Hurkacz had a smooth way to the quarterfinals in Basel and is considered the favourite in the match against Griekspoor.
Hubert Hurkacz 2-0 @ 6/5 (2.20)
Both of the previous matches between these two players were very tight and went all the way to the decisive set. Things look quite different at the moment as the Polish player is in much better shape. Griekspoor won two titles this season and is close to the best rankings of his career, but still, there is a huge gap between him and Hurkacz at the moment. The surface in Basel is perfect for Hurkacz’s style of play and he will take full advantage of that fact and win in straight sets.
First set under 10.5 games @ 3/5 (1.60)
Hurkacz has excellent serve and it will be very difficult for the Dutchman to break his serve, which may not be the case the other way around. The given odds for the total games in the opening set suggest that it may go all the way to the tie-break, but Hurkacz will not allow that. The Polish hammer is in excellent form and will take control of the match with an early break that will keep the opening set under 10.5 games in total.
