Pablo Carreno Busta
Pablo Carreno Busta is ranked 19 right now and he is a veteran player and has once been a tenth-ranked player. He is seeded at 16 for Wimbledon and will look to make a deep run. In his last tournament during Mallorca Open, his run was stalled by Nick Krygios in the third round. In French Open, he was ousted by Gilles Simon in the first round. Except for Barcelona Open, Pablo’s run has been ended prematurely and often by unseeded players, which is not a welcome sign.
Known for his low-key style, Pablo believes in exhausting his opponents and can exchange in tenuous rallies, waiting for his opponents to make mistakes. He is not as aggressive as the top-ranked players but he plays percentage tennis and has been better on grass courts recently. The trouble for Pablo is losing to the lower-seeded players and he needs to break that spell before Wimbledon.
Antoine is not a high-ranked player and has never been on the ATP circuit. He is ranked at 303 which is surely an uphill task to accomplish for a 25-year old player. Due to this, Antoine has to first participate in a bunch of Qualifiers to climb ahead. He is usually busty with the Challenger series and has not made any major tournament so far. Do note that the current ranking of 303 is the highest in Bellier’s career. And also note that Antoine did a brilliant job of defeating an 85th ranked player in Federico Delbonis in the last round.
Expert Betting Tips
There is no doubt that Pablo is the favorite here and a loss will be marked as one of the biggest upsets you’ll ever see. Antoine has earned his stripes after getting so far but this has to be it for the Swiss player. That is why a one-sided bet for Pablo should be a safe one.
