Maxime Cressy vs Felix Auger-Aliassime prediction and odds: Rotterdam Open 2024

With plenty of events taking place this week, our tennis predictions today are loaded with awesome tips for top-tier matches. The upcoming game this evening between Cressy and Auger-Aliassime is one of these matches, and I’ve got all of the details for you below.

Our favourite Maxime Cressy vs Felix Auger-Aliassime predictions

Maxime Cressy is one of the qualifiers who made it into the main draw of the Rotterdam Open. He now faces the unseeded Canadian, Felix Auger-Aliassime, in round one. That said, while Cressy is ranked outside of the top 100, while Auger-Aliassime is ranked in the top 30, it’s actually even in the head-to-head department.

So what does this mean for my predictions for this game? Let me show you now.

Cressy to win a set – yes @ 17/20 (1.85)

Since Cressy has produced two solid wins in qualifying, I reckon he has a great chance of taking a set from Auger-Aliassime tonight. Of course, this is because he will be familiar with the courts, and the fact that he has a top-level serve also helps.

Cressy +3.5 games handicap @ 4/7 (1.57)

If Cressy wins a set, the chance of this market pulling through increases massively. However, even if he fails to take a set from the Canadian, he could still ensure a margin that falls within 3 games. After all, his serve alone puts him as a contender to push Auger-Aliassime into a tie-break or two.

Maxime Cressy vs Felix Auger-Aliassime odds

Auger-Aliassime has a 76.90% chance of victory based on the latest odds. But Cressy’s chance of victory is just 29.40%.

Will Felix make it 2-1 against the big-serving American?

These two guys may not have been in the spotlight in our Rotterdam Open preview. However, this doesn’t particularly matter when it comes to creating high-value predictions. And on that note, let me share a further preview for each individual ahead of this encounter.

Maxime Cressy preview

Cressy has a very unique style of tennis – that we can all agree on. He is a bit of a kamikaze player, which can work to his advantage against top-level players. Additionally, he has won two three-set matches in a row to qualify for the 2024 Rotterdam Open. So he’s playing decent tennis right now.

Felix Auger-Aliassime preview

As a former top 10 player, Auger-Aliassime will be hoping to bring his ranking up from his current position of 28 in the world. To do this, however, he needs to pull through these kinds of matches to rack up the points. And one key thing working in his favour here is the fact that he’s won this tournament before!

Cressy vs Auger-Aliassime head to head

These guys are perfectly poised in the head-to-head at 1-1. Cressy beat Auger-Aliassime back in 2022 at Wimbledon, while Auger-Aliassime beat Cressy in their most recent match in Dubai. In both matches, neither player secured a straight-set win.
