Tennis Tips and Predictions: ATP Astana

News Content

Summary

Switching to the more indoor vibe, the ATP Astana Open will feature a hefty set of top ten players who will all be duking it out against the rest to make a run at a big ATP title to start the indoor season off.

The field features five top ten players, and nine top twenty entrants. The tournament is stacked from top to bottom and is still in the infant stages of its overall history.

Made in 2020 to combat the COVID cancellation of many ATP tournaments, the indoor-hard Championship will be necessary to watch for tennis fanatics in its 2022 iteration.

The surface in the Kazakhstan Open will emphasize players who can play first shot tennis, and those with the bigger serves.

A lot of the conditions will be testing on those players who do not feel at home in these sorts of environments, but nevertheless, there could be room for some huge upsets this week in Astana.

One of the two major tournaments going on this week, the ATP will be looking on, to see who lifts the trophy both in Astana and Tokyo.

Two of the more well-worked tournaments during this swing, we at Stake.com will provide you the best odds and service for a great week of tennis!

Players to Watch - Astana Open

First time Back since the U.S. Open - Carlos Alcaraz - ATP #1

The Spanish teen made waves in the sports world after taking home his first ever grand slam as a mere teenager in September.

The hard courts were not his favourite growing up, but Carlos Alcaraz has found a healthy balance between ball-bashing and creating chances with his defence.

Helped along well by one of the greats, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Carlos Alcaraz now holds the position of number one in the ATP rankings.

His game speaks much more loudly than any of his words, and he will be keen on adding another ATP title to his already large trophy cabinet, in Kazakhstan this week.

Alcaraz has a ton of ready and able opponents to conquer in this particular draw, so expect there to be some real tests, especially on the indoor hard surface for Carlitos.

Finding his Form Again - Novak Djokovic - ATP #7

The Serbian legend, Novak Djokovic, is finally playing competitive tennis again after a long layover that saw many fans reap disappointment with the ATP and Grand slam council.

Alas, one of the GOATs of the sport has reclaimed his scary presence within the tour.

Winning ATP Tel Aviv in Israel last week, Djokovic has gotten significant reps on the indoor surface not only this past week, but in his career as well.

Known as one of the most successful indoor players of all time, Djokovic will be a firm favorite heading into this week at Astana.

If he is well-rested and keeps his body in-check, there is a high chance we see the Serbian lifting the trophy on Sunday.

Hasn’t Been the Same - Daniil Medvedev - ATP #4

Russian #1, Daniil Medvedev is wondering where his spectacular level of play has gone in the latter half of 2022.

The former USO champion was set to take over their old guard and make the tour realize his power after such an amazing 2021.

His abilities on the hard court are second to none and there was hardly anyone stepping to his level at his peak.

However, in 2022, Medvedev has not shown the same level of tennis consistently.

There has been a clear divide in his level and many fans are baffled to see his dip in play.

Medvedev will be looking to clear his mind and make things right in Astana this week, and with such a stacked field, he cannot afford to miss a beat.
