The Line: Roberto Bautista Agut -200/ Matteo Berrettini +162 Over/Under:
The Swiss Open has reached the final as Italian Matteo Berrettini and Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut play each other. Both players are hours away from glory so this will be a very important match for everyone involved with this match. It is going to be important that the players involved are focused and not affected by the pressure of the big stage since the stakes are high. Either way, we should expect a great tennis match.
Roberto Bautista Agut is the second seed for this tournament and he has lived up to his high ranking. The player from Spain has been convincing and although only one of his victories was in straight sets, he has never looked out of control. Roberto Bautista Agut has been in this situation before as this is his 15th ATP final. The Spanish superstar has already won 8 ATP singles titles so I am expecting Roberto Bautista Agut to feel no pressure. It is clear that the number 2 seed will be the favorite for this match and it will be interesting to see if he can live up to that expectation.
On the other side of the coin, Matteo Berrettini will be playing his first ATP final. The Italian is only 22 years of age and will hope to make history for himself. It has been a very good tournament for Matteo Berrettini as he has not lost a set in the entire tournament. The Italian has been in superb form and will feel that he is playing the best tennis of his career so far. It is going to be a tough match for the young talent since he is facing a player full of talent and experience. Matteo Berrettini will need to put aside the pressures of the occasion if he is to win.
While Matteo Berrettini has been very impressive, I am going to predict that Roberto Bautista Agut will win this match. The Spaniard is talented and has been in this situation many times before. I think the experience that Roberto Bautista Agut has will be the deciding factor for this match.
