In the 1/16 finals of the ATP tournament in Montreal, Kasper Ruud from Norway will play against Slovakian Alex Molchan.
The 23-year-old representative of Norway is just about to start at the tournament in Canada. Before that, Ruud had not played any hard tournaments for a long time. The last time Casper played in mid-July at the ATP clay tournament in Switzerland, which he successfully won. In the final of the tournament , Ruud won a strong - willed victory over Italian Matteo Berrettini in three sets – 4:6; 7:6 (7:4); 6:2.
Alex is Silent
The 24-year-old representative of Slovakia, in turn, started at the tournament in Montreal the night before last. In the 1/32 finals, Molchan made a small sensation in two sets, but in a hard fight he beat Mackenzie McDonald from the USA – 7:6 (7:1); 6:4. The tennis players spent one hour and forty-five minutes on the court.
Alex Molchan and Kasper Ruud played together for the last time on April 28 at the ATP clay tournament in Munich. Then the Norwegian won a strong-willed victory in three sets – 3:6; 6:4; 6:4.
In this match, Kasper Ruud is of course considered by the bookmakers to be the undisputed favorite. At the same time, Molchan is still able to "drive" the Norwegian after such a long pause on the hard. We suggest that you bet more than 21.5 games on the total.
