THE PREDICTION

World number 115 Juan Pablo Varillas qualified well this week to reach the Hamburg Open main draw and then took his chance masterfully in a straight-sets victory over Lorenzo Sonego. The 26-year-old faces one of the bigger matches of his career here against the third seed Roberto Bautista Agut and there is a degree of uncertainty to consider after the 34-year-old contracted covid-19 at Wimbledon last month. World number 19 Bautista Agut lost in three sets to a resurgent Dominic Thiem at last week’s Bastad Open and, whilst that is no embarrassment in itself, it could suggest that the Spaniard may have some unknown lingering after-effects from the virus. We have seen some players need months to recuperate after the illness but just as many can take to the court the following week as if nothing had happened. Leave this match out of an accumulator but consider taking a one-off punt on Varillas to cause an upset here or more cautiously take at least a set.
