Prediction and betting tips

Casper Ruud has shown strong play in the middle of the season. He has a streak of six victories and has won 18 of the last 23 matches. Ruud beat Roberto Bautista Agut in the last match and Matteo Berrettini in the final of his previous tournament.

Felix Auger-Aliassime is not looking as strong as his next rival. He has lost five of the last 10 matches with three rivals out of top-100 ATP Ranking. He has lost five of the last six matches against opponents from top-10 ATP and was absolutely destroyed in the last H2H game against Casper Ruud. I believe that the Norwegian tennis player will finish this match in his favor to qualify for the next stage.
