2023 Halle Open Predictions – Best Tennis Tips for the Day

Alongside the Queen’s Club Championships, the Halle Open is one of two ATP 500 events played on grass this year. Interestingly, both tournaments took place in the same week. Of the 32 players who made the trip to North Rhine-Westphalia for this competition, there are only two left standing. Given that neither player has won this event in the past, we’ll have a brand new Halle Open champion at the end of this tournament.

Terra Wartmann Open Predictions – Outright Winner

It’s important to point out that only one player has won back-to-back Halle Open titles in the past 24 years. In that timeframe, Roger Federer reached 13 finals, winning 10 titles. While this has always been one of the Swiss player’s favourite events, he unfortunately will not feature in this year’s edition of the Halle Open, having retired last year.

On one hand, Alexander Bublik has earned his place in the final of this competition. The Kazakhstani did not have an easy draw, as he has had to face Alexander Zverev, Jannik Sinner, Jan-Lennard Struff and Borna Coric in this competition. In spite of this, the 26 year old player surrendered just one set en route to his first ever Halle Open final. Considering who he has faced in this competition, the Kazakhstani has everything it takes to win this tournament.

On the other hand, this isn’t Andrey Rublev’s first rodeo at the Halle Open final; he was a finalist here two years ago, where he lost to Ugo Humbert. To be fair, Rublev hasn’t really faced the kind of tough opposition as Alexander Bublik; however, he has held his own against today’s opponent in the past. We would like to point out that Andrey Rublev has three wins in four previous skirmishes between these players. As a matter of fact, he came out on top the last three times these players went toe-to-toe with each other. Although Alexander Bublik has been on an impressive run this week, we are leaning towards his Russian opponent for the victory.
