Today have very interesting events from Shanghai-Masters, Round of 16, China. Rafael Nadal and Fabio Fognini will face off against each other for the 13th time. We expect to be witnesses on a spectacular time. It is always a pleasure to watch both players when playing against each other.
Currently, the Spaniard rocket is in the top position, while the Italian rocket stays on the 28th position in ATP World Ranking. Both players have a grand history behind them. They have played 12 head to head games as nine of all those events are winning by “the King of Clay”, while Fognini beat his rivals just three times in his career.
Rafael Nadal plays lots of times in this tournament and we believe in that he will be more focus and concentrate to beat his rival in straight sets. Yesterday Nadal beat his rival from this tournament in straight sets and this gives us a reason to think that he is an ability to win again, because, against Jared Donaldson, Nadal showed an amazing performance as he beat him under 18.5 Games. He is more accurate and precision service than his rival. We are backing to under 19.5 games with 1.80 odds at Sportingbet.
Yesterday, Philipp Kohlschreiber did an amazing game as he beat Facundo Bagnis in three sets and we were right about the favourite in this game but we were wrong that the game can finish in straight sets. The German Rockets has not fully recovered after injured in ATP Hamburg. He felt some pain.
We continue to follow ATP Kitzbuhel, Austria and the game which we choose is going to be between the players of Milan Zekic and Fabio Fognini. According to the bookmakers, the absolute favourite in this game is an Italian Rocket and we agree with them about their viewpoint. Milan Zekic from Serbia currently stays on the 316th position in ATP World Ranking. We have noticed that Fognini sometimes underestimated his rivals and when he lost the first set after that he can overturn the game to his advantage.
As we know Fabio Fognini is a great talent but he lost all his opportunities to developing in tennis sphere. The Serbian Rocket showed a solid and amazing performance in this competition and we expect Fabio Fognini to have difficulty with this rival, but in the end, he will win and this can happen in three sets as well that is why our opinion is Over 19.5 Games. The Game Line is lower than 22 Games and we really hope Milan Zekic to show us his skills in this amazing contest.
As we can see yesterday Fabio Fognini did again another interesting game against the player Gombos. The Italian Rocket loses first set with huge game margin 6:1. But after all, Fognini was control his nervous and won the game in three sets.
We continue to follow the Italian Rocket and today he will face Ernests Gulbis for the fourth time. As we can see Gulbis dominate with victories over Fognini. The game is Quarterfinal in ATP Gstaad Switzerland. We also can say truly that Gulbis has a huge potential to be a top player if he wants to. 2-3 years ago he was completely outclassing each player, he was one of the most uncomfortable players for the big 20. Now he can win against anyone and he can lose by anyone. But each time we see him on odds around 1.90 or more it is a value bet to go and search him to win the game.
Now against Fabio Fognini, it will be a real battle. We really do not like Fognini, who is one of the nervous players in ATP. Ernests is able of playing on a high level for the whole game, moreover if the game continues in three sets. On clay, Gulbis is very good player, definitely better than the other courts' styles but it will be really hard against Fognini, who is thirsty for wins.
After bad unsuccessful losses yesterday. Today, from 383 events, we found just one of the most interesting games to predict and make a preview. Round of 16 in ATP Gstaad in Switzerland is between the Slovakian Rocket - Norbert Gombos and Fabio Fognini from Italy.
Fabio Fognini never played before that in this competition and this is a new challenge for him after the disappointed lose against Rublev as he lost the game in three sets. Fabio Fognini currently is in 31st position, while Gombos is on the 87th position in ATP World Ranking. Against each other, they never played before that. Fabio is a solid and stable player, but he has e problem with his nervous and he can’t control himself.
Norbert Gombos from the beginning of the season, he won 12 games and lose just 10 games on clay. We expect the Slovakian Rocket to surprise us in a tough game against the player who is not in good condition. Fognini is a very dangerous player because he is a very unpredictable player. We believe that he has all the chances to win а set. Anyway, today we think that Norbert will take this game, but it will be extremely hard and difficult. Our final prediction in this game is Over 20.5 Games.
