Alcaraz Storms into the Semifinals

19-year old Alcaraz stunned Karen Khachanov in the quarterfinals earlier on Friday. The Spaniard defeated the Russian 6-0, 6-2, to remain undefeated at the 500 level this season. He’s now 13-0, all of which is on clay.

In his quarterfinal match, he defeated his opponent by firing off 21 winners to just seven unforced errors, marking one of his best matches of the year. The number one seed was able to save his only break point he faced all match, and was five of 11 on his own break chances.

Borna Coric Retires from Match

Molcan has had an impressive tournament over the past three matches. He went on to upset Pablo Carreno Busta in the second round, winning in three sets. This earned him his spot in the quarterfinals, where he went onto beat Borna Coric 7(9)-6(7), 2-0, when Coric retired from the match.

The 24-year old is still looking for his first ATP Tour title, and will be looking to reach his third final of the season.

Alcaraz vs Molcan Pick

With -900 odds to win the match, it’s hard to say to bet against the Spaniard. So let’s try and find a better bet.

Molcan will look to give Alcaraz trouble, but this might be a simple case of the Spaniard being able to outplay his opponent. Alcaraz is the more experienced and successful on clay, no one has really been able to beat him.

Yes, it seems like Alcaraz will be able to move on without much trouble, but the best bet is in total games.

Best Bet: Under 19.5 games (-110)
