The European clay court season moves from Spanish courts to Munich, Bavaria. While the ATP top players enjoy a week of rest, those who are currently outside the top 10 have the opportunity to grab the ATP 250 title. The main competitors in Munich will be German players representing for home fans.
The event has a very close draw and plenty possible scenarios.
Weather and Courts
The weather in Munich is expected to be just awful for tennis. Rain is forecasted and the temperature rising only up to 15°C. Strong wind will make the playing conditions even more challenging. 10kmph during the entire week. On Monday gusts of wind will be up to 20 kmph. It’ll be curious to watch how the players will cope with such weather. The cold will raise the possibility of injuries. Despite the fact that clay courts tend to absorb rain quickly, players may suffer from poor grip as they did in Barcelona.
All this should be taken into account when choosing a selection for betting.
Since 1974, when the event was held for the first time, the German players triumphed seven times. Last year, Philipp Kohlschreiber lifted the title. In 2015 Andy Murray became a champion, but top level players are rather an exception to the rule. In general, the event favors various nationalities: the Russians, the Argentines. The outcome depends on the goals of every single competitor.
The draw features many German players, both rather strong and of mediocre form. There is the veteran Tommy Haas, the brothers Alexander and Mischa Zverev (who are currently out of their best), Philipp Kohlschreiber (who seems to have prepared right for this event), Jan-Lennard Struff (who is playing unstoppably now), young Maximilian Marterer and Daniel Masur.
Hot favorites are Gael Monfils (if he appears to be 100% fit), Alexander Zverev (who should be up to his best on home courts), Marin Klizan, Fabio Fognini (unless he’s distracted by his baby birth), Roberto Bautista Agut and Thomaz Bellucci.
Best first round battle
Philipp Kohlschreiber will start his title defending campaign with the round first match-up against the young Norwegian Casper Ruud. 18 year old, Casper has already made it to the Miami and Monte-Carlo Masters 1000 tournaments. He reached the semis in Rio and now should be a good test for the German last year's champion.
