Pablo Carreno Busta
Carreno-Busta fought his way through the semi-finals of this tournament. In all the fights of these competitions, the Spaniard always lost the set, but this did not stop him from winning victories. First, Pablo passed Adrian Mannarino (7-5, 6-7, 6-4), then left Roberto Bautista Agut was out of the game (6-4, 2-6, 7-6). He played his last match in the quarter finals, where he outplayed Jannick Sinner (7-5, 3-6, 7-6).
It is worth noting that while the Spaniard is far from the optimal form of play. He passes his rivals only on his class, but the number of mistakes in the matches goes off the scale.
In recent years, it is difficult to expect anything specific from Carreno Busta. After all, although he began a new stage in his professional career, he still performs extremely unstable and with constant changes. He can travel from tournament to tournament for weeks and lose to everyone, but then come to some prestigious competition and compete for the title. It is precisely because of such instability that the Spaniard can not stay in high positions in the ranking.
In recent months, Auger-Aliassime has completely failed. He went from tournament to tournament and lost to everyone. At the moment, the tennis player has gradually come to his senses, but he has hard times ahead, since he has to defend a huge number of rating shackles at the big tournaments. And the tennis player does not have such an experience, so there is a high probability that serious difficulties may arise. Only at this tournament in Rotterdam, the tennis player gradually begins to recover, he again not only confidently delivers, but also compete in the draws.
Auger-Aliassime took into account the mistakes that he made last week in Montpellier, and now plays much better. Only in the first round match did he have some problems. To defeat the German Struff, he had to play three games (6-3, 1-6, 6-3). In other fights, the Canadian played much easier. First, Felix declassified Grigor Dimitrov (6-2, 6-4), and then knocked out Aljaz Bedene (6-4, 7-6).
Before the Australian Open, Felix was one step away from the Adelaide finals. But then Andrey Rublev stopped him. Now the representative of Canada will again fight for access to the decisive match of the competition.
Betting Tips Statistics
- This will be the first in-person meeting of the players.
- At this tournament, Auger-Aliassime lost four times in service. Carreno Busta – six times.
- In Rotterdam, the Canadian’s account has 30 aces.
Bookmakers made Auger-Aliassime a clear favorite, but in fact this is far from the case. Carreno-Busta found his rhythm. He boldly seizes the initiative on the court and tries to force himself to attack. Felix is still less mistaken. In addition, the Canadian has a stronger pitch. All this should bring Felix success. Carreno-Busta acts too bluntly, which, of course, could bring benefits to the 19-year-old player.
We believe that with his confident play on the back line Auger-Allasim will make the opponent make mistakes and will bring the match to victory.
Our prediction is the victory of Felix Auger-Aliassime.
