The Estoril Open Final takes place this Sunday with Pablo Carreno Busta and Gilles Muller fighting for the title. Bookmakers Review breaks down the fixture below and lists the best available odds from green listed bookmakers.
Carreno Busta vs. Muller
As we predicted in our ATP Estoril semi-finals analysis, David Ferrer couldn’t find the answer for Pablo Carreno Busta’s consistency. Despite facing one of the best returners in the game, Carreno Busta didn’t allow a single break of serve to his fellow countryman. Playing in Portugal brings great memories to Pablo with the Spaniard reaching his 2nd consecutive final in Estoril. After losing against Nicolas Almagro in the decisive match last season, Carreno Busta is once again just one win away from lifting the trophy.
Gilles Muller continues his surprising run in Estoril. Known as one of the best servers on the ATP World Tour, Muller’s game style is far from effective on clay. With a poor 44.00% winning record on red dirt throughout his career on the ATP World Tour, it’s surprising to see Gilles reaching this final. However, the world no.28 is going through the best moment in his career and already secured his career high ranking next week.
This will be the 3rd career meeting between these two players. Muller won their first encounter two years ago in Melbourne while Carreno Busta got his revenge three months later in Estoril.
Despite Muller’s recent improvements on this surface, Carreno Busta is the undeniable favourite to win the title. With this in mind, we’ll go once again with the Spaniard with William Hill offering 1/2 for his victory while Muller is available at 81/50 at Bet365.
