Nikoloz Basilashvili v Radu Albot: Betting Tips & Match Predictions for Rolex Paris Masters

After an inconsistent start to the season where the Georgian suffered multiple early-round exits, the season has been very consistent for Basilashvili. His year has also included a couple of victories over top 10 players like Alexander Zverev and Karen Kchachanov. He successfully defended his title at Hamburg before reaching the round of 16 at the Montreal Masters and reached the last eight at Moselle Open.

This will be the third match that Fernando Verdasco and Taylor Fritz will be playing against each other and the scoreline right now in the form of head to head is 1-1. Interestingly, both those matches came on hard court surfaces, once at Winston-Salem in 2016 where Verdasco won in three sets and the second time in Indian Wells third round last year where Fritz also needed three sets to get past the Spaniard.

Krajinovics year has had more sparkle but he is more suited to clay court tennis despite what he did in Indian Wells. Stunningly, he won five matches in those tournaments and all of them in straight sets, with wins over David Goffin and Daniil Medvedev to boot. Needing to qualify for the main draw, he then won three more matches in a row to make it to the fourth round.

The only problem with that is Albot has done even better on that surface. Expect a three-setter. A win-loss record of 20-11 is one to behold and it includes a title win at Delray Beach. Hes won just three of the previous eight matches he has played in but that shouldnt take away from his overall form this year that saw him tough a career-best of 39th in the world.

His best showing came at the Australian Open and the Miami Masters where he made the third round along with the US Open too. World number 17 Basilashvili has had a tournament win this year too but that came on clay. However, his hard court record isnt something to be scoffed at, having won 13 of the 22 matches he has played so far on the surface.
