Tennis | Fernando Verdasco vs Pablo Carreño Busta
Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Pablo Carreño Busta has established himself as one of the best players in Spain. The world number 13 is now the second highest ranked Spanish player after Rafael Nadal and is looking like a real threat to break into the top 10. He has made it to the quarterfinals at the ATP Swedish Open where he will take on fellow Spanish player, Fernando Verdasco. Fernando Verdasco is the 5th seed for this tournament while Pablo Carreño Busta is the 2nd seed for this tournament so we should see a great game of tennis between two top players.

Fernando Verdasco had a very poor Wimbledon campaign as he was eliminated in the first round in both the singles event and the doubles event. The Spaniard will be determined to redeem himself and winning this tournament will be his goal. Verdasco has been playing elite tennis for a long time and he will know how to bounce back after losses so I am expecting the former world number 7 to show his class in this tennis match.

On the other side of the court, Pablo Carreño Busta will feel that he is expected to win this tournament. Pablo Carreño Busta also had a very poor Wimbledon campaign as he was also eliminated in the first round. The loses were wost for Pablo Carreño Busta since he is at the peak of his career. At the age of 27, Busta has enough experience which needs to show to bounce back and win this match.

While Verdasco was once a top player, he is not at that level anymore and I think that he will struggle to beat Pablo Carreño Busta. Pablo Carreño Busta is playing his best tennis and although he failed at Wimbledon, he should be good enough to bounce back and win this match. We are getting a great price to bet on the second seed to win and as a result, it is the bet which I am going to suggest. I also think that we should bet on the under 2.5 sets since I don’t see Pablo Carreño Busta losing a set to an aging Fernando Verdasco.
