<h2><a href="" target="_blank" title="Betting Odds for Smyczek - Ramanathan">Tim Smyczek vs. Ramkumar Ramanathan</a></h2><p>Tim Smyczek’s dream run continues at the Dell Technologies Hall of Fame Open in Newport. The 30-year-old has struggled for form since the start of the year with a disappointing 15-18 record before this tournament. Nevertheless, Smyczek is playing his best tennis this week in Newport. Adding to this, the American will play his first tour-level semi-final in his 13th year of professional tennis after a three-set win over wild card Jason Jung in the previous round.</p><p>Ramkumar Ramanathan remains on court to reach his first final on the ATP World Tour. The world No.161 became the first Indian player to reach the last four on the ATP circuit since Somdev Devvarman at the SA Tennis Open in Johannesburg seven years ago. Known as one of the few serve-and-volley players remaining in the game, the fast conditions in Newport suit Ramkumar’s style. Looking now at Ramanathan’s campaign on this event, the 23-year-old reaches this stage of the competition after a 7-5, 6-2 win over Vasek Pospisil.</p><p>The bookmakers expect a close encounter with the American as the slight favourite at 1.87 <a href=";a=f682f8e1-79b8-45d0-939a-7163c28d604b" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Play at this A+ Rated Sportsbook">with Pinnacle</a>. Despite Ramanathan’s brilliant run, it won’t be easy for the Indian to overcome such a great returner as Smyczek. On the other hand, Tim has a good record against offensive players with an impressive straight-sets win over Matthew Ebden earlier this week. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to add Smyczek’s moneyline to your betting picks as the most value play for this match.</p>
