Milos Raonic v Jan-Lennard Struff Head to Head
The two players have met only once on the tour and that match took place in the first round of the 2017 Wimbledon. Raonic won that in straight sets.
Raonic Seeking his First Title Since 2016
The Canadian so far has had a rather decent run on the tour. With seven wins and just three losses, the World No. 14 is slowly clawing his way back into the top 10 although, there is still a long way to go.
He reached the quarterfinal in Brisbane and the Australian Open where he lost respectively to Daniil Medvedev and Lucas Pouille. Raonic took a long break in February, playing in one competition in Rotterdam. Over there, he met Stan Wawrinka in the second round and succumbed to the Swiss in straight sets.
His last title came in 2016 ATP Brisbane, where he defeated Roger Federer in the final. Since then, he has reached the final six times but hasn’t had much luck. His last final was the 2018 Stuttgart Open. Despite a dearth of titles, Raonic has done well to recover from his injuries and move into the top 20.
Struff Looking to Emulate his Auckland Run
Struff, who is currently the World No. 54 on the ATP Tour, last played in Rotterdam where he lost in the first round of the qualifiers. He incurred early exits in Sofia, Melbourne, and Brisbane as well and has lost four matches up until now.
However, the 28-year-old German did manage to woo some supporters when he reached the semifinal at the ATP Auckland. While he looked determined to go the distance, his run was stopped by Cameron Norrie.
Raonic v Struff Predictions & Tips
The German is not among the most daunting players on the tour. He has never reached the final on the circuit, let alone win a singles title. Raonic will start this one as the favourite and he should be able to win this one comfortably.
You can watch & bet on Milos Raonic v Jan-Lennard Struff on Monday, February 25. The match is scheduled to start from 11:30 am BST (3:30 pm local time) in Dubai.
