Aljaz Bedene vs Pablo Cuevas – Roland Garros Betting Tips

Aljaz Bedene vs Pablo Cuevas – Roland Garros : The British giant Aljaz Bedene is, above everything, a hard-court player
As we could expect from his stature, but this year, Bedene has a 67% win-rate on clay.
On the last couple of tournaments, Bedene reached the 2nd round in Monte Carlo, where he was unable to overcome the practically insuperable Rafa Nadal.
In Budapest, he surprised by reaching the semi-finals of the tournament, where he was then beaten by Millman in 3 sets.
In Istanbul, he lost on the 8th finals with Taro Daniel in 2 sets. In Rome, he has beaten Muller and K. Anderson before being defeated by Carreno-Busta in 3 sets.
The Slovenian/British Aljaz Bedene is a consistent player, who has a strong serve, with some lack of placement and that is somewhat erratic on the rallies from the baseline.
The Uruguayan Pablo Cuevas is a true clay specialist, being the number 76 in the World, and very competent in small to medium scale tournaments.
The technical and skillful Pablo Cuevas is getting more and more versatile, but it is on clay where he is most comfortable, although after 2 wins on the Davis Cup, he has been having bittersweet results on that surface.
On one hand, he reached the round of 16 at the Madrid Masters, where he was beaten by John Isner in 3 sets and 2nd round in Barcelona (where he lost to Mannarino in straight sets). On the other hand, he didn’t last long in Monte Carlo and Rome.
Pablo Cuevas is a master on the amortizes and the slices and his unusual one-handed backhand benefits him especially opening up angles, with that being an advantage particularly on clay.
Aljaz Bedene vs Pablo Cuevas – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The Slovenian/British’s style lacks sharpness and, a lot of times, “killer instinct”. He is a player with a reasonable serve, but he lacks impetus on rallies and from the baseline and that can certainly become visible on the duel against Pablo Cuevas.
Cuevas is a lot sneakier and has a lot more top spin on his game, and therefore he should dominate the rallies, and since he is also competent at the net and serves very fast, these odds end up being strange, due to the specialties of both players.
