This is an interesting quarter-final match up in Rotterdam for Friday. Aljaz Bedene pulled off a huge shock in the previous round in knocking out second seed Stefanos Tsitsipas. Can he pull off another? He takes on Next Gen star Felix Auger-Aliassime for a place in the final four.

Auger-Aliassime to reach the final four

Young Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime has made some pretty solid strides in this Rotterdam event. He did need three sets to get through his opener against German Jan-Lennard Struff.

But then against a much tougher opponent in the second round, Auger-Aliassime was much improved. He took a straight-sets win over Grigor Dimitrov to move through to the final eight of the tournament.

Our betting prediction:
Auger-Aliassime -3.5 Handicap
7/5

The exciting 19-year-old has big things ahead of him. This is the first time in 2020 that he has really gotten going. He lost his third match at the Adelaide International earlier this year, before suffering a first-round exit in the Australian Open.

Auger-Aliassime then bowed out in the second round of the Open Sud de France last week. So he does need some momentum but he was right on top of his game against Dimitrov which may be a big indication that he is just finding his feet for the new year.

 

Impressive stuff so far from Bedene

This will be the first-ever meeting between Felix Auger-Aliasime and Aljaz Bedene. Bedene, who was representing Great Britain for a while, but then returned to represent Slovenia, is ranked 52 in the world.

That is a long way from the ranking of 21 that his opponent is at. There has not been much form from him this season either. He got a couple of match wins under his belt in his season opener in Qatar.

Then he won one of his next four matches before entering Rotterdam. This is just his second appearance in the main draw of Rotterdam.

He came through a couple of qualifying rounds last year and then lost in the first round.

Bedene opened this year’s Rotterdam campaign with a straight-sets win over Benoit Paire before a totally unexpected fight back success over second seed Tsitsipas.

Bedene had dropped the opening set on a tiebreak there before only dropping four games in the next two sets.
