Player to watch: Alexander Shevchenko

by Jonas Eriksson

Alexander Shevchenko is in his first ATP final in Moselle, France. At 22 years old, he is now in the top 50 players in the ATP rankings.

Can Shevchenko go all the way in Moselle and capture his first ATP title? The bookies at William Hill pick his opponent, Ugo Humbert, as the favorite. Shevchenko gives you 3.10 times your bet at the time of writing. If you are curious about live tennis betting, check out our other articles.

Shevchenko has been fired up all tournament and has shown a cunning mix of creativity and shotmaking. However, he will play against an in-form local favorite in Humbert, who already has the experience of winning ATP titles (he has three to his name at the time of writing). Can the young Russian overcome the odds?

The TN Prediction is that Humbert wins in three sets.

But no matter what, Shevchenko will be a player to watch in the future. With the experienced Gunter Bresnik (Dominic Thiem’s ex-coach) in his box and excellent all-court abilities, he should be a threat as a his game progresses.
