Here are our top Madrid Open Men’s Quarter betting tips.
Top Quarter Betting Madrid Open Predictions
World number 1 Novak Djokovic is the top seed here in Madrid and he’ll be looking to find some form on clay following a disappointing showing at the Monte Carlo Masters. He tends to save his very best tennis for the Grand Slams but does need to show some form and looks a good bet at 2/5 with Ladbrokes to reach the last 4 here.
Marin Cilic is an experienced campaigner on the ATP Tour but has never produced his very best tennis on clay. He has struggled for form in recent weeks and needs a boost but looks a little under-priced at 4/1 with Unibet to reach a much needed semi-final this week.
Argentine Juan Martin del Potro has been side lined through injury for the majority of this season but will be looking to go two better than his semi-final appearance at the French Open last year. He is always capable of producing results and with the draw being so open, it would be naïve to rule him out at 6/1 with William Hill.
Clay court specialist Diego Schwartzmann has not enjoyed his best year on tour but he seems to be relishing a return to the ‘dirt’. He is always a fascinating player to watch and his variety could cause his opponents problems and the Argentine is 11/1 with 888sport to reach the last 4 in Madrid.
The second quadrant is packed with talent and Dominic Thiem is arguably the hottest property on the ATP Tour right now. He will be looking to add to his titles in Indian Wells and Barcelona on his undisputed favoured surface. The Austrian looks set to break into the world’s elite and he is 4/5 with Betsson to progress from the second quarter and reach the semi-finals.
Roger Federer returns to the ATP Tour following a sustained break since winning the Miami Open last month. His form continues to defy logic at the age of 37 and despite clay not being his favoured surface, he will be very much one to watch over the upcoming clay court campaign. The GOAT is 15/8 with MansionBet to progress to the last 4 and win the quarter.
Monte Carlo Masters Champion Fabio Fognini is another man enjoying a rich vein of form and he will fancy his chances of causing an upset here. The passionate Italian has become a fans favourite on the tour and he could cause some damage here at 9/2 with Royal Panda.
Enigmatic Frenchman Gael Monfils has been in decent nick all season and he too will feel he is capable of upsetting the likes of Federer and Thiem. He could be another one to watch at 10/1 with BetSafe.
Alexander Zverev arrives in Madrid in a horrible vein of form and despite his seeding of 4 for the event; he will feel like he needs time on the court to improve his performances. The young German is more than capable at this level and with odds of 13/8 with TonyBet to reach the semi-finals; he could be a decent bet to find form when it matters.
Greek superstar Stefanos Tsitsipas is knocking on the door of the likes of Zverev and Thiem above him in the pecking order and following his win in Estoril last week, he looks well set to establish himself within the elite. He’ll relish the challenge here and could be a good bet to reach the last 4 at 10/3 with Bet-at-Home.
Big-hitting Russian Karen Khachanov is another man that looks set for big things on the ATP Tour but he has really struggled on clay so far this season. He will be hoping to find some form before the French Open but looks a little under-priced at 7/2 with Guts to reach the last 4 here.
Australian Open semi-finalist Lucas Pouille is a man for all surfaces and he looks to be back at the top of his game following a difficult 2018. He will have to be at his very best to stop the likes of Zverev and Tsitsipas but he could upset the odds at 8/1 with Bet365.
Six-time champion Rafael Nadal is the overall favourite for the title in Madrid but he needs to bounce back from disappointing showings in Monte Carlo and Barcelona in recent weeks. He looks to have a decent draw this week and should reach the last 4 at 1/3 with Bwin.
Swiss legend Stan Wawrinka is a man returning on the ATP Tour and despite no form to speak of thus far, he has the credentials to upset the likes of Nadal here. He is best priced 9/2 with Bet365 and could be one to watch if Nadal isn’t firing on all cylinders.
Japanese superstar Kei Nishikori has enjoyed a decent start to 2019 without necessarily backing it up with the trophies. His exceptional movement allows him to enjoy playing on clay and whilst he may struggle against the likes of Nadal and Wawrinka he has the will power and should not be ruled out at 7/1 with Ladbrokes.
Argentine Guido Pella has enjoyed a decent European clay court swing but has been stopped in his tracks by Nadal in recent weeks. He has the game to trouble the very best on clay and could be one to watch at 9/1 with Betfred.
