With top contenders like Alcaraz, Rune, and Medvedev set to grace the event’s main draw, the stage is set for an electrifying showdown of talent and skill.

But before the main event kicks off, let’s take a moment to delve into the fierce competition of the Toronto Open Qualifiers, where emerging talents and seasoned hopefuls will clash in a determined quest for a spot in the prestigious main draw.

Toronto Open Qualifying Predictions – Round 1

Here are our top betting tips for the upcoming ATP Canadian Open qualifying round:

Ilya Ivashka vs Yosuke Watanuki

Both Ivashka and Watanuki impressed in their hard-court adventures last week. The Belarusian ace reached the third round of the Los Cabos Open before heading into Borna Coric. On the other hand, Watanuki also reached the third round of the Citi Open but was knocked out by Ugo Humbert. They are meeting each other for the first time, and are pretty well matched, making it a difficult bet to make. The Japanese ace has a 13-15 record, much better than Ivashka’s 12-19 win-loss form. Given Watanuki’s better overall record, we believe he has the upper hand in this meeting and will progress to the next stage.

Dane Sweeny vs Taro Daniel

Neither Sweeny nor Daniel are in the form to feel confident about. While Sweeny added silverware to his ranks earlier in the year in Adelaide, Daniel has not gone past the quarter-final stage. In the lower rungs, Sweeny has accumulated three wins and as many defeats in his last six matches, Daniel has only two wins in the same period. However, the pedigree of rivals has been far tougher for the Japanese. Despite this, Daniel has a 13-9 record on hard courts this year, much better than Sweeny’s 15-14 win-loss statistic. While his form is not there, he should have enough in the tank to overcome his rival. It will not be an easy match and we should see Over 19.5 Games to find a victor.

Matteo Arnaldi vs Aleksander Kovacevic

Ranked 129 in the world, Kovacevic is the underdog heading into the first-round qualifier. The American ace has a tough challenge in Arnaldo, who is has improved to 65 in the ATP rankings. The duo have shared five challenger titles between them but we believe Kovacevic has the upper hand in this duel. While Arnaldi focused on the hard court after Wimbledon, the American is readying for his sixth match on the hard court. He has a 16-9 record on the surface, an improvement on Arnaldi’s 10-9. Based on this, we are backing Kovacevic to triumph against a rival much higher in the rankings.
