ATP Geneva Final
Today’s final should be a close contested one with both Grigor Dimitrov and Nicolas Jarry displaying great form to reach the final. In the semi final Jarry beat former world number 2 Alexander Zverev 7-6, 6-3 with an impressive show of consistency. Dimitrov was also impressive in his semi final win beating current world number 9 Taylor Fritz 3-6, 7-5, 7-6 marking his first final in 5 years! Early odds suggest that the Bulgarian is favourite and understandably so as he holds more weapons and more experience, however I feel that Jarry will get a lot of balls in court leading him to a win tomorrow. Head to Head is 1-0 in Jarry’s favour with match taking place on clay in 2019.
ATP Lyon Final
Arthur Fils has impressed everyone, at just 18 years old he keeps on getting better and better week by week with now a final to add to his impressive achievements. In the semi final he beat world number 52 Brandon Nakashima 7-5, 4-6, 7-6 in an epic 2hr and 54 minute battle with the youngster also withstanding cramps. His opponent in the final will be Francisco Cerundolo who was impressive in his semi final win over Cam Norrie only dropping 3 games in a 6-3, 6-0 win and has shown good form in the last weeks. Bookies have the Argentine as heavy favourite and I agree with these odds as his form and experience should be too much for the youngster. My prediction is a straight sets win for Cerundolo.
