1st round of ATP Buenos Aires. Estrella Burgos (DOM, 93) meets Thiago Monteiro (BRA, 83) in this clay tournament. My pick is Monteiro at 1. 65 for couple of reasons.
Estrella Burgos won for the third time in a row the Quito ATP at the age of 36, this is clearly unbelievable and amazing by this player. However, the ATP Quito is a clay court tournament with special conditions as the altitude is really really high it makes the clay very tricky and makes it a very different tournament from typical South American tournaments. However, Estrella showed that he's the GOAT out there and that the conditions somehow suits him and maked him play his best tennis the last 3 years for a week in February.
However, despite winning an ATP title at least every year he's still ranked 93. He's not a great player outside Quito tbh and that's quite weird. The conditions here in Buenos Aires are much different and it's much slower. Thiago Monteiro the brazilian is a great young talent making improvements year after year. Been really dominant in challenger tour last year, he also pulled some upsets in his career in big events.
He's the better player. And with Estrella winning Quito only 3 days ago, he played some really really long match and at 36 years old he may feel his leg today. That also means that Estrella didn't pratice much in this tournament where he never played so far in his career, while Monteiro being eliminated last week in R1, has probably been around the Buenos Aires's courts a lot.
1. 65 on 10bet with a chance to get this bet as a winner if Estrella retires. Fair price, good luck
