Don’t miss our top tennis play for this Friday’s action in Rome with Juan Martin Del Potro and Novak Djokovic fighting for a place at the Internazionali BNL D’Italia semi-finals. Bookmakers Review breaks down the fixture below and lists the best available odds from green listed bookmakers.
Del Potro vs. Djokovic
After defeating Kei Nishikori in the previous round, Juan Martin Del Potro already secured his return to the top 30 next week. Once again, Del Potro’s forehand proved decisive in the match against Nishikori with the Argentinean ending the match with 15 winners and only 3 unforced errors with that shot. Besides this, Del Potro won 40.63% of the points on the Japanese’s serve.
The former world no.1 – Novak Djokovic – continues to pursue his 5th career title in Rome. Despite his lack of success in recent months, Djokovic is slowly returning to his best level. Looking now at Novak’s numbers throughout the tournament, the highlight goes to his service stats with the Serbian allowing only two breaks of serve in the two previous rounds against Aljaz Bedene and Roberto Bautista Agut.
When looking at the odds for this match, Pinnacle offer a very interesting 13/25 for Djokovic’s victory. This is by far the best price for the Serbian to defeat this opponent since 2011. Even though Del Potro played at a very good level in the previous round, Novak is a completely different challenge. For that reason, it’s impossible to find any value on the Argentinean’s tennis odds at 7/4 with Bet365. Besides the value on Djokovic’s moneyline, his -3.0 game handicap is also a good option for those who want to take a higher risk at 19/20 at Pinnacle.
