ATP Geneva Open prediction and betting tips

The Geneva Open is nearing the finish line, with just four men remaining at the ATP 250 event. One of these is two-time champion Casper Ruud, who takes on young Italian Flavio Cobolli in the second semi-final. Who will come out on top? Read on for our Ruud vs Cobolli prediction and betting tips.

With a spot in the final against either top seed Novak Djokovic or the unseeded Tomas Machac, Ruud will be eager to advance on Friday. The Norwegian has had a handy clay season so far, with one title and one final over the past six weeks. However, he’d dearly love some silverware in his hands ahead of Roland-Garros next week, where he’ll sense an opportunity for a deep run.

For Cobolli, the 22-year-old will have nothing to lose. He’s already pulled off a big upset this week, knocking out No 4 seed Ben Shelton in the second round, and will be eyeing another scalp here. He’ll have his work cut out for him, but anything is possible.

How Bookies View it: Ruud Way Ahead

Bookmaker bet365 has Ruud as a heavy favourite in this one, returning just 1/6 for the 25-year-old to move past Cobolli. His opponent is a big underdog at 4/1 to win, with set betting suggesting Ruud to win 2-1 at 16/5.

Ruud and Cobolli have never met on the ATP Tour, making this their first meeting.

Anything Else Catch the Eye?

Both players have positive win-loss ratios in 2024 so far. Heading into Geneva, Cobolli was at 12-11, thanks to deep runs in Montpellier and Delray Beach. This will be the Italian’s first semi-final of the year, however, having made two quarters previously.

For Ruud, he’s sitting at an impressive 31-9, leading the ATP Tour for wins this season. He’ll have his eye on making the final here, where there’s a good chance he faces Novak Djokovic.

Djokovic and Ruud are slated to meet in the Roland-Garros quarter-finals, with the French Open draw being released on Thursday. The Geneva final could serve as a perfect dress rehearsal, with the winning taking a good deal of confidence into their potential meeting in 10 days’ time.

Ruud vs Cobolli Betting Tips and Predictions

Ruud and Cobolli both are showing excellent form on the clay. However, Ruud has dominated this tournament twice, and has some excellent statistics this week. We say he’s more likely to take the spot in the finals. 

  • Ruud to win @ 1/6 
  • Ruud to win 2-1 @ 16/5

Ruud and Cobolli will play third in the Centre Court of the Geneva Open, not before 4pm local time.
