Seppi vs De Minaur
Final match from Sydney between Seppi (#37) and De Minaur (#29)
This is of course a bet I would never have taken if it were a first round match but considering the circumstances I think Seppi should be a smaller underdog, perhaps something like 2.65.
Seppi defeated Schwartzman 7-6 6-4 in the semi finals as a 2.75 underdog and he then had a whole day to rest while De Minaur won vs Simon in his semi final a few hours ago and in another few hours he has to play the final match. I think it'll have an impact and Seppi will clearly beneft from the extra rest.
De Minaur has been more impressive on his way to the finals looking at the set stats as he has won all four matches in straights but Seppi has faced harder opposition and still managed to grind through. Like vs Simon, we'll see plenty of baseline duels which Seppi has shown to be very good at on these Sydney courts.
Seppi defeated De Minaur last year in the semi finals in Monaco in two sets.
