Quarter Betting: Men’s Main Draw
Our China Open tips start off with quarter betting; who will make it to the later stage? Let’s have a look at the chances for top players. The absence of some of the biggest names in the game has rendered the pre-tournament predictions somewhat irrelevant at the China Open, with both Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray pulling out of the event in the build-up. The ATP 500 event still possesses a very strong field, with youth and experience mixed nicely and it has been a highly entertaining week so far in the Chinese capital.
Here are our Quarter Betting China Open predictions:
In the absence of Nadal and Federer in Beijing, Juan Martin del Potro finds himself as the number 1 seed in a congested looking quarter in China. The Argentine has had a fine year, reaching the US Open Final last month and looks good value to top the quarter and reach the last 4 at 11/10 with Coral. Standing in his immediate way in round two is Russian powerhouse, Karen Khachanov who has enjoyed another solid year on the tour and he will fancy his chances of reaching the last 4 at 7/1 with Bet 365. Spanish veteran Feliciano Lopez overcame a tricky opening clash to defeat Borna Coric and reach round two and it would be some story if he could use his wild card and reach the last 4 here at 14/1 with William Hill.
As always, quarter two in any tournament draw tends to throw up some of the more evenly contested match-ups in any draw and Beijing this year is no different. Italian hot-shot Fabio Fognini is arguably the biggest name in quarter two and arrives fresh off the back of a strong showing in Chengdu last week. The Italian looks a good price at 5/2 with Unibet to reach the last 4 in Beijing. 2017 US Open semi-finalist Andrey Rublev has recovered well from injuries in 2018 and looks to be finding form once again and could be a strong shout at 7/2 with MansionBet to reach the semi-finals. French Open semi-finalist, Marco Cecchinato, has enjoyed a fantastic year and is seeded 8 here in Beijing. He will like his outside chances at 6/1 of reaching the last 4 with Bet-at-Home.
The third quarter in Beijing is by far and away the most difficult to call with some seriously big-hitters in with a chance of reaching the semi-final stage. Number 3 seed Grigor Dimitrov has endured a tough year but still has a strong chance of qualifying for the ATP World Tour Finals at the end of the season and will be looking to go all the way here at 5/2 with Betsson to at least reach the last 4. British number 1 Kyle Edmund has enjoyed a breakthrough year, reaching the Australian Open semi-finals as well as representing Team Europe in the Laver Cup. It’s been a long season but he will be one to watch at 7/2 with Royal Panda this week.
German hotshot and pre-tournament favourite Alexander Zverev is the biggest draw in quarter 4 with and looks pretty good value at 11/10 with TonyBet to reach the last 4 in Beijing. In his way stands some serious experience in the form of Fernando Verdasco who has enjoyed somewhat of a renaissance in recent weeks and the Spaniard is more than capable at 4/1 with 888sport of springing an upset. Elsewhere, Nikoloz Basilashvili has already accounted for the scalp of Jack Sock in Beijing this week and the Georgian has been in fine form this season and is genuinely one to watch here at an overpriced 7/1 with Betfred.

China Open tips: Quarter Betting – Women’s Main Draw
As one of the WTA’s Premier Mandatory events, the China Open in Beijing homes many of the biggest names in the women’s game – despite the absence of Simona Halep and Serena Williams through injury. Three of the current Grand Slam holders: Angelique Kerber, Caroline Wozniacki and Naomi Osaka headline what looks to be a fascinating draw in China that is sure to provide its share of thrills and spills.
Here are our Quarter Betting China Open predictions:
With world number 1 and top seed Simona Halep withdrawing on the eve of the event through injury, the top quarter of the draw in Beijing looks very open. Petra Kvitova’s first-round exit has left Sloane Stephens as the highest recognised seed in the top quarter. The 2017 US Open Champion is still desperately searching for some form with the WTA Tour Finals looming large next month and looks good value at 13/10 with Bet365 to reach the last 4. The absence of Halep has presented an opportunity for young Croatian Donna Vekic who looks to be part of the next generation on the WTA Tour; she could spring a surprise here at 6/1 with Royal Panda to win the quarter.
The second quarter in Beijing is littered with big names and Wimbledon champion Angelique Kerber is the headliner of an established bunch. A poor run of form since her Wimbledon triumph has checked her progress somewhat in recent weeks but the German is still a force to be reckoned with at 17/10 with Betsson to win the second quadrant. US Open Champion Naomi Osaka is in the form of her life and will be eager to put on a show for her Asian fan base here in Beijing – also 17/10 with Coral. World number 10 Julia Goerges has had a fantastic season, including a Wimbledon semi-final and the German will fancy her chances of spoiling the party in the second quarter at 7/2 with MansionBet.
Defending champion, Caroline Garcia, is the main draw in the fourth quadrant and the Frenchwoman has arrived in Beijing in good form. She produced some stunning tennis to lift the title in the Chinese capital last year and will fancy her chances at 13/10 with Bet Bright to at least reach the last 4 this season. Former world number 1, Karolina Pliskova, is the other main attraction in quadrant 3 and the Czech superstar has enjoyed a solid season on the tour, without necessarily getting the trophies under her belt. She is more than capable at 7/2 with Ladbrokes of spoiling Garcia’s party.
World number 2, Caroline Wozniacki, has had a mixed season, winning the Australian Open before an indifferent period across the French Open, Wimbledon and US Open. She enjoys the Asian swing and the hard courts however and is the firm favourite at Evens with Bet-at-Home to progress from the bottom quadrant. Kiki Bertens has had a solid year, culminating in reaching the last 8 at Wimbledon. The Dutchwoman is on the periphery of qualification of the WTA Tour finals in Singapore and wins here will help that cause. With her powerful game, she looks a real contender at 7/2 with William Hill to reach the semi-finals.
