Fernando Verdasco recently reached the quarterfinals of the tournament in Doha. What awaits him at the tournament in Adelaide, where he will play with Jan-Lennard Struff in the first round on January 13? – read in our prediction.
For Verdasco, the season began in Doha. At a tournament in Qatar, a Spanish veteran, who turned 36 at the end of last year, managed to get to the quarter-finals.
During the competition, Fernando beat his compatriot Pablo Andujar (6-4, 6-3) and Serbian tennis player Filip Krajinovic (7-5, 4-6, 6-0). In the quarterfinal of the competition, Verdasco lost to the Frenchman Corenten Mute (4-6, 6-4, 4-6) in an equal fight.
Struff at the beginning of this season took part in the ATP Cup as part of the German national team. At a team tournament in Australia, Jan-Lennard held three fights, in two of which he won.
At the ATP Cup, Struff in two sets outplayed Greek Michael Pervolarakis (6-4, 6-1) and Canadian Felix Auger-Allassim (6-1, 6-4). And also in two games he lost to Nick Kirgios (4-6, 6-7).
Statistics and personal meetings
- In personal meetings, Verdasco leads 2-0.
- This season, tennis players have played three matches and won two victories.
Fernando Verdasco vs Jan-Lennard Struff Game Predictions
Verdasco, despite his age (36 years), is still able to compete at the highest level. He demonstrated this at a recent tournament in Doha, where he reached the quarter-finals.
Given that both personal meetings with Struff remained with the Spanish tennis player, we expect that Fernando will not leave the court without a fight, therefore, we propose to bet on his victory with a handicap.
Our prediction – victory Verdasco
