ATP Stuttgart is the first of consecutive German grass court events and the first chance for most of the players to get some grass court competition under their belts before Wimbledon.
The Stuttgart Open is actually one of the oldest tournaments on the ATP calendar having been held since 1916. No records are available about who won the tournament until 1949 and actually it was a clay court event until as recently at 2014.
Since it became a grass event only Matteo Berrettini has won the event more than once. Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer have been champions here, as has former Wimbledon finalist Marin Cilic.
ATP Stuttgart Betting Tips
The American needs to start taking advantage of his natural gifts that should be suited to grass, i.e. his excellent serve and natural creativity on the court. His forehand should translate well onto the surface as well and now that he is off the clay, he can continue his positive trajectory on the quicker surfaces.
Paul has a really strong all-round game that can be of benefit to him on grass. His serve is good, though not a huge weapon, but he can play all the shots and deal with a low bounce well. His draw is a really inviting one as well.
