The action continues in Hamburg after a day of upsets. Join us while we go through the most value lines for this Saturday’s action at the German Tennis Championships semi-finals.

<h2><a href="" target="_blank" title="Shop Kovalik - Mayer Betting Odds">Josef Kovalik (q) vs. Leonardo Mayer</a></h2><p>Two-time champion Leonardo Mayer continues to impress at the German Tennis Championships. Playing in Hamburg brings the best out of Mayer with the 31-year-old winning 83.33% of the matches played throughout his career on this event. Adding to this, Mayer is just two wins away from becoming the fourth player in Open Era to win three titles in Hamburg. Looking now at Leonardo’s campaign on this event, the defending champion proved too strong for fellow Argentinean Diego Schwartzman 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 in two hours and 14 minutes for a place in the semi-finals.</p><p>Mayer will take on Slovak qualifier Josef Kovalik, who is having the best season of his career. Regardless of this Saturday’s outcome, Kovalik already secured his career-high ranking next week with an unprecedented appearance in the top-100. On the other hand, the 25-year-old reached his first ATP World Tour 500 semi-final after a three-set win over Thiago Monteiro in the previous round.</p><p>Despite Josef’s incredible run, it’s hard to ignore Mayer’s outstanding record on this event. The Argentinean is one of the most successful players in Hamburg history and the fast conditions suiting him perfectly. Having said that, our suggestion is for you to add Mayer’s moneyline to your betting picks at 1.66 <a href=";a=e605009c-af6d-4596-a06f-dbd28d37b12f&amp;f=2" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join Bet365 &amp; Start Playing Today!">with Bet365</a> as the best value bet for this contest.</p><h2><a href="" target="_blank" title="Shop Jarry - Basilashvili Betting Odds">Nicolas Jarry vs. Nikoloz Basilashvili (q)</a></h2><p>Nicolas Jarry recorded the biggest win of his career, taking out Dominic Thiem for a place at the German Tennis Championships semi-final. Known as one of the best servers on the ATP World Tour, Jarry won 71.67% of the points behind his first serve. In addition, Jarry fired 35 winners and saved three set points in the second set tie break before claiming his first victory over a top-10 opponent.</p><p>Nikoloz Basilashvili produced one of his best-ever performances to defeat Pablo Carreno Busta in the quarter-finals of Hamburg. The 26-year-old has played some fantastic tennis this week and is just one win away from reaching his first ATP World Tour final. Carreno Busta couldn’t find a solution to Basilashvili’s aggression with the Spaniard winning only 48.57% of the points behind his second serve.</p><p>These two players will face each other for the second time in their careers with Jarry emerging victorious from their previous meeting at the Savannah Challenger in 2016.</p><p>Looking now at the odds for this contest, the bookmakers are expect a close encounter with Jarry as the slight favourite at 1.73 with William Hill. Nevertheless, it won’t be easy for the Chilean to overcome such an aggressive player as Nikoloz. For that reason, our advice is for you to take advantage of the value on Basilashvili’s tennis betting odds to win this match at 2.29 <a href=";a=f682f8e1-79b8-45d0-939a-7163c28d604b" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Play at this A+ Rated Bookmaker">with Pinnacle</a>.</p>
