Portuguese player Joao Sousa, number 70, was third on the main board of the tournament in Hertogenbosch, where he scored a semifinals 5 years ago, losing 0-2 against German Benjamin Becker.Sousa comes after two consecutive defeats in the finals of the tournament in Geneva, Switzerland, 0-2 against the 87th world Albert Ramos-Vinolas, respectively in the inaugural Grand Slam of Roland Garros, where he succumbed to 0 -3 in Spanish company Pablo Carreno-Busta.Portugal’s last success in an ATP tournament was recorded more than a year ago in his home country on the Estoril clay when he surpassed the final of the tournament with a 6-4 double even on his opponent by Monday, Frances Tiafoe.
Young French tennis player Tiafoe, number 34 in the ATP hierarchy, is for the first time on the main stage of the grass tournament in Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands.Like his opponent, Tiafoe failed to get past the inaugural tour of the Grand Slam tournament on the Paris clay, being defeated in 5 sets, 2-6, 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 and 6- 0 in the decisive by world number 60, Serbian Filip Krajinovic.Only 16 games played Tiafoe on this kind of surface throughout his career, managing to score in 8 of them, the last success being recorded in the second round of the previous Grand Slam at Wimbledon, when he finished in 4 sets by the French veteran Julien Benneteau.
Tennis Prediction of the Day Joao Sousa vs Frances Tiafoe
I anticipate a balanced duel between two relatively close-minded tennis players, one on the other hand gaining experience throughout the career, the other offsetting this aspect with the desire to affirm. However, for none of them, the surface on which the game will be played is not a strong point, so this time I will bet on the number of games played in the game.
