ATP Antalya has reached the semi-final stages as Czech tennis player Jiri Vesely takes the second seed for this competition, Damir Džumhur. This is a big game for both players since it will give them a chance of winning an ATP title.

Damir Džumhur is currently the top seed in Bosnia and will look to show that in this game. 2018 has been a good year for the Bosnian as he has made deep runs in many tournaments including a round of 32 finish in the French Open a few weeks ago. At the age of 26, Damir Džumhur seems to be growing in stature and this is another chance for him to do well.

On the other side of the coin, Jiri Vesely will look to cause a major upset. The young Czech player has far exceeded his expectations and now he has a real chance of winning this event. On his road to the semi-finals, Jiri Vesely beat Spanish superstar Fernando Verdasco. That win would have given him tons of confidence which he will look to use in this game. It will not be easy for Vesely in this game since there is great pressure surrounding this fixture and it is unlikely the youngster is used to this atmosphere.

Taking everything into consideration, I am going to make my prediction which is that Damir Džumhur will win this match. The Bosnian is the better player and is used to playing in big games. While Jiri Vesely has been very impressive, I think this is where his journey will end. As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a great price to wager on Damir Džumhur to win this game outright and as a result, this is the bet which I am going to suggest that we make.
