Del Potro vs. Mayer
Juan Martin Del Potro continues his quest for a first ever BNP Paribas Open title. The 29-year-old extended his winning streak to seven matches after beating the former world No.3 David Ferrer in straight sets. Known as one of the best servers in the game, the 2009 US Open champion won 86.67% of the points behind his first serve. Adding to this, Del Potro generated 16 break point chances on Ferrer’s serve.
Regardless of this Wednesday’s outcome, Leonardo Mayer already secured his return to the top 45 for the first time since May 2016. Playing in Indian Wells brings the best out of Mayer with the Argentinean winning 66.67% of the matches played throughout his career at the BNP Paribas Open. Taking a look now at Leonardo’s campaign on this event, the 30-year-old reaches this stage of the competition after a 6 – 4 6 – 1 win over Taro Daniel.
This will be the 2nd career meeting between these two players with Del Potro emerging victorious from their previous encounter at the 2012 US Open in straight sets.
Despite Mayer’s undeniable quality, it’s impossible to go against Del Potro at the moment. On the other hand, the high bouncing conditions in the California desert should benefit Juan Martin on this match-up. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to place a bet on Del Potro’s -4 Game Handicap at 4/5 at Pinnacle as the best betting approach for this contest.
