Juan Ignacio Londero vs Dutra Silva (By: Iniestaone)
Qualifier final for ATP Rio between Londero (#69) and Dutra Silva (#138)
I am backing Londero to take another win by at least three games. He defeated Giannessi in the qualifying semis 7-6 6-1, he went through the match unbroken despite not having his best day on serve as he had 52% on his first serve but still managed to not give Giannessi a single breakpoint during the match.
Dutra Silva is having a great season so far but I can't see him do anything to the Londero we are seeing now. He was a big favorite vs Donati in the qual semis but still lost a set, Rio is for whatever reason not a good place for him as he has been here 4 times before this year and two times he dropped out of the qualifiers and the last two times he was knocked out in the first round after not having to qualify.
Giannessi had beaten Londero last year and lost to him this year. Dutra Silva has beaten him 3 times (2014, 2017 and 2018) but all matches have been close, the last one ending 6-7 4-6 and Dutra Silva is a 10 years older (35) veteran who is now playing Londero at his absolute best. I can't see Dutra Silva winning many rallies past the first few games, Londero is just that good from the baseline that Dutra Silva will struggle to keep up. I think we will see a similar match as the one vs Giannessi and a win by a margin of at least 3 games. Odds for a Londero win outright were released as low as 1.30-something but have been going up to the 1.50-s the last few hours, I think thats a decent bet as well
