Daniel badly started this year. In Canberra, the representative of Japan lost to the rising star from Finland Emil Ruusuvuori (2-6, 2-6), and in qualifying for the Australian Open he lost to Nikola Milosevic (5-7, 4-6). This state of affairs made Taro change tactics. His choice fell in favor of the Challenger in Australian Bernie, where he celebrated the victory. In the final, Daniel defeated Yannick Hanfmann (6-2, 6-2).
Despite the fact that Taro has been playing for the second week in a row, here he managed to continue his winning streak. In the previous round, the representative of Japan beat the 263rd racket of the world ranking of the Indian Mukunda (6-2, 7-6).
Dakworth is very familiar with this city. At the end of 2019, James won the competition in Pune. True, then it was just a challenge. Now the Australian can do this at a higher-ranking competition, but first you need to beat Daniel.
It is worth noting that the first round, the representative of Australia was quite easy. In that match, he defeated Peter Gojowczyk (7-6, 6-4). This was Duckworth’s second win of the season. Previously, he beat Federico Delbonis.
Betting Tips Statistics
- Six years ago, Duckworth defeated Daniel with a score of 6-1, 6-2.
- Last year, the Japanese won 13 matches on hard. Australian 39.
It looks like Daniel is already a little tired. In the second set of the match with Mukund Taro Daniel made a lot of mistakes and even once lost his serve. The Japanese, of course, has better technique, but now he may not have enough strength. Duckworth has a strong pitch, therefore, due to this component of the game, he has good chances to remove a tired opponent from his path.
Our prediction is the victory of James Duckworth
