Tallon Griekspoor vs Daniel Evans Prediction and Odds: Citi Open 2023

No one could have predicted that Grikspoor and Evans would go this far in the Citi Open but here they are playing for the title in Washington DC.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Tallon Griekspoor vs Daniel Evans – Match Predictions

Both players had an excellent week at the Citi Open and have a unique opportunity to win a ATP 500 tournament.

Daniel Evans to win

Daniel Evans has a losing record this year but the way he played this week in Washington DC has reminded us of his prime. He beat the odds many times this week and now in the finals, he is facing a player he never lost a set two. Griekspoor is considered a favorite by the bookies and he also had a great week, but still, I am going with Evans to win this one. The Brit defeated Dimitrov and Tiafoe in straight sets in the previous matches and he will have no problems winning his first title of the season.

Over 23.5 games

Both players had a great week in the US capital and this will be a real tennis fight between two players who are not often in the finals of any tournament. The total games margin is a little higher than usual but that will not make a difference since this match will probably go in the decisive set.
