The last tournament before the US Open is played at Winston Salem, but a rather small one, with 250 ATP points. Even so, many top tennis players are present, wanting to do one last rehearsal before the last grand slam of the year.
The big names include Pablo Carreno Busta, a sportsman who had some problems at the beginning of the year but now seems to find a good rhythm. He is, however, a semi-finalist at the US Open, and through a few games won here he can once again hope for a second week presence in New York. Marius Copil on the other hand is trying to make a good tournament, his year being quite modest, having many defeats in recent months and being one step away from the first world.

Tennis Prediction of the Day Pablo Carreno Busta vs Marius Copil
Pablo Carreno Busta is playing better and better and in a short time I think we will see him at the pace he was 1-2 years ago, when he reached the semi-finals at the US Open. He comes after round 3 in Cincinnati, losing with Djokovic but after a good game, passing Isner and Simon. And in the qualifications he even passed the Child after a very clear 6-2 6-2, a match in which Busta did not lose his service at all, managing 4 breaks and dominating even on the first ball of the opponent. Marius Copil is not in shape at all, but in the first round he passed Klizan. However the match was balanced, and now he will face a superior net opponent on the baseline and in long exchanges.
