After winning ATP Stuttgart, Roger Federer continues to rule the tennis world. The Swiss master will know challenge at the Halle Open where he will take on Slovenian player Aljaž Bedene.
Aljaž Bedene has been playing both Challenger events as well as the ATP. This season he has moved more into the ATP but has yet to play many of the top tennis players in the world. This will be one of the biggest tests that Aljaž Bedene will face in his career as he takes on the greatest man to ever play tennis. While the experience alone will be great for Aljaž Bedene, he will need to ensure that he can win his serve and keep Federer running otherwise we will see a very short match.
On the other side of the coin, Roger Federer will look to have an easy win. Following his rest during the clay seasons, Federer looks rested and fresh. He was very good at Stuttgart and he seems like he is playing at a different level from the others. I expect Roger Federer to try and end this contest quickly since he will not want to use his energy this early in the season.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to predict that Roger Federer wins this game. This should be no surprise to anybody since there is a mountain between these two players when looking at the talent. Unfortunately, we are getting a very short price on Federer so there is no point making that wager. The best bet in the under 2.5 sets which should win since Federer should never lose a set here.
