Don’t miss our top tennis play for this Thursday’s action in Geneva with Steve Johnson and Mischa Zverev fighting for a place at the Banque Eric Sturdza Geneva Open semi-finals. Bookmakers Review breaks down the fixture below and lists the best available odds from green listed bookmakers.
Johnson vs. Zverev
At the age of 27, Steve Johnson is going through a great moment in his career. After winning his 2nd career title on the ATP World Tour in Houston earlier this year, Johnson couldn’t ask for a better start to the European clay-court season. Despite not playing a single match for over a month, Steve started his campaign in Geneva with two impressive victories over Stephane Robert and Horacio Zeballos.
Known as one of the best serve and volley players on the ATP World Tour, Mischa Zverev is far from a clay-court expert. Despite his terrible 42.53% winning record on red dirt throughout his career, Zverev is enjoying the game conditions in Geneva. Taking a look now at Mischa’s campaign on this event, the German qualifier reaches this stage of the competition after defeating Robin Haase and John Isner.
Despite Mischa’s impressive run on this event, Johnson should be too strong for the German. Having said that, our suggestion is for you to place a bet on Steve at 53/100 at Coral while William Hill offers 8/5 for Zverev’s victory. Besides the value on Johnson’s moneyline, his -1.5 Set Handicap at 147/100 at Pinnacle is also an interesting approach for those who want to take a higher risk.
