Exciting tennis action takes place in Dallas this week, with players showcasing their skills on a Laykold indoor hardcourt surface. One interesting aspect to keep an eye on is the prevalence of tie-breaks in the tournament.

In recent years, tie-breaks have become quite common in this event. Since it moved to Dallas in 2022, nearly half of the main-draw matches, 28 out of 54, have seen tie-breaks. Last year, 16 out of 27 matches featured tie-breaks, indicating the competitive nature of the tournament.

This year marks the third and final edition of the tournament at the Styslinger/Altec Tennis Complex, as it is set to be elevated to a '500' level event next season, relocating to a larger venue.

While the conditions might change in the future, for now, it's a good idea to watch out for players known for their strong serves and aggressive playing style. One standout contender this year is Ben Shelton, who is currently joint-favourite with odds of 9/2. Shelton possesses a formidable first serve, likely earning him many easy points during the tournament. Despite his early exit from the recent Australian Open, Shelton reached the semi-finals in Auckland, showing that he has the potential to perform well on hardcourt surfaces. With significant hardcourt events like Indian Wells and Miami on the horizon, this could be a promising part of the season for him.

In addition to Shelton, keep an eye on Christopher Eubanks, another player with a powerful serve, though he disappointed in his recent performance in Australia. Adrian Mannarino has started the 2024 season strongly, but his performance in Dallas may be influenced by his recent participation in Davis Cup matches in Lithuania.

Jordan Thompson, who could face Shelton in the quarter-finals, is also worth considering at 12/1 odds. Thompson had a strong showing on home soil in Brisbane, where he reached the semi-finals, including a victory over Rafael Nadal. He is known for his ability to hold his serve and could be involved in several tie-breaks this week, although he faces a 2-0 head-to-head record disadvantage against Shelton.

In a tournament where finding value is challenging, siding with the joint-favourite, Ben Shelton, is a reasonable choice for those looking to bet on this exciting event. Shelton's powerful serve and recent performances make him a strong contender to watch.
