Del Bonis vs Outright Winner by Tennisguy
This is the Munich ATP tournament and I believe that Delbonis will be the one to win the title here. He isn't even a seeded player but by the way the bookmakers offer the odds he is the 4th. In my opinion the ones who could trouble him in this tournament are either Fognini in an eventual quarterfinal match or Haas in and eventual final. Other than that I think he should be considered favorite in almost every match he has.
Fognini is really struggling with his game at the moment do to some injury problems. He even retired from last week's tournament after being 6-0 and 4-0 down to Giraldo. I don't think he will come back at 100% in this tournament so I don't really see him as the favorite in this tournament. Also if he is injured he will probably not want to risk a lot as the French Open is getting close now.
Haas is last year's winner here in Munich but he hasn't had the best start to the year in 2014. Actually it needs to be mentioned that he hasn't played a singles match for more than a month. Though I am sure he will be motivated by the crowd's support I don't know how well prepared he will be for this tournament. His half of the table is not that hard but there are some players that could give him problems and even beat him if he is not in top form, like for example Seppi, Ramos or even Istomin.
Delbonis already played a match here in the first round against Nikolay Davydenko and won 6-2, 7-6(4). He didn't offer the russian any break point opportunities and really played some aggressive tennis which didn't give his opponent any chances. Now he plays in the second round against Thomaz Bellucci against who he leads 3-0 in the direct meetings, all of them taking part on clay. Therefore I think he can advance to the quarterfinals where most likely he will face Fognini. The h2h stats between Fognini and Delbonis is 1-1 and considering Fognini will probably not be at his best I think Delbonis will have the advantage in that match if it is to go that way.
With the exception of Fognini, on this side of the table there isn't anyone that I would see winning against Delbonis. If he manages to get to the semis he will face one of these players : Struff, Melzer or Berankis and I really can't see anyone of these players giving him a lot of problems.
Overall there is very good value in backing Delbonis to win this title and if he plays with the same intensity that he did in the first round I believe he is going to do it.
