Alexander Zverev to beat David Ferrer in straight sets, ATP Rotterdam R1


Back in his preferred best-of-three sets format and coming off a confidence-boosting Davis Cup triumph over Nick Kyrgios and Australia in Brisbane just over a week ago, Alexander Zverev should be returning to his best tennis over the next few weeks - starting in Rotterdam on Monday night against David Ferrer.

While it’s true that Zverev has lost both his previous meetings with Ferrer, the pair haven’t squared off since 2016, and it’s safe to say the World No. 4 is a much different player today. After a disappointing Australian Open, it can’t be overstated how important that straight sets win over Kyrgios in Davis Cup was for Zverev, and I think it will provide the perfect platform for him to kick-start his season here in Rotterdam. Ferrer will keep fighting on tour, but the reality is that he’s nowhere near as good as he once was, and if Zverev plays like he did in Brisbane, he will be winning this in straight sets.

CiCi Bellis to beat Daria Kasatkina (head-to-head), WTA Doha R1


Going for the upset in this one. Kasatkina is coming off a win over World No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki in St. Petersburg just over a week ago, but so far in her career the young Russian has struggled to put together successful back-to-back tournaments, while she remains a pretty erratic player on tour.

Bellis, the 18-year-old phenom from the USA, hasn’t had the best start to the season, but she’s played well in the Middle East before, and her big and fearless game could cause the more passive Kasatkina problems. Think this is a 50/50 match-up, so there’s value in the underdog.

Federico Delbonis to beat Florian Mayer in straight sets, ATP Buenos Aires R1


Both Delbonis and Mayer are yet to register a tour-level victory in 2018, but this represents an excellent chance for the former to get off the mark - and convincingly at that.

Mayer is well and truly in the twilight of his career at 34 years of age and countless injuries behind him and just lost in qualifying indoors in Sofia seven days ago. Making the long trip to Argentina in completely different conditions (outdoors and clay) will prove very difficult to overcome for the German veteran.

Delbonis hasn’t played well this season, but the Argentine has a big game and loves competing on clay. Playing at home against an opponent that can only threaten on the main tour one or two times a season these days, Delbonis should be winning this one fairly comfortably.
