David Goffin v Grigor Dimitrov Predictions & Preview
In a repeat of the title match of the 2017 ATP Tour Finals, David Goffin plays Grigor Dimitrov as Belgium and Bulgaria clash in a crucial tie. The players have met nine times before, with Dimitrov holding a convincing 8-1 lead in the head-to-head.
With wins in previous ties against Moldova and Great Britain, Bulgaria spearheaded by Dimitrov will be looking for a convincing showing here, that will ensure them qualifying for the final eight of the inaugural ATP Cup.
On the other hand, after defeating Moldova convincingly, Belgium was defeated by Great Britain, making this tie all the more important for them.
Having won against Radu Albot and Daniel Evans earlier in the tournament, Dimitrov will be looking to carry forward his form against Goffin, and continue his strong start to the season, after a poor 2019.
Also on the recovery in late 2019, Goffin will be disappointed by his loss to Dan Evans in the previous tie and look to reverse the tide for Belgium.
An exciting match on the cards; expect Goffin to edge Dimitrov in a close encounter
Tip: Goffin in three sets: 17/4 (Click here to get these odds with Unibet)
Daniel Evans v Radu Albot Predictions & Preview
As part of a must-win tie for Great Britain, Daniel Evans takes on Radu Albot of Moldova in the ATP Cup.
The players have met three times in their career, with all meetings being in 2019. Evans leads the head-to-head 2-1, with Albot’s sole win coming in the nail-biting Delray Beach final in February of last year.
Having defeated David Goffin in the previous match, Evans will be coming into the match high on confidence and looking to carry forward his form.
Separately, at the back of two consecutive defeats against Dimitrov and Goffin, Albot will hope to salvage some form and confidence with a strong showing here against Evans.
Expect another close encounter between both players, but with a potential spot in the quarter-finals at stake, expect the Briton to win in two hard-fought sets.
Tip: Evans to win in straight sets: 2/1 (Click here to get these odds with Unibet)
Jan-Lennard Struff v Felix Auger-Aliassime Predictions & Preview
In an important tie between Germany and Canada, Jan-Lennard Struff and Felix Auger-Aliassime meet for the first time in their careers.
Both players have had similar fate thus far at the tournament, winning one match and losing the other, of the two that they have played.
Struff and Auger-Aliassime successfully defeated Michail Pervolarakis, but then lost their matches against their Aussie counterparts, with Struff being defeated by Nick Kyrgios and Auger-Aliassime by John Milman.
This promises to be a battle between the strong serves of both players, backed by strong groundstrokes of the German, and the all-court play of Auger- Aliassime.
2019 was a good season for both, but both will be looking for a more consistent 2020, where they can catapult further up the ATP men’s rankings.
Epxect a tight contest, with the young Canadian prevailing in the decider, in a match of very low margins.
Tip: Auger-Aliassime to win in three sets: 10/3 (Click here to get these odds with Unibet)
Michail Pervolarakis v Nick Kyrgios Predictions & Preview
Defeating Canada and Germany, and being the first team to qualify for the final eight, Australia takes on Greece in their final group stage tie. Nick Kyrgios plays Michail Pervolarakis in a clash of second seeds in this ATP Cup tie.
In the ‘Group of Death’, Pervolarakis has had his hands full with defeats at the hands of Auger-Aliassime and Struff. On the other hand, Kyrgios played in the opening tie against Struff winning convincingly, but did not feature in the Australia-Canada matchup.
As is always the case with Kyrgios, a lot depends on the version of the Aussie that shows up on the given day.
However, playing at home after looking in good form in the opener, against the little known Greek, it is difficult to envision Kyrgios not winning this match comfortably.
Expect a straight-set win for the Aussie.
Tip: Kyrgios to win in straight sets: 1/8 (Click here to get these odds with Unibet)
