Verdasco vs. Fritz
Fernando Verdasco pulled off a major upset at the BNP Paribas Open by defeating the reigning ATP World Tour Finals champion Grigor Dimitrov. Known as one of the most talented players in the game, the 34-year-old recorded his 28th career victory over a top 10 player. Nevertheless, Verdasco’s inconsistency is well-known with the former world No.7 unable to perform at his best in consecutive matches.
Taylor Fritz continues to impress in Indian Wells. The 20-year-old is enjoying great success this season with an outstanding 79.17% winning record in 2018. Taking a look now at Taylor’s campaign on this event, the world No.74 reaches this stage of the competition after 6 – 4 7 – 6 win over Andrey Rublev. Adding to this, Fritz saved one match point in his opening match at the BNP Paribas Open against his great friend Reilly Opelka.
This will be the 2nd career meeting between these two players with Verdasco emerging victorious from their previous encounter at the Winston-Salem Open in 2016.
Despite Fernando’s brilliant performance in the previous round, it won’t be easy for the Spaniard to overcome such a tough opponent as Fritz. On the other hand, betting against Verdasco after a big win is always an interesting approach. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to take advantage of the value on Taylor’s tennis betting odds at 39/25 as the most valuable play for this match.
