ATP Valencia Open, 14:00 – Sousa v Paire
Paire has been in 2 finals this month. A Challenger and an ATP event. He lost both. That may not leave him too motivated for the remainder of the season. He lost the opening set to Lucky Loser Gombos in the first round this week.
Sousa has had some decent performances recently but a surprise loss to out of form Gimeno Traver was poor.
If Paire is a little tired after a busy month then Sousa has a real chance. The value is on Sousa.
Lay Paire when he is a break ahead.
ATP Swiss Open, 17:00 – Gasquet v Thiem
Gasquet served well against Vesely but wasted a lot of chances. He served well and saved both the break points he faced.
Thiem struggled in his match with Haase and lost the opening set 6-0.
Gasquet should be too strong today but I don’t see any value at 1.47. Wait for 1.75 or better.
Three sets wouldn’t surprise me.
