ATP Manama Challenger Preview: Gunneswaran vs Erel

Posted on

Short and sweet here with this match first up on court today in Bahrain.

Whilst 2021 hasn’t quite gone to plan for Prajnesh Gunneswaran, I do see him presenting as value to win in straight sets against the 537th ranked wildcard in Yanki Erel. Erel has put together some solid results on the ITF tour in recent months, however Gunneswaran is the highest ranked opponent he will have ever faced on hardcourts. With Erel switching back to the hardcourt from a week of tennis on the clay in Antalya last week, it’ll be interesting to see how he starts here as a wildcard.

Gunneswaran has been poor in 2021, however has the proven track record at Challenger Level. I don’t get involved in -4.5 game handicaps in best of 3 set tennis, however I do like the 2-0 set betting here for the Indian. Just a 1 unit selection here.

Suggested Bet

1 unit Gunneswaran 2-0 set betting vs Erel at $1.83 at Bet365

Over 18s Only (21+ in some jurisdictions). 1 unit = 1% of bankroll. These are my bets that I am making. Please enjoy your betting responsibly. Never bet more than you can afford to lose, and do not chase a loss.
