Tennis Picks July 25th

The first day of a new weeks tennis are always less busy, outside of the Masters and Grand Slam events, than the other days and today is going to be no different.

The matches being played today are fairly closely contested and the only pick I am going to make is below:

Somdev Devvarman vs Ryan Sweeting: These two players meet again for the 2nd week in a row and I am going to take the Indian player to confirm the form by beating Ryan Sweeting again. Somdev Devvarman has a 2-1 head to head record, winning the last 2 matches they have played.

Devvarman has a good record on hard courts, and has already performed well in North America in tournaments at Indian Wells and Miami. His played well in Atlanta last week when reaching the Quarter Final before losing to eventual winner Mardy Fish.

Ryan Sweeting played well at Delray Beach and in Miami earlier this year, but he has had early exits in other tournaments to leave him at 5-5 on the hard courts this season. He also reached the second Round here last season, but will need to serve better than when he was beaten by Devvarman last week.

It was a close match last week between the two players, with Devvarman winning just 4 points more in the 3 set win. The fact that Devvarman has won the last 2 matches may just give him the edge to get through another close contest here.

MY PICKS: Somdev Devvarman @ 1.85 Pinnacle (2 Units)
