Andy Watson in ATP Tour 06 Nov 2023

It is the final week of the regular season on the ATP Tour. The Sofia Open in Bulgaria represents the final opportunity for many players to win a tournament and get some ranking points until 2024.

Keys To Success at ATP Sofia

As always at an indoor event, having a strong serve and clean groundstrokes are the key to success. Some experience on the European indoor circuit is another thing to look for when picking the winner here.

Past winners have either been a totally top class operators, Jannik Sinner (twice), Daniil Medvedev, and vintage Grigor Dimitrov, come from this camp. However, there has also been shots from the dark such as last year’s champion Marc-Andrea Huesler and Mirza Basic.

With the lack of depth in the tournament, Adrian Mannarino leads the market, this year’s event could be the latter.

ATP Metz Betting Tips

Pavel Kotov 1pt EW @ 12/1 with Bet365

In a tournament with no real standout players, this appeared to be a good opportunity to back one of the most in-form players. Kotov reached the final in Stockholm but has had a couple of weeks off since, so shouldn’t be fatigued from that great run. He has a great opening draw here before taking on Sebastian Baez, but the Argentine has slowed down as the season has continued.

Rinky Hijikata 0.25pt EW @ 50/1 with Bet365

The Australian seems to be a touch too big here. He walloped his opening opponent in their last head-to-head, and with the field so evenly matched, it is worth taking such a big price on a talented player.
