2020 European Open Pick

Lastly, the ATP Tour odds favor Pablo Carreno Busta to win the European Tour. It is due to his recent performances in the French Open and the US Open. A big challenge that will stand in his way comes from hometown favorite David Goffin. This competitor is out to claim the title in his homeland. It will be interesting on who emerges on top without any Top 10 netters. Someone will claim the title like former champion Richard Gasquet and 2016 Wimbledon finalist Milos Raonic.
