|Jaume Munar||-140 |
|Philipp Kohlschreiber||+115 |
Munar reached the final on the claycourt event in Marbella back in April but since he’s won just one of his eight matches at tour level.
In contrast, Kohlschreiber has raised his confidence levels with a run of decent form.
He caught the eye with a run to the third round of the French Open, his last claycourt tournament. Aslan Karatsev and Fernando Verdasco were two decent scalps claimed in Paris.
He’s since backed that up with a run to the quarter-finals in Halle, while at Wimbledon, losing in five sets to eventual semi-finalist Denis Shapovalov was no disgrace.
Back on home soil where he’s regularly performed well through his career, Kohlschreiber looks capable of landing this column another underdog winner.

Daniel Altmaier vs Filip Krajinovic
|Daniel Altmaier||-110 |
|Filip Krajinovic||-115 |
Krajinovic is another player struggling for form right now and he looks vulnerable in this clash.
The Serb, seeded sixth at the Hamburg European Open, heads into this contest having lost six of his last seven matches.
Home hope Altmaier, who enters via a wild card, will bring plenty of confidence into the meeting though after he won a Challenger Tour event in Braunschweig on Sunday.
He didn’t lose a set all week at that event so should still have plenty left in the tank to face the higher-ranked Krajinovic, who can play on clay but frankly has a game better suited to faster surfaces.

Jordan Thompson vs Cedrik-Marcel Stebe

|Jordan Thompson||-110 |
|Cedrik-Marcel Stebe||-115 |
I’ve been keen on Thompson throughout the grasscourt season, one which reaches its final destination this week – namely Newport in Rhode Island.
It’s far from a coincidence that the Australian is to be found playing in the Hall of Fame Open – this is a surface he loves and he’s proved it with some decent displays in Europe, including a run to the third round of Wimbledon where he beat seed Casper Ruud and Kei Nishikori.
Well-bedded in on the surface, Thompson should be able to comfortably see off Stebe, who has so far failed to win a match on grass this season.
In fact, he has just one tour-level win anywhere in 2021, while you have to go back eight years to find his last win on this surface.
He actually has only two tour-level wins on the grass in his entire career and while it’s fair to mention he’s had plenty of injuries over the years, it’s still a woeful record.
Expect Thompson to breeze this with -134 about a straight-set victory looking just fine.

Best Outright Pick
Stefanos Tsitsipas has entered the Hamburg European Open with a wild card but odds-on quotes look skinny indeed – after all, the only reason he’s here is get matches under his belt ahead of the Olympics because he lost miserably in the opening round of Wimbledon.
He can be opposed with Federico Delbonis, a player who has won plenty of matches on clay so far this season.
The Argentine made the quarter-finals of the Rome Masters before going on to reach the fourth round of Roland Garros.
He’s in the bottom half of the draw where Pablo Carreno Busta and Albert Ramos-Vinolas are the highest seeds.
However, Delbonis holds a 5-2 winning record over both men and so looks to have every chance of emerging from this half.
Whether Tsitsipas will be waiting in the final is open to question so Delbonis looks the best outright play and can be backed at +1200.
