ATP 2019 Geneva Open Betting Odds
Last year’s event saw Marton Fucsovics claim his first career ATP title after triumphing over Peter Gojowczyk in the finals. This time around Fucsovics is pegged as one of this year’s online tennis betting favorites to come out on top, unsurprisingly. Additionally two of the last four semifinalists return to try their luck as well as 4 of the last 8 quarterfinalists. Because of this there will be a handful of matchups to look forward to each day. One to name to keep in mind is Stan Wawrinka, another one of this year’s betting favorites. He’s won the tournament twice already (2017, 2016) and is poised for another dominant push.

Geneva Open Betting Predictions for Finals & Semifinals
The semifinal matchup is more than likely going to end up being a contest between No. 1 Alex Zverev against No. 4 Marton Fucsovics. Additionally, the other semifinal leg will feature a matchup between No. 2 Stan Wawrinka and Nicolas Jarry.
Although Zverev hasn’t looked that great over the last couple of months, he should have no problem steamrolling his way to the semifinals. However, the German could end up struggling against Yoshihito Nishioka in the second round. Similarly, Zverev could build some confidence early and bulldoze his way past this round.
Fucsovics is likely to have an easy road to the semifinal round as well. Nevertheless, he will be challenged on the clay by Federico Delbenois and Leonardo Mayer. But considering his impressive resume, the Hungarian should be able to coast all the way to the semis.
Similarly, Stan Wawrinka could end up facing Feliciano Lopez in the second. But even if he does, it’s unlikely that that contest will pose much of a threat. The one surprise in the above listed matchups is the unseeded Nicolas Jarry, who will have to upset No. 3 Christian Garin to get there.
The finals of this tournament will likely end up being Alex Zverev vs. Stan Wawrinka. If this is the case, mobile betting players should look forward to backing Zverev here.
