2021 Argentina Open Betting Predictions
No. 1 Diego Schwartzman Vs Lucas Klein
22-year-old Slovakian Lucas Klein dispatched Ernesto Escobedo 6-2, 6-3 on Monday. Klein is ranked 291st in the world rankings. Klein did win the doubles title at the Cherbourg Challenger event in France last month. 28-year-old world No. 9 Diego Schwartzman has gotten off to a modest 4-3 start. He split two matches in the season-opening ATP Cup before winning two matches at the Australian Open before bowing out to an incendiary Aslan Karatsev. Schwartzman should be hungry after getting unexpectedly knocked out in the second round at Cordoba last week against world No. 47 Albert Ramos-Vinolas.
Prediction: While these two players have never met before, I don’t think there’s any way Diego Schwartzman fails to win this match. The diminutive star is probably semi-desperate to pick up the level of his play and this is match he just can’t afford to lose. Lucas Klein is the far lesser player in this affair. Schwartzman gets it done in straight sets.
Pick: Diego Schwartzman in Straight Sets
Miomir Kecmanovic Vs Thiago Monteiro
Serbian Miomir Kecmanovic is ranked an impressive 42nd in the ATP rankings. The 21-year-old is off to an uneven start in 2021, having gone 3-4 in seven matches. the 6’0″ Kecmanovic reached the second round in Australia but lost his opener 7-6, 5-7, 2-6 at Cordoba last week against Juan Manuel Cerundolo.
26-year-old Thiago Monteiro ranks 74th in the world. The 6′ 0″ Brazilian has gotten off to a nice 8-4 start coming into this affair. Monteiro reached the second round at Delray Beach and followed that up with a nice run to the semis at Melbourne 1. Monteiro then reached the second round in Australia and the quarterfinals in Cordoba last week.
Prediction: While these two have never met before, my money is on Thiago Monteiro. The Brazilian might be the lower ranked player in this affair, but he’s been the far better player this season. Both of these guys are the same height and possess the same amount of power. Keep it simple and go with the guy that has looked like the far better player this season. Thiago Monteiro.
Pick: Thiago Monteiro in 3 Sets
Pablo Andujar Vs Gianluca Mager
Pablo Andujar is 57th in the world rankings. The 35-year-old Spaniard is off to an uninspiring 1-3 start this season. Andujar won his opener in Australia but bowed out in the second round against Filip Krajinovic in four sets. Andújar rebounded in his Argentina opener, beating Juan Ignacio Londero 6-3, 6-0 on Monday.
26-year-old Gianluca Mager is 101st in the world rankings. The 6’2″ Italian has gone 2-4 in six matches coming into this affair. Mager lost his opener at Melbourne 1, the Australian Open and last week at Cordoba.
Prediction: This pick amounts to a selection for the lesser of two evils. Pablo Andujar isn’t setting the place on fire, but Gianluca Mager has been completely and utterly awful in his last three matches. While Mager is 1-0 in head-to-head matches against Andujar, that match went the distance. This time around, Andujar extracts some revenge against the struggling Italian.
Pick: Pablo Andujar in 3 Sets
Sumit Nagal Vs Cristian Garin
Not to be confused with Rafael Nadal, world No. 150 Sumit Nagal was off to an 0-2 start this season before getting past Nicolas Kicker in his Argentina opener on Monday.
If you didn’t know, the 24-year-old Garin is ranked a stellar 22nd in the ATP rankings. Garin lost his opening round match at Delray Beach against Christian Harrison to open the 2021 season. Garin sat out the Australian Open with a wrist injury, so he should be seriously motivated in this match.
Prediction: Sumit Nagal got a very nice win on Monday, but this is where the party comes to a crashing halt for him. Cristian is by far, the more accomplished player with bigger and more dangerous weapons. Garin looks poised to make a deep run that challenges for the outright win in Argentina. Garin cruises in this one.
Pick: Cristian Garin in Straight Sets
