<h2><a href="" target="_blank" title="Check Medvedev - Tsonga Betting Odds">Daniil Medvedev (5) vs. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga</a></h2><p>Daniil Medvedev extended his winning streak to seven matches after a 6-2, 7-5 win over Fernando Verdasco in the second round of the ABN Amro World Tennis Tournament. The 23-year-old Russian carried the momentum he gained from his fourth ATP title in Sofia and has now won 13 of his 15 matches in 2019. Despite Verdasco’s undeniable quality, the Spanish veteran couldn’t find the solution to Medvedev’s solid baseline game, ending the match with 42 unforced errors.</p><p>Medvedev will next face Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who is also on a seven-match winning streak after claiming the 17th title of his career last week at the Open Sud de France in Montpellier. Playing in Rotterdam brings many happy memories to Tsonga. In addition to his impressive 14-4 career record on this event, the 33-year-old Frenchman won the title in his previous appearance in 2017. Looking now at Tsonga’s campaign on this year’s edition of the ABN Amro World Tennis Tournament, the former world No.5 reaches this stage of the competition after a straight sets victory against Tallon Griekspoor in just 77 minutes.</p><p>These two players will face each other for the third time in their careers. Tsonga won their first encounter at the 2017 Open Sud de France while Medvedev got his revenge earlier this year in Brisbane.</p><p>Both players enjoy the fast court conditions at the Ahoy Rotterdam and everyone is expecting a very entertaining match between two in-form players. Tsonga is one of the best servers in the game but Medvedev is a tough matchup for the Frenchman. Daniil has played near-flawless tennis this year and it’s impossible to go against the Russian at the moment. With this in mind, our advice is to take advantage of the value on Medvedev’s <a href="" target="_blank" title="Tennis Betting Odds Board">tennis betting odds</a> to win this match at 1.79 with Pinnacle.</p><p> </p><h2><a href="" target="_blank" title="Check Isner - Thompson Betting Odds">John Isner (1) vs. Jordan Thompson (7)</a></h2><p>John Isner picked up his first win of 2019 on Wednesday after defeating Bernard Tomic 7-6(7), 6-4 in the second round of the New York Open. The No.1 seed struck 27 aces, won 85.37% of his first serve points and did not face a single break point in a match that lasted one hour and 15 minutes. Isner has had most of his success on American soil and hopes this trend will continue in New York. Twelve of John’s 14 titles have come in the U.S., including the biggest trophy of his career at the Miami Open Masters 1000 in 2018.</p><p>Isner will take on Jordan Thompson in the quarter-finals of the New York Open. Thompson recovered from a set down to win this second-round encounter against American qualifier Christopher Eubanks in one hour and 31 minutes. The 24-year-old from Sydney has yet to make it past the quarter-finals of any ATP tournament and only won 29.73% of the matches played against Top 50 players throughout his career. Nevertheless, Thompson enjoys the fast court conditions at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, winning 96.60% of his service games on this event.</p><p>This will be the second meeting between these two players. Isner leads 1-0 on their head-to-head after a four-set victory over the Australian at the French Open in 2017.</p><p>The bookmakers are expecting a straightforward win from Isner with the American as the main favourite <a href=";a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Play at this A+ Rated Bookmaker!">at 1.33 with William Hill</a>. Isner was almost untouchable on his own delivery in the previous round but played very poor return games. On the other hand, Thompson is a great server and an outstanding fighter. For that reason, our suggestion is to add Jordan’s +2.5 game handicap <a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join Bet365 &amp; Start Playing Today!">at 1.80 with Bet365</a> to your <a href="" target="_blank" title="More Predictions &amp; Free Tips">betting tips</a> in a match where we may not see a single break of serve.</p>
