ATP Halle Tennis Handicap Betting Preview – Sat 18th June by @DavAulak

Roger Federer v Alexander Zverev

He hasn’t been at his best this week but Roger Federer is into another Semi Final in Halle and all this tennis has to be preparing him effectively for Wimbledon. He will want to go on and win the title here but this might be the first of a couple of youngsters that Federer will have to beat to do that.

The match with Alexander Zverev bridges the last generation with the next one upcoming and it looks a very interesting Semi Final. The home player served very well in his win over Marcos Baghdatis but I am still not convinced he is the most comfortable on a grass court and I will look for Federer to perhaps expose that.

The backhand slice is going to be an important shot for Federer who has to serve better than he did in his win over David Goffin if he is going to win this one. His movement has perhaps not been in top form either while Federer can’t afford to allow too many returns of serve to fail to get Zverev to play.

I think he is the superior grass court player though and Federer can come through with a 76, 63 win to compete for another title in Halle.

David Ferrer v Andreas Seppi

Last week might have been a disappointment for David Ferrer as he was beaten in the Quarter Final in Hertogenbosch. The Spaniard has fallen to the World Number 14 spot in the Rankings and it is beginning to feel like his best days are behind more and more.

In saying that, I think Ferrer will be very comfortable with his First Round match in Halle as he takes on Andreas Seppi who he has beaten nine times, every time they have played on the main Tour. Seppi has had some good results on the grass and he did reach the Final in Halle last year, but the Italian has suffered some poor form through 2016.

Seppi has only won one set against Ferrer in the past and his game does match up well for Ferrer. Without a really big serve, Seppi is forced to work around the court against Ferrer and usually I would say the latter is going to win the extended rallies more often than not, even if he is not at his best at the moment.

Being at his best might not matter and I think Ferrer is able to come through with a 64, 64 win and move into the Second Round.
