ATP 500: Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships 2024 | Big Names Emerge Ahead of Sunshine Double

Ahead of next week’s Sunshine Double kicking off, dual ATP 500 events take place this week in men’s tennis. The first of these is the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships in the United Arab Emirates where Daniil Medvedev will look to defend the title he won this time last year.

There’s plenty on the line for the Russian this week as he looks to potentially reclaim the No. 3 spot in the ATP rankings after losing it recently to the in-form Jannik Sinner. However, Medvedev will have a tough time if he’s to lift back-to-back Dubai titles, with plenty of hard-court specialists showing up in the desert to rival him. The likes of Andrey Rublev. Hubert Hurkacz, Karen Khachanov and Ugo Humbert will all have plans of their own to prevail in Dubai, making for a mouth-watering week of tennis to come.

ウィリアムヒルWe break down all the latest betting odds from bookmaker William Hill and outline the best bets to make on the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships this week.

Current Odds Date & Time: February 26th, 3:30 A.M. (GMT)

Outright betting odds understandably favour the defending champion and highest ranked player in the Dubai field, Daniil Medvedev. The world No. 4 pays just 2.62 at bookmaker William Hill to win the title in the United Arab Emirates, ahead of compatriot Andrey Rublev who is at 5.50 in the odds.

Behind these two, Hubert Hurkacz is right in the mix too with a return of 6.00, before a drop off in the odds. Karen Khachanov pays 12.00, before Jiri Lehecka rounds out the top five favourites at 15.00 alongside Sebastian Korda.

Looking at these odds, we say backing Rublev to have a big run in Dubai is the best bet to make. The Russian is typically a very strong February and October player, capitalising on the post-Grand Slam window in the calendar. However, he’s had two uncharacteristic losses in Rotterdam and Doha the past two weeks. Knowing his determination, the world No. 5 will be eager to apply himself and make amends this week. With a blistering game well suited for Middle Eastern conditions, it would be no surprise to see Rublev make a title run here.

For those less convinced by Rublev’s form, bookmaker William Hill is offering great odds on an unseeded player to make the final. The pay out on this market is 1.61, with plenty of excellent candidates: Sebastian Korda, Jan-Lennard Struff, Lorenzo Musetti, Jiri Lehecka, Borna Coric and Arthur Cazaux, to name a few. Betting on such a broad pool of players to have one make a hot run is a very strong option, and one that’s more than worth taking in our opinion.
