Garin vs Daniel predictions


Cristian Garin and Taro Daniel square off for the first time as the pair aim for a spot in the Geneva Open quarter-finals on Wednesday.

Few players have been more impressive on clay courts than Garin this season. After winning three straight Challengers on the surface to close out 2018, Garin has taken his game to another level in 2019, winning his first two ATP titles in Houston and Munich, along with finishing runner-up in Sao Paolo.

The former junior French Open champion has put together a rapid rise to No. 37 in the world and will be one of the most dangerous floaters at Roland Garros next week.

However, for now, Garin has his sights set on a third ATP 250 title on the dirt in Geneva, where he is playing the main draw for the second time after a R1 exit back in 2016 - can he get off to a winning start on Wednesday after enjoying a bye in the opening round? He’s 2/5 @ William Hill.

Daniel meanwhile overcame little-known Spanish qualifier Bernabe Zapata Miralles in three sets in his opening round on Monday.

The Japanese won his maiden ATP title on the clay of Istanbul last season, but unfortunately didn’t get the chance to defend his crown after the tournament was scrapped from the calendar this year.

Best known for beating Novak Djokovic when the Serbian was still working his way back from injury in Indian Wells last year, Daniel kicked off the clay season by making the Marrakech quarter-finals, but he lost his last two matches coming into Geneva in Madrid and Rome qualifying. Can he upset the in-form Garin in Geneva? He’s 9/4 @ bet365.

Garin vs Daniel betting tips


Garin is riding a big wave of momentum on clay at the moment and it’s likely going to take a huge performance to take him down. Does Daniel have it in him? It’s unlikely - the Japanese is a very solid player, but he doesn’t really have the biggest of weapons to call upon, and when you come up against a consistent and heavy grinder on clay that is in form and has more firepower, it’s not the recipe for success. If Garin plays like he has over the last couple of months, he should be winning this fairly comfortably.
