin has won four matches in a row, and eight consecutive sets. He’ll look to extend that streak as he takes on an out-of-form Casper Ruud today.

Casper Ruud

This year hasn’t been very kind on Casper Ruud so far. The former World number 2 has struggled to find his form, losing four of his last seven singles matches. Ruud will take on an in-form Cristian Garin on Sunday; and he’ll set his sights on a fourth round spot.
