Lorenzo Sonego fell at last year’s ATP Eastbourne hurdle, losing to Alex de Minaur in the final, but he can get off to a good start for this year’s edition of the grass-court event .
The Italian lost his opener at Queen’s last week but at least started the season on grass well with a run to the ATP Stuttgart quarter-finals in which he beat fellow in-form Matteo Berrettini.
The 27-year-old starts his campaign at Eastbourne against Australian James Duckworth and deserves a bet at -3.5 on the games handicap.
Duckworth was unimpressive at Queen’s, winning four games less than Paul Jubb and getting knocked out in the qualifying phase and he could be out of his depth against Sonego.
Alejandro Davidovich Fokina was one of the stars of the show at Queen’s, progressing to the quarter-finals and he can comfortably win against compatriot Pedro Martinez.
Davidovich Fokina won the scalps of Albert Ramos-Vinolas and Minaur at West Kensington last week and can continue his warm-up for Wimbledon with a 2-0 victory over Martinez, who has lost each of his last seven matches on the ATP Tour. .
He lost 6-3 6-2 most recently to inexperienced Argentinian Francisco Cerundolo and another complete loss could await him against his doubles partner.
Dane Holger Rune, meanwhile, lost in straight sets to Pablo Carreno Busta on his grass court debut at the Halle Open last week and his inexperience could show against brave Briton Ryan Peniston.
Peniston was fearless at Queen’s, seeing off top seed Casper Ruud 7-6 7-6 in his opener en route to the quarter-finals of the event and he looks like someone with a point to prove. Support him in disagreement to defeat Rune.
