Tennis Betting Preview for 2021 Mallorca Championships & 2021 Viking International Eastbourne
2021 Mallorca Championships
- When: 19-26 June
- Where: Santa Ponsa Tennis Academy in Santa Ponsa, Spain
Mallorca Championships to Feature Two Top Five ATP Players
The inaugural 2021 Mallorca Championship is an outdoor grass-court tennis tournament and a part of their ATP Tour 250 series of the 2021 ATP Tour. The contest will run from June 19-26, featuring some of the world’s best men’s tennis players.
It will mark the first grass-court ATP tournament in Spain and the first time a tour will travel to Mallorca since 2002.
The tournament will welcome the likes of Daniil Medvedev, Dominic Thiem, and the reigning French Open champions Novak Djokovic, who will duke it out for the lion’s share of the €720,000 prize pool. Medvedev and Thiem are two of the highest-seeded singles players, while Djokovic is set to compete in doubles with Carlos Gómez-Herrera, who has previously played alongside Novak’s younger brother Marko.
With Djokovic not attending the singles tournament, the focus will shift towards Medvedev as the main favorite to claim the gold. He received a direct bye into the second round and could face fifth seed Dane Casper Ruud in the quarter-finals, as the Dane opens the tournament against Gilles Simon.
Medvedev has won 10 ATP Tour titles in his career, although not a single one on grass, where he holds a 28-15 career record. His best attempt to win on grass came in 2019 when he made it to the semi-finals at the Cinc Championships.
If the Russian slips again, the second-seeded Dominic Thiem would take over as the player to watch. He has 17 ATP Titles, including the 2020 US Open and 2016 MercedesCup, where he won his first title on grass.
Viking Eastbourne International 2021
- When: 21-26 June
- Where: Devonshire Park LTC in Eastbourne, United Kingdom
Plenty of Action in Eastbourne
The Viking Eastbourne International 2021 will feature both men’s and women’s competitions as a part of the WTA 500 and ATP 250 series on the men’s side. The WTA draw will include 32 players, while the ATP will feature 28.
Although a reasonably sizable draw, there are a few names that stand out as the main favorites, both due to the quality of the players and their previous success on Eastbourne’s grass courts.
On the women’s side, eight seeds are all ranked inside the top-20, which includes five of the top-10. The name to watch in Eastbourne is Aryna Sabalenka as world no.4. Yet, you can’t look past Bianca Andreescu, Elina Svitolina Iga Swiatek, and Karolina Pliskova as the names that round up the top-five seeds.
While a relatively stacked field, most of the attention will be pointed towards a 17-year-old sensation Coco Gauff, who has been phenomenal on grass and could make a surprise run. Given her form, it wouldn’t be too surprising to see Gauff lift the trophy this week.
We will see five of the top-30 players on the men’s side, including world no.16 Gaël Monfils as the top-seeded player. Joining him are Alex De Minaur, Aslan Karatsev, Lorenzo Sonego, Nikoloz Basliashvili, Reilly Opelka, and Albert Ramos-Vinolas.
Marin Cilic, Taylor Fritz, Aslan Karatsev, Filip Krajinovic, Benoit Paire, and Stan Wawrinka were all supposed to enter the tournament but withdrew.
Taking over as their replacements are Vasek Pospisil, Yoshihito Nishioka, Emil Ruusuvuori, Egor Gerasimov, Alexei Popyrin, Aljaž Bedene.
De Minaur is our pick for the player to watch at the Viking Eastbourne International 2021. He has a solid grass court game and an amazing touch that could take him far in this tournament.
His road to the finals doesn’t seem too difficult, and while he is likely to meet with Albert Ramos-Vinolas as the final obstacle ahead of his second career title, the 22-year-old should have the edge over the 11-year older Spaniard.
