We’ve reached the decisive day with Stan Wawrinka and Mischa Zverev fighting for Geneva’s glory this Saturday. Bookmakers Review breaks down the fixture below and lists the best available odds from green listed bookmakers.
Wawrinka vs. Zverev
Against all expectations, Mischa Zverev booked a place at the Geneva Open final after an incredible victor over the world no.9 – Kei Nishikori. Even though clay is far from Mischa’s favourite surface, the German qualifier is enjoying the fast court conditions in Geneva. Taking a look now at Zverev’s numbers throughout the tournament, the highlight clearly goes to his serve with Mischa winning 89.90% of his service games on this event.
The defending champion – Stan Wawrinka – continues his successful run in Geneva. Despite his lack of success in recent weeks, Wawrinka is just one win away from his 2nd consecutive title on this event. Looking now at Stan’s campaign in Geneva, the three-time Grand Slam champion reaches this stage of the competition after a 6 – 3 7 – 6 victory over Andrey Kuznetsov.
These two players are no strangers with Wawrinka winning their first encounter 9 years ago in Wimbledon while Zverev got his revenge last season in Basel.
Despite Mischa’s sensational campaign on this event, Wawrinka should be too strong for the German. Adding to this, Stan won 84.62% of his last 13 finals on the ATP World Tour. Therefore, Wawrinka is the undeniable favourite to lift the trophy in Geneva at 1/4 with William Hill while Coral offers 333/100 for Zverev’s victory. Due to the low price on Stan’s moneyline, our suggestion is to place once again a bet on his -1.5 Set Handicap at 19/25 with Pinnacle as the best betting approach for this final.
