Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell & BRD Nastase Tiriac Trophy Odds to Win

2014 Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell

Rafael Nadal is the top choice to win the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell while Mikhail Youzhny is the top ranked player at the BRD Nastase Tiriac Trophy. Here is a look at both of these events which begin on Monday and tennis picks.

Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell

Rafael Nadal is the clear choice to win this event. He is a clay court master and he has won this event eight of the last nine years. Nadal moved into 12th place on the all-time wins list last week as he won his 680th match. He will pass Arthur Ashe shortly for 11th place and he should get into the Top 10 before this year is over. And Nadal has won more than 300 times on clay.

The field for the tournament in Barcelona is a pretty good one. It also includes world #6 David Ferrer who has finished runner-up in this event four times. Richard Gasquet will also be part of the field in addition to Fabio Fognini who is very good on clay. Other contenders include Kei Nishikori and Spanish players Fernando Verdasco, Tommy Robredo, Nico Almagro and Feliciano Lopez.

BRD Nastase Tiriac Trophy

This event takes a back seat to the tournament in Barcelona as it is an ATP World Tour 250 event. A field of 28 will play at Bucharest, Romania. Even though Youzhny is the highest ranked player in the field it could be that some of the former champs will be favored. Lukas Rosol won this event last year, Gilles Simon won it in 2012 and Florian Mayer was the champion in 2011.

If one of the former champs doesn’t take the title this year then it could be Gael Monfils who is ranked 25th in the world or Vasek Pospisil who is ranked 27th getting the victory. Those two will be seeded along with Mikhail Youzhny, Gilles Simon and Janko Tipsarevic.

Tennis Picks

It would be a shock if Nadal didn’t win the tourney in Barcelona. The tourney in Romania is wide open so taking a longshot in tennis odds like Simon could be worth a look.
