The american Rajeev Ram will have to prove to the tennis community that he isnt on the decline from his previously strong start to this year when he faces off against Mischa Zverev in Kuala Lumpur for the ATP Tour on the 30th of september at 07:00 (gmt+1). Zverev has been showing an amazing shape as of late and it´s up to Rajeev to show that he´s up for the challenge. The last time that the two faced off against each other Rajeev was the favourite and now as the tides have turned in the eyes of the bookmakers; will Rajeev stand against the pressure and advance in the Kuala Lumpur tour or will he fall short to the german?
Rajeev Ram who is currently ranked 93rd will be coming into this game with 4 losses and 1 victory in his latest 5 games, with all of the games being versus strong opponents such as Dustin Brown, Viktor Troicki and Jeremy Chardy. 3 out of 5 of his latest games has gone to 3 sets and has featured over 26 games.
Mischa Zverev who currently has a modest ranking at 248th has shown great shape in his latest games with 4 victories and 1 defeat. The defeat that he suffered was versus the ranked 16th player Jo-Wilfried Tsonga whom has proven to be able to compete with the absolute top players in the world, a game that ended 7-6(5) 6-7(8) 6-3 in favor of Tsonga.
The vikings prediction for this matchup is a 2-1 victory for Rajeev Ram, the viking belives that there is a lot of value in Rajeev for this game as a lot of the value has been misplaced in shape rather than player quality and experience. The last time these two players faced off ended in a 6-4 7-6(5) victory for Zverev back in 2012, Rajeev will have to be on top of his game to avoid history of repeating itself. The viking believes that this game should be taken with great caution even for Zverev backers, for those of you who follow our prediction; play a 1-3 unit bet on Rajeev or possibly a 0.5-1 unit bet on Rajeev to win by 2-1 and then follow the game live to look for hedging opportunities.
