2017 Shenzhen Open Preview And Tip

The Shenzhen Open is an ATP Tour 250 Series Event, which is played at the Shenzhen Longgang Tennis Center on outdoor hardcourts. It is a relatively new event, with this being just the fourth renewal. Andy Murray won the inaugural event in 2014, with Tomas Berdych winning in both 2015 and 2016. However, there will be a new name on the trophy this year, as neither of the previous champions are playing.

First Quarter

World number 4 Alexander Zverev is ranked at least 8 places higher than any other player in the field this week, but the first-quarter may not be as plain sailing as the rankings suggest. That’s because he could face an early battle with Steve Darcis, who beat him 3-1 in the David Cup when Belgium played Germany earlier this season. The inform Damir Dzumhur also lies in wait, and much will depend on whether Zverev is in top-form as he plays for the first time since the US Open.

Second Quarter

A tight quarter with the likes of Micha Zverev and Dudi Sela standing at 1-1, and Dolgopolov holding a 3-2 lead over Stakovsky. However, it’s Dolgoplov who has won his last matches against all of those 3 opponents.

Third Quarter

Seventh seed Joao Sousa should win his opening match, but faces a tough second round against either Jaziri or Copil, both of whom he trails in head-to-heads. However, if he does get through that match, he’ll be fancying his chances of making the semi-finals as he has won 3 of his 4 previous matches with fourth seed Paolo Lorenzi.

Fourth Quarter

Yet another difficult to predict quarter, with world number 12 David Goffin yet to hit top-formhe  after his injury at the French Open, and lost his only previous match with possible second round opponent Evgeny Donskoy, whilst the winner could play Donald Young in the quarter-final.


This could easily go the way of Alexander Zverev or David Goffin, but neither are guaranteed to arrive at the top of their games – and it might be worth going with players at bigger prices from each quarter.

Damir Dzumhur is definitely playing well enough to make the most of a chance like this and, as he’s not played Dolgopolov before, it could be worth also including the Ukrainian from the top-half of the draw. Meanwhile, Jaoa Sousa and Evgeny Donskoy look worthy of inclusion from the bottom-half of the draw.
