Tennis Prediction of the Day Yuichi Sugita vs Viktor Troicki
Yuichi Sugita is the favorite of this match, being in top form this start of the year, passing in the first round without any problem with Fabbiano.
Viktor Troicki is no longer tennis player 10 years ago, but he can make good matches. Here he has already passed 3 laps, including qualifications, generally being solid even on the job.
As a number of double mistakes he has 2 with Nicola Kuhn, 3 with Evgeny Karlovskiy and 2 with Nagal.
Besides being temperamental sometimes he loses his concentration at work.
So I think Troicki will make over 1.5 double mistakes, my prediction going to this idea at a bet offered by Betano.
