- Vit Kopriva vs. Filip Horansky (Bucharest Challenger)
- Cedrik-Marcel Stebe vs. Michael Vrbensky (Braga Challenger)
Tennis – Bucharest challenger R16: Vit Kopriva vs. Filip Horansky
Another clay event this week for Vit Kopriva who has been in mediocre form since his brilliant run in Gstaad where in reached the semifinals, beating Denis Shapovalov and Mikael Ymer along the way. Since this great result, the player from Czech Republic lost 7 times (6 on clay), out of 10 matches, though overall in 2021 his record on clay has been solid (30 wins – 18 losses).
Filip Horansky does not seem to be in better form. Actually, 2021 has been one of his most disappointing seasons in terms of win-loss ratio with 21 wins and 25 losses. On clay, Horansky's record is also negative with 15 wins and 17 losses. The player from Slovakia had his best result on hard court (indoors) when he reached the final in Quimper (challenger) back in January.
Prediction: We noticed the betting odds for this encounter look quite interesting. Kopriva can be matched at circa 1.65-1.70, and while the Czech player has been inconsistent lately, his pedigree on clay is more convincing. We predict: Kopriva to win (Match odds).
Tennis – Braga challenger R16: Cedrik-Marcel Stebe vs. Michael Vrbensky
Braga challenger is also played on clay. Cedrik-Marcel Stebe has been trying hard to come back since his promising results at the beginning of the 2010 decade. The player from Germany was a rising force when he entered the top 100 about ten years ago. Sadly, a serious injury stopped his progression. This season, Stebe reached the quarterfinals in Lyon (challenger) which has been his best result so far.
Michael Vrbensky played almost exclusively on clay this year, with a mediocre win-loss ratio (16 wins – 20 losses). His best run was at home in Prague where he reached the semifinals. There is no head-to-head record between Stebe and Vrbensky, and both players have been quite inconsistent this season. We believe Stebe is too much of a favorite to be worth a bet in this match. Vrbensky is available around 2.60 and it could be worth a shot.
Prediction: Since the betting market is favoring Stebe at the moment, a bet on Vrbensky could be a tempting option. We predict: Vrbensky to win (Match odds).
