ATP Bastad Winner Outright Tips: Fellow Scandinavians to Go Deep in Sweden  

ATP Bastad Winner Outright Tips

Key Stat: Casper Ruud has been sensational on clay this year

Tip Reasoning

  • The Norwegian has played the semifinal in Rome , the final at Roland Garros, and he has won the title in Geneva
  • Ruud also won Bastad last year
  • He is the top seed this year

Casper Ruud returns on clay for the first time after playing the Roland Garros final as he will defend his title this week in Bastad. The Norwegian has finally had the long-awaited breakthrough this season during the claycourt campaign as he managed some fantastic results on the dirt in May, including the semifinal of Rome, the title in Geneva, and the final at French Open.

Ruud will face some stiff competition this week in Sweden, but he is deservedly the main contender for the title, having won the tournament last year. The Norwegian did not have the best run on grass which is his least favorite surface by a mile. He will feel much more comfortable on the return to clay where he proved to have what it takes to compete with the very best players in the world in spring. We will go with Ruud to win the title in Bastad at the +160 odds.

Tip Reasoning

Key Stat: Holger Rune has been fantastic on clay this year

  • The talented Dane won his maiden ATP trophy in Munich earlier this year
  • He eliminated Shapovalov and Tsitsipas at Roland Garros this season
  • He can beat anyone on his day on clay

Much like Ruud, his fellow Scandinavian Holger Rune has completely opposite faces on clay and on grass. The Dane enjoyed his breakthrough campaign this spring on the dirt where he won his inaugural ATP title by beating Botic Van De Zandschulp in the final. He has eliminated Sascha Zverev on the way to the trophy. Rune has also been great at French Open where he made it to the quarterfinal before being stopped by Casper Ruud. The Dane has eliminated the likes of Denis Shapovalov and Stefanos Tsitsipas along the way. We certainly see the Dane as the dark horse here at the +1300 odds.
