James Duckworth burst into the top 100 last season, but all victory statistics are based on weak tournaments and collected from weak rivals. Such tournaments are played by young and inexperienced tennis players or experienced, but no longer in shape, and not young.
Duckworth is quite confident at the tournament in Pune. The Australian in three meetings lost only a set. This happened in the second round match against Daniel (6-7, 7-6, 6-3).
In two other meetings, Duckworth won a dry victory. In the first round, he dealt with the representative of Germany Peter Gojowczyk (7-5, 6-4), and in the third – he defeated the Italian Roberto Marcora (6-3, 7-6).
Egor Gerasimov spent a good last season and is gaining a great shape during this season. Egor very often loses the beginning of the game and then returns. Previously, tennis players met a long time ago in 2015, where Yegor lost, but at that moment he was in terrible shape.
In fact, in this match much will be decided from the mood for the game and the mood with Egor Gerasimov I really liked from the last match. Gerasimov only in the first round of the competition in Pune did not experience any special problems. In a game against 38-year-old Italian Paolo Lorenzi, Egor gave only five games to his opponent (6-2, 6-3).
The other two meetings were three-set and could well have ended in defeat for Gerasimov. The match against Milojevic ended with a score of 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, and the match against the Korean Soonwoo Kwon – 4-6, 7-6, 6-4.
Betting Tips Statistics
- For personal meetings leads Duckworth with a score of 1-0.
- Gerasimov won four victories in the last five games, Duckworth – three.
Gerasimov is a favorite among bookmakers in the upcoming meeting and this is not entirely clear. Of course, Egor Gerasimov is a pretty good athlete, but still he sags in places, so against such an opponent as an Australian he will be very difficult in this fight, so it seems to me he will not be able to defeat him. The two previous matches could well be the last for the Belarusian tennis player at the current tournament in Pune. Egor still lacks stability, and without this component it will be extremely difficult to oppose something to Duckworth, who is now in great shape.
Based on this, my forecast for this match is confident victory for the Australians, the more you can see its results that he has been spending lately over the last 10 fights, he lost only two matches and there were serious enough opponents from the first hundred, but if you take Gerasimov about this athlete, you can say to participate in the challenge but not for serious tournaments! So here will offend Duckworth!
Our prediction is Duckworth’s victory
