Western & Southern Open Semi finals Prediction. Today is semi final day in Cincinnati, Oh, USA in the 2018 Masters 1000 Western & Southern Open. 20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer and 13-time GS winner Novak Djokovic is playing for yet another big final. LeoVegas has the best odds for the semi finals.
World number one Rafael Nadal pulled out from this years Western & Southern open after he won his record 33rd Masters 1000 title in the Rogers Cup in Toronto. Nadal wanted to rest and prepare for the US Open where he is looking for his 18th Grand Slam.
Roger Federer is facing Belgium´s David Goffin and Djokovic is facing Croat Marin Cilic today. Federer is 6-1 against Goffin and Djokovic is 14-2 against Cilic so the best bets are Federer vs Djokovic in the final tomorrow. Djokovic is first up today scheduled to start his match against Cilic 14.00 local time and Federer v Goffin is scheduled for 19.00.
Western & Southern Open Semi finals Prediction
(10) NOVAK DJOKOVIC – (7) MARIN CILIC
Djokovic is 14-2 against Cilic but Cilic won the last two meetings, 2016 in Paris Indoors 6-4, 7-6 and this year at Queens Club in the final after saving match point 5-7, 7-6, 6-3. Before these wins for Cilic the former world number one Djokovic won 14 straight meetings, often very easy. Djokovic won his 13th Grand Slam this summer at Wimbledon and is back close to his best. However he isn´t at the same level of tennis he displayed during 2015-2016 when he won 4 straight Grand Slams and 5 out of 6 slams. This means Cilic has a chance today but my bet is on Djokovic. Djokovic is also chasing history this week. If he wins the title in Cincinnati he becomes the first player to win all 9 Masters 1000 tournaments.
BEST BET: NOVAK DJOKOVIC WINNER – 1.48 at LeoVegas (2.65 on Cilic as the winner)
(2) ROGER FEDERER – (11) DAVID GOFFIN
Federer is 6-1 against Goffin and the 7-time Cincinnati Champion is of course the favorite to win. Goffin did play great against Anderson in the quarters and won the last meeting with Federer in London 2017 but Federer wont miss this opportunity to get to another big final.
BEST BET: ROGER FEDERER WINNER – 1.23 at LeoVegas (4.25 on Goffin as the winner)
