Alex De Minaur – John Millman Match Prediction | 25-09-2019 05:30

This match promises to contain long rallies, with big serving from the Italian. Both players have looked very strong this week, especially Seppi, who put in a brilliant display of tennis to defeat #1 seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in the quarterfinals in a tight three setter. Seppi won over 70% of the points on both his first and second serve and fired down fifteen aces. Schwartzman also went the distance in his quarterfinal, needing a final-set tiebreak to defeat Yoshihito Nishioka. The first semifinal on Ken Rosewall Arena promises to be a very tough match to call. This is the first meeting between the players, and the rankings suggest that Schwartzman is the favorite. However, if the Italian serves as well as he did against Tsitsipas, then he will be very hard to stop.

De Minaur won his second ATP Tour title in Atlanta before losing in his first match in Washington to Peter Gojowczyk. Evans made the quarterfinals of Atlanta, and while he lost early in Washington, he made it through qualifying in Montreal without dropping a set. Alex de Minaur and Dan Evans duel in the first round of the Rogers Cup.

This means de Minaur could be forced to generate his own pace, which could lead to over-hitting. De Minaur should be strong favourite in this match if he continues his strong form and carries out his usual game-plan. However, if he gets bogged down in the rallies by Simon, he will be forced to be patient and wait for his opportunity. This match promises to showcase a contrast in style, with de Minaur looking to be aggressive and attack and the Frenchman looking to force errors from his opponent by consistently hitting up the middle of the court and taking the pace off the ball. Another factor will be the lack of pace on the ball from the Frenchman.

Both players will hang in points and wait for their opportunity to strike and neither have particularly big games. Goffin leads the head to head 3-0, including a 2-0 lead on hard courts. However, one of those meetings was a five-setter at the US Open, with Goffin winning 6-3 in the fifth after nearly 4.5 hours. I look for Goffin to goad Pella into going too big on his groundstrokes and bounce back from his early defeat in Washington. Pella is not as comfortable on hard courts as Goffin and this was apparent in Los Cabos, despite Pella picking up a couple wins.

Head to Head: never playedJohn Millman takes on Feliciano Lopez in the first round of the Rogers Cup. Millman is into the main draw as a lucky loser after falling in a huge battle to Kwon in Montreal qualifying. Millman is known for his ability to hang in rallies and fighting back. Lopez qualified for Montreal, but got lucky in the sense that Ivo Karlovic pulled out of the final qualifying round. However, in the first round, he had an impressive straight sets win over Gregoire Barrere. He should be able to fight off a lot of Lopezs shots and wear the Spaniard down. While Millman is a lucky loser, I think that this is a pretty good matchup for him. These two have never played before. On a hot day in Montreal, Millman will be a huge test for Lopezs fitness, as he is 37 years old. This match will come down to whether Lopez is able to hit through Millmans defenses.

BIG 4 H2H

The young Aussie showed class and maturity in delivering a strong performance against fellow countryman Jordan Thompson in the quarterfinal. Simon recorded an impressive victory in a final set tiebreak, in a match that finished in the early hours of Friday morning. Under the lights on Ken Rosewall Arena, the second semifinal between Alex de Minaur and Gilles Simon takes center stage. Simon, on the other hand, had a much tougher contest against John Millman. Their match that was moved to Show Court 1 because of the rain delay.

If the Argentinian can get into the Italians service games early on in the match, then he will be strong favourite. The match will be won and lost on whether Schwartzman can return Seppis serve effectively. In the rallies, it is evenly matched, however I give the advantage to Schwartzman in this area as he is a little more consistent than the Italian.

a common void bet occurs in tennis when a player retires through injury. This happens when a match is suspended, posponed, or cancelled e.g. Void bets occur when the bet is not decided as a win or loss and the stake is returned to the player. Note: bookmakers' policies on voided matches changes so we always recommend players to check the specific terms of bookmakers they bet with to ensure they understand under what circumstances they void bets.

Today, I think that John has a good chance to win because he is in the excellent form. John is 79th player on atp rank, this year he has 5-1 indoors, 4-7 on clay, 2-4 on grass and 12-14 on hard court. ATP Zhuhai, 1st round, the match between Alex and John. Alex played the last match in round of 16 on US Open. John is in the excellent form after the title on ch Kaohsigung last week where he was better than Polmans in two sets. Alex is 31th player on atp rank, this year he has 1-4 on clay, 2-3 on grass and 20-8 on hard court.

Evans will be looking to effectively use his backhand slice, while De Minaur will look to try to counterpunch. De Minaur leads the head to head 1-0, winning a grass court Challenger final over Evans last season. Theres not much between these two players, so its difficult to pick a winner. Evans can get volatile on court, so its certainly possible that De Minaurs speed and counterpunching ability will start to agitate Evans.

Fritz is in the much better form and has been serving huge and hitting his forehand really well in recent matches. Both players will be looking to take control of the point early and utilize first-strike tennis. Fritz leads the head to head 1-0, winning their only meeting on the grass in Eastbourne this season.

It may be something stemming from his insecurities, or its just a mental block. He reached the Round of 16 for the first time in his career in the Grand Slams and this will unlock a whole new flow of confidence. The 20-year-old kid is actually better than most young players on tour but he has confidence problems. Alex de Minaur finally made it count in a Grand Slam.
