Tennis Betting Marcos Baghdatis v Michael Berrer

dubai-barclays-tennis-championship-2010Barclays Dubai Tennis Championships quarter final match to be played 16:15 GMT Thursday February 25. The Match between the Cypriot currently ranked 37 in the world and the German currently ranked 56 in the world seems on the surface to become a close encounter. However this match might very well be decided by the fact which of the two players can come up with the most consistent first serve today.

Great serving from Michael Berrer

In that regards Michael Berrer have been serving very well in his last many matches and should be seen as the favorite to advance to the Semi Finals where he will face the winner of the in form Celic v Melzer match. Baghdatis is back from injury after a successful Australian visit winning the Medibank International Sydney Championship beating Mardy Fish in an epic semifinal. Baghdatis had to withdraw from Australia Open in third round match versus Leyton Hewitt and have since then played in Rotterdam (lost to Davydenko) and Marseille (lost to Michael Lhodra) both times in straight sets.

Berrer recently found himself in the Zagreb final losing to two times winner Marin Cilic (2-1) followed by a win over French Arnaud Clement in Rotterdam before losing in the second round to in form French Julien Benneteau. Berrer currently trade above even which is a reflection of the world rankings and not the actual strength between the two players at current point in time. Backing Berrer at Betfair is a solid betting option as he will win at least one set in which case the current odds of 2.86 will drop below 1.75 if he wins the first set and in the area of evens if he is winning the second set.

Betting suggestion:

Back Michael Berrer at Betfair to odds 2.86 which is the best available in the market right now. The match can be followed on Live Video directly from the Betfair homepage.
