Last week, Troitsky played a little in the Asia-Pacific Cup.

It seems that Victor got the necessary game practice, since here he already managed to beat Bradley Clan (6-4, 6-2). In 2019, Troitsky managed to win the qualification for AO and played in the main grid of AO. Then in the second round he lost the battle to Stefanos Tsitsipas.

Christopher Eubanks vs Victor Troitsky Prediction
Troitsky is superior to Eubanks in a backline game. In addition, the Serb has much more experience. Christopher builds his entire game around a strong pitch, which does not always go with him. If Victor already coped with the Clan, then he should not have any problems with such an opponent.
Our prediction – Victor Troitsky to win
