ATP Acapulco 500 and ATP Santiago 250 Round of 16

Clay-court tennis

ATP Acapulco 500 Round of 15
Altmaier – Kecmanovic: 29.02.2024 02:30 CEST
H2H: 0-1

Daniel Altmaier played probably his biggest match of his career yesterday in Acapulco. He managed to win against Zverev, the first seed in this tournament! Altmaier started this year on a good note, but then after losing in Australia, he struggled a lot. This win is a big confidence boost for him and if he can continue to play that well like he did yesterday, we believe that he might go far this week and maybe even get into the top 50 rankings! His opponent, Miomir Kecmanovic, has a similar situation. After losing against Alcaraz in Australia, he lost three matches in a row against opponents who were all ranked worse than him.

His ground strokes looked insecure, and he made many unforced errors throughout those matches. In the first round, here in Acapulco, he managed to win against Schwartzman in three sets. However, both players did not play well, and it was not a fun match to watch! All being said, we believe that Altmaier is in better form at the moment, and we believe that he has a big chance to win tonight! Altmaier to win as an underdog is a big value bet, and you should definitely go for it!

Value bet/ the best odds: Altmaier to win @2.50 @bet365

Shelton – Arnaldi: 29.02.2024 02:30 CEST
H2H: first meeting

Ben Shelton has had some ups and downs this season already. He has not been consistent this year, but he was playing well. Ben is a big server who is not returning well. We saw that last night as well, when he played three rough sets against Dan Evans. Shelton won 2-1, but if he did not serve that well, he would have lost it. His opponent, Arnaldi, is a young Italian who had his best year last year. His tennis has really improved, and he is an all-around player who plays all ground strokes solidly.

He stunned Fritz in the first round where he played his best match of his young career. We believe that he is still unlocking his full potential and that this young Italian might be a future Grand Slam winner and top 5 player! This match is a really tough one to predict. Shelton should be able to hold his service games easily, but also not be able to break Arnaldi easily. We believe that we will watch a really tough match with three possible sets and maybe even a couple of tiebreaks.

Value bet/ the best odds: over 22.5 games @1.80 @bet365

ATP Santiago 250 Round of 16

Munar – Ramos Vinolas: 29.02.2024 Time TBA
H2H: 1-5

Jaume Munar is slowly getting his prime form back. He played his first round match in Santiago almost perfect. Munar managed to break Zapata Miralles five times and only lost his serve one time! Last year he played in the semi-finals here, where he lost in a tough match against Jarry. He once mentioned that he loves this tournament and that he feels good every time he plays in Santiago. His opponent, Ramos Vinolas, is a veteran clay court player who is slowly finishing his career.

We can see that his footwork is giving up and that his recovery is way longer than usual. Even with him winning in the first round in straight sets, we believe that Ramos-Vinolas is far away from his prime level. Munar is currently a better, younger player, and we believe that he will win easily!

Value bet/ the best odds: Munar to win 2-0 @2.20 @bet365
