Canadian tennis superstar Milos Raonic will be back in action this week after pulling out of the French Open due to injury. The Canadian will be determined to get some wins and some playing time and this tournament will be a great chance for him to do that. His first game will be in the round of 32 as he takes on Bosnian player Mirza Basic.
Mirza Basic had a poor French Open losing his first-round game. While not much was expected from the Bosnian tennis player, he would have expected better. This will be another chance for him to get a big result since a win over Milos Raonic will be massive for his confidence. It will be important that Mirza Basic manages to limit Raonic’s serving game since if he can’t do that, this game will be over very quickly.
On the other side of the court, Milos Raonic will look to win this game quickly. The Canadian has had injury issues and will not look to spend too much extra time on the court this early in a tournament. Raonic has one of the best serves in world tennis and if he is on form, he could end this match quickly.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to predict that Milos Raonic wins this game and wins it easily. The Canadian is the better player and I don’t think he will be challenged in this game. Unfortunately, we are not getting the right price to wager on Raonic winning outright and as a result, we should avoid that bet. The best bet in the under 2.5 sets and I think that it wins easily since Milos Raonic should not lose a set to Mirza Basic.
