ATP Rio Preview – Navone vs Fonseca

Posted on

This one is starting shortly, however as good as the 17 year old Brazilian has looked this week in front of the home crowd, I’m not entirely sure his overall body of work justifies near coin flip odds here against Mariano Navone.

Yes, a win over Fils and then Garin is solid, however considering the form of both players, is it really the strongest of formlines to consider here? Navone’s form dating back to Santa Cruz in September is incredibly solid, and his only loss in the last fortnight came to the eventual champ in Darderi.

Starts soon, and as high as I am on Fonseca as a prospect moving forward, his odds look too short for this particular matchup, even with the home crowd.

Suggested Bet:
1 unit Navone to defeat Fonseca at $1.91 at Topsport/Bet365 ($1.92 Unibet / small volume available $1.95 at Betfair minus commission)

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.
