Nitto ATP World Tour Finals 2023 – Day 3 Tips and Betting Preview

We move into the second set of group matches at the Nitto ATP World Tour Finals on Tuesday and it is the turn of the two Green Groups to take to the court again for what should be another fabulous day of tennis.

The winners from Sunday face each other on Tuesday while the losers also meet as we set up what is looking like being a fascinating finale to these groups on Thursday. Novak Djokovic and Jannik Sinner are among the stars on show.

Day Session

Santiago Gonzalez & Edouard Roger-Vasselin vs Maximo Gonzalez & Andres Molteni

The opening doubles match of the day sees the two losing pairs from Sunday going at it with their tournament life likely to be on the line as Santiago Gonzalez and Eduoard Roger-Vasselin go up against the Argentine pair of Maximo Gonzalez and Andres Molteni.

Gonzalez and Molteni were well beaten in their opening match but they did at least lose to the number one seeds who are likely to sweep the group so all isn’t lost for them but the margin of their defeat means they probably need to win this in straight sets so the pressure is very much on them. Santiago Gonzalez and Roger-Vasselin have a little more wiggle room as they took a set in their loss in the opening match but they have the number one seeds to come so a win here is imperative for them. I would favour the higher ranked team here but they are plenty short enough so I’m happy to let them win if they are good enough.

Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Holger Rune

The singles match in the day session sees the two losing players from Sunday back in action as the Greek star Stefanos Tsitsipas looks for a first career win over Holger Rune in a match that neither can afford to lose.

Tsitsipas lost quite tamely to Jannik Sinner in his opening match which means he is going to have to win this one if he is going to stay in the tournament but I think he is going to have his work cut out because there was a lot to like about the Rune performance in defeat to Novak Djokovic on Sunday. A couple of points here or there going the other way and the Dane would have won that match but he goes into this one with a 2-0 head to head lead over Tsitsipas and there was so much more energy in the Rune display in that opening game that I think he levels his ledger here. There were injury concerns over Tsitsipas going into the tournament and they certainly didn’t disappear after that opening game. I liked what I saw from Rune in that match and I think he wins this with a bit in hand.

Night Session

Ivan Dodig & Austin Krajicek vs Marcel Granollers & Horacio Zeballos

The night session doubles sees the number one seeds Ivan Dodig and Austin Krajicek looking to take a huge step towards the semi-finals when they meet Marcel Granollers and Horacio Zeballos in the battle of the Sunday winners.

Dodig and Krajicek were well fancied for this tournament before a ball was hit and they laid a bit of a marker down in their opening match, although what they beat remains to be seen. I think they are going to have it much harder here but that isn’t to say that they can’t win. I liked how Granollers and Zeballos worked things out in their opening match and played well when the pressure was on from a set down. That might serve them well here and in many ways they don’t have a lot to lose in this one. I’m already on them outright so I’m more than happy to let them win without the need to get involved in this one.

Novak Djokovic vs Jannik Sinner

We save the best for last on Tuesday as the final match onto the court is the two singles winners on Sunday battle it out in the blockbuster clash of the day when the defending champion Novak Djokovic takes on the home man Jannik Sinner.

Djokovic came through an absolute epic encounter with Holger Rune on Sunday night in a match which went both ways and you get the feeling that he is going to be involved in another classic contest here. Djokovic has won all three of their meetings but we all remember their Wimbledon quarter final last year where Sinner went into a two set lead before Djokovic came back to chin him. Sinner is a much better player now though and much more suited to the hard courts so I expect him to bring a real challenge to Djokovic here but Djokovic isn’t 34-1 and already guaranteed the number one ranking at the end of the season for no reason. He isn’t getting any younger though so Sinner might be able to take advantage but this is a match I am more than happy to sit back and watch rather than fret over a bet during it.
