Márton Ficovich vs Cem Ilkel Prediction
Ficovich began his career in the competition in Doha with qualifications and has already played three matches at the tournament, so he already managed to get to know the local courts pretty well. However, all three matches were three-set, which is why the representative of Hungary can accumulate fatigue.
Ilkel, even though he is on the 279th line of the ATP rating, but any tennis player can pat his nerves. We offer to bet on the victory of the Turkish athlete with a handicap.
