Andujar vs Simon begins 13.04.2019 at 15:00 CET
We need to remind that Andujar is the title defender in Marrakech where he defeated K. Edmund in the final last season by 2-0 in sets. The Spaniard had only occasionally made a noteworthy result and as a rule it was always related to ATP Tour 250 tournaments which were played on clay courts. These facts are strong indicator that we mustn’t underestimate Andujar in the finish of tournament in Marrakech.
Andujar currently occupies the 70th place in the ATP list, which is far from his best rating that he held in 2015 when he was World’s no. 32. Andujar won four ATP titles in his career, all four on clay courts. He hadn’t made a noteworthy result before the tournament in Marrakech this season, and he won just one match and lost four.
We wrote about Simon’s results in our previous analysis when he faced T. Daniel in the quarter-finals. We will now tell more about how the match unfolded and went through statistics that affected the final result. The French was regarded as a favourite to win the match and he confirmed predictions on the court. Simon won without dropping a set 6-4, 7-5.
It was interesting that Simon trailed behind in both sets; he lost two times his service games at the beginning of sets. However, even that didn’t held Daniel to win at least one set so a better result was out of question. The Japanese player didn’t handle the pressure well and couldn’t maintain the result advantage, while experienced Simon was able to punish each Daniel’s mistake. Statistics doesn’t show much and the French had slight domination in the 1st serve points won category.
Andujar vs Simon PICK
The two players met three times so far and Andujar won two matches and Simon one. Far more important fact is that Simon triumphed on hard surface, while Andujar won both times on clay courts. Besides, Andujar eliminated F. Delbonis and P. Kohlschreiber on his way to the semi-finals, which is good enough reason to give him a slight advantage in this match.
Pick: Andujar wins
Odds: 2.10 at bet365 (down to 2.00 can be played)
