35-year-old Seppi demonstrates great tennis at the tournament in New York. It is likely that a experienced Italian enjoys playing in the hall.
Seppi has won against Damir Dzumhur (6-3, 1-6, 7-6), Steve Johnson (7-6, 6-3) and Jordan Thompson (6-7, 6-4, 6-1) ). It is noteworthy that in all the fights the Italian was an underdog.
It is no doubt that behind the shoulders of Andreas is a tremendous experience and skills set, but still no one expected to see the veteran in the semifinals. At every stage of the tournament, bookmakers did not believe in an Italian who was led by an outsider from match to match, but he ruined all the stereotypes.
Andreas doesn’t show some phenomenal game, but he is doing what he should do and is putting 100% of his energy in it, which allowed to send Dzumhur, Johnson and Thompson out of the tournament. The Italian veteran has no problems with the game on the pitch, nor with the reception and works forehand, from which most of the points were obtained.
Jang began his path at the tournament in New York with a qualification, which is why in the assets of the Taiwanese tennis player there are five victories in the current competition. Consecutively, Jang beated Gary Kushnirovich (6-3, 6-2) and Mitchell Krueger (6-2, 6-4).
In the main grid of the tournament, Jason won over Kevin Anderson (7-6, 6-4), Cameron Norrie (6-4, 6-4) and Reilly Opelka (5-7, 6-4, 6-4).
Jason is a typical Challenger representative. After last year’s success here in New York no one would expect something similar this time. The Taiwanese caught the courage, and acts perfectly both on the pitch and at the reception, becoming one of the strongest ATP players in the tournament.
The initial chances of success in the fights with South African Anderson and American Norrie were rated very low, but in fact we could watch a completely different game picture on the court.
Jason Jang’s peculiarity is that he chains on the back line and is good on the move, so it is precisely at the expense of this component that he can shake the nerves Andreas Seppi, who is not always able to quickly complete the launched attacks.
Betting Tips Statistics
- Previously, tennis players did not meet with each other.
- In the last five matches, Jung has won five games and Seppi has won ones.
For the first time in the course of the tournament Andreas Seppi is more likely to succeed than his opponent, but will he now be able to win in a new role?
Of course, the class and experience should help the Italian veteran to make it to the finals, but a simple training mode here is definitely not the case. Jason Jung caught the courage and most importantly, there is nothing to lose.
Our prediction is the victory of Andreas Seppi.
