9-6 on tennis up 2.43 units
Milos Raonic ML at -280 for 4 units. Canadian battle here. Raonic beat third seed Grigor Dimitrov 7-5, 3-6, 6-3 in the last round behind 12 aces. Raonic hadn’t beat Dimitrov since 2011 so I was surprised by that result. Raonic looked a lot better than I suspected coming off his most recent knee injury. Shapovalov is the younger Canadian, but he models his game more after Nadal (both left handed) than he does Raonic. Milos has the advantage at the net, on the serve, and with forehand volleys in my opinion. Shapovalov does have some speed and exciting groundstrokes, but I do not think it will be enough here.
Raonic – Shapovalov under 23 for 2 units. I just think Milos wins in straight sets because of everything I mentioned above and he has more experience.
Del Potro ML at -395 for 2 units. Just going to keep riding Del Potro. I think Del Potro is the 3rd best player in the world at the moment. Lajovic has impressed me in Madrid, but not enough to think he will beat an opponent of this quality.
