Fucsovics vs Berrettini / ATP Sofia – After we saw results of the main draw for the ATP in Sofia we didn’t expect to see Hungarian M. Fucsovics and Italian M. Berrettini in the semi-finals. True, both players had several good results in the previous season but in the upper part of the draw were K. Khachanov, R. Bautista-Agut and F. Verdasco.
Fucsovics vs Berrettini begins 09.02.2019 at 13:00 CET
The previous season was the best for Fucsovics so far in his career. Near the end of the previous year and beginning of this one the Hungarian reached the 35th place in the ATP list, which was at the same time his best rating. The rating went down a bit in the previous month and Fucsovic arrived to Sofia as World no. 47. Fucsovics won the only ATP title in Geneva last year, where he defeated German P. Gojowczyk in the final.
Before the tournament in Sofia Fucsovics played at three tournaments and at each of them was eliminated in the second round. He lost in the second round of tournament in Doha by N. Djokovic, while in Sydney was defeated by Australian J. Milman. B. Coric was impassable obstacle at the Australian Open, who defeated him without dropping a set. Accordingly, it is quite clear that semi-finals in Sofia is at the same time Fucsovics’ best result this season so far.
Berrettini is 22-year old player who reached his best rating near the end of previous year when he was World’s no. 52. Since the beginning of the year the rating didn’t change much and the Italian currently occupies the 53rd place in the ATP list. Berrettini won one ATP title so far, and he won it in Gstaad last season, where he defeated favoured R. Bautista-Agut in the final.
The year didn’t start in the best way for Berrattini whose score is two wins and three defeats, where one of the wins is victory in the Davis Cup. Berrettini reached the semi-final here in Sofia after turning the result up-side down in match with F. Verdasco. The Spaniard was a favourite to win the match and he won the first set in appropriate style, but the Italian didn’t surrender and thanks to excellent first serve he turned the tide.
Fucsovics vs Berrettini PICK
The two players have never met before and this is going to be duel worth of place in the finals of ATP tournament in Sofia. Both players are of similar quality but we cannot be indifferent about Berrettini’s victories over Khachanov and Verdasco, which is why we give a slight advantage to the Italian.
