Tennis Pick Match Preview Yuichi Sugita vs Jan Lennard Struff
Our tennis pick for today is Yuichi Sugita vs Jan Lennard Struff, an very intersting match that will be played in ATP – SINGLES: Dubai (United Arab Emirates), hard.
These two players met once in the qualifying stages of ATP Valencia in 2015 when Sugita fought back from a set down to win in three sets. Though Sugita is more consistent with his performances than his German opponent, there isn’t much between these two players at the moment, and anyone could win this.
Yuichi Sugita Tennis Pick
Yuichi Sugita avoided a third consecutive first-round exit and fourth straight defeat with a comfortable win over Ilya Ivashka (7-5 6-1), who was visibly tired after playing six matches at ATP Marseille last week.
This is only the second time Sugita has made it to the second round of a tournament in 2018, having previously made this stage at the Australian Open, where he lost to Ivo Karlovic in a five-set marathon.
Despite playing 11 matches so far in 2018, the World #42 is yet to register back to back wins. The last time he won more than one match in a tournament was at ATP Stockholm in 2017.
Jan Lennard Struff Tennis Pick
Like Yuichi Sugita, Jan Lennard Struff was also going through a three-match losing run, and the straight set win against Andreas Haider Maurer on Tuesday was a much-needed one for the German.
Struff has already played two second-round matches in 2018 but ended up losing on both occasions, at Doha (vs. Gael Monfils) and Australian Open (vs. Roger Federer).
The last time Jan Lennard Struff won a second-round match was at ATP Vienna in 2017 when he defeated Albert Ramos Vinolas in three sets.
