Tim Smyczek vs Ramkumar Ramanathan
ATP Tennis: July 2018
The Line: Tim Smyczek -125/ Ramkumar Ramanathan +100 Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
Indian sensation Ramkumar Ramanathan has been one of the biggest prospects in the tennis world. The 23-year-old is attempting to break into the top 100 and by doing so will become one of the few Indians to achieve that feat. He has furthered his cause by making it to the semi-finals of the Hall of Fame Tennis Championship in the United States. He will play his semi-final match against American, Tim Smyczek. Both players will be hopeful of winning this match so I am expecting a great contest.
Tim Smyczek has had a good tournament with his notable win coming against Australian, Matt Ebden, in the second round. At the age of 30, Tim Smyczek has been on the circuit for many years but has never established himself as a top player. This will be one of the best chances the American will have of winning an ATP event and I am expecting the player to know this. Expect Tim Smyczek to play this match like the most important match of his life.

On the other side of the court, Ramkumar Ramanathan will also be desperate to win. This is the first time the Indian has made it to the semi-finals of an ATP event and he will know that a win will be big for his career. Ramkumar Ramanathan has looked very solid all tournament and this can be seen by the fact that he has only lost one set all tournament. This will be a big test for the Indian because he is playing a local player and the crowd will be against him. That being said, I think Ramkumar Ramanathan is good enough to shut the crowd out and get a win.
To sum up, I am predicting that Ramkumar Ramanathan wins this match. The Indian is looking very good and I don’t see him losing. We are getting a great price to wager on Ramkumar Ramanathan so that is the wager which I am going to suggest we make.
