The contention for the ATP Open 13 trophy in Marseille is heading to the quarter-finals. The last eight are all hopeful to make their mark in France this season. However, the bookmakers favor in their 2021 ATP Marseille winner odds Stefanos Tsitsipas to retain the title for the third year in a row.
The Greek defending champion is hoping to become the first player to ever win three straight titles at the open 13 Provence. As for now, he is well about to get in contention at the European indoor hard-court swing to try to retain the title. His hopes for a hat-trick are also reflected at the ATP Marseille winner odds, by online sportsbooks in France.
However, Tsitsipas will be facing some top-tier players who are legitimate contenders for the title. They are Daniil Medvedev, Karen Khachanov, and Ugo Hamber. All of them are headlining their fixtures in the quarter-finals.
Tsitsipas hopes to retain the title
The second seed player is looking for his third title in a row. However, he had his tough setbacks lately. At Rotterdam, Tsitsipas reached the semi-finals but lost against Andrey Rublev. He also reached the semis in Melbourne but failed to knock off Daniil Medvedev.
So, to come back strong and ensure his 2021 run can bring great results, he needs to solidify his position as the three-time champion in Marseille. To do so, he first needs to walk through Pierre-Hugues Herbert in the quarterfinals. That will likely happen, according to online sportsbook news in France. But to win the title, a couple of tough tests will be waiting ahead. Tsitsipas has the momentum with 3.00 at Betway Sportsbook. However, it is not clear whether he will successfully keep it.
Medvedev the top challenger to Tsitsipas
The World No. 3 and the top seed in the competition Daniil Medvedev kicked off his run with a round-of-16 win over Egor Gerasimov. Right now he is about to face the 19-year-old Italian Jannik Sinner. Medvedev’s experience and talent will likely carry him to the final.
Before the Australian Open final, Medvedev was on a 20-match winning streak. He hoped to get his Grand Slam in Australia but failed to win against Djokovic. For Marseille Medvedev stands at 2.50 to capture the trophy and end Tsitsipas dominance.
Khachanov is among decent contenders
The Russian decent contender Karen Khachanov reached the quarter-final in Rotterdam only to lose against Tsitsipas. He is among great talents and he will perhaps achieve high scores in the near future. Maybe even he will start with Marseille. His ATP Marseille winner odds value at 5.00.
ATP Marseille winner odds are giving Humbert a chance
Most analysts did not expect Ugo Hubert to reach the quarterfinals. He was a big underdog in this tournament. However, here we are about to watch Humbert against Arthur Rinderknech in the quarterfinals. Should he have a solid run he may have a chance with 8.00 odds.
