We scribbled surprised with his game in Montpellier. At that tournament, the Canadian was Denis Shapovalova, Aljaz Beden, Richard Gasquet and David Goffin. But Vasek failed to win the competition, as in the decisive match he lost to Gael Monfils (5-7, 3-6).
It seemed that after such a busy week, Pospisil would surrender his position in Rotterdam. But Vasek managed to surprise again. In the first round, he beat the main favorite of Daniel Medvedev (6-4, 6-3).
True, this ended the forces, and he lost to Filip Krajinovic (4-6, 6-7). Thanks to these results, the representative of Canada climbed to the 98th line of the Asia-Pacific rating.
Ruusuvori approached the first hundred of the rating. Now Emil takes the 101th place. It seems that the 20-year-old Finn decided that he had already outgrown the level of challengers, since recently he has been performing exclusively at more rated competitions. The rating does not give him the opportunity to play in the main grid, so he fights in qualifications.
In Montpellier, Ruusuvori managed to overcome qualifying matches. In the main draw, he even beat Denis Novak. But after that, the representative of Finland lost to Norbert Gombosch.
It is worth noting that in Marseille, Ruusuvori did not win the qualification. In the decisive match, he failed to cope with Yegor Gerasimov (6-4, 6-7, 6-7). But he was lucky, as the organizers gave Emil the status of lucky looser.

Pospisil vs Ruusuvuori Predictions
There is no doubt that I wrote a small favorite, but this is only on paper. After all, everyone knows how unstable the Canadian is. Washek is not even able to hold several tournaments at the same level, so a recession is inevitable. Ruusuvori has already held several matches at this tournament and pleased with a confident game in the draws.
But, Ruusuvori is not yet ready to play at the highest level. He lacks experience and often loses. It is unlikely that the Finnish tennis player will cope with Pospisil.
Wasek now demonstrates his best game in the past few years, so we do not believe in the success of Emil.
