Fucsovics vs Raonic begins 14.06.2019 at 11:00 CET
Fucsovics is another player out of quite large number of those who improved their best rating this season. The Hungarian had the best rating in his career at the beginning of March 2019 when he occupied the 31st place in the ATP list. His rating went down significantly before the tournament in Stuttgart and right now the Hungarian is World’s no. 52.
Fuscovics won one title in his career and he did so in Geneva last year where he defeated P. Gojowczyk in the final. He had a great chance to win a title in Sofia this season but he lost to D. Medvedev in the final. This season Fuscovics won 15 and lost the same number of matches. Regarding his results on grass courts made last year it should be sufficient to mention win/loss ratio of 1-3.
Raonic has skipped the entire clay season but that is not a big drawback since we know that the Canadiaon never make good results on this type of surface. Now, it is the grass season and he makes much better results on fast surfaces. The main reason for that is his strong service that comes to prominence on this type of surface. Good example of that is match with Tsonga in the previous round when Raonic had 22 aces.
The Canadian currently occupies the 18th place in the ATP list, which is relatively far from his best rating that he held near the end of 2016 when he was World’s no. 3. Raonic won eight ATP titles in his career so far out of which the last one in Brisbane 2016 when he defeated R. Federer in the final. We should add that Raonic defends the final in Stuttgart, which he lost to R. Federer last year.
Fucsovics vs Raonic PICK
The two players met just once before, right here in Stuttgart but in 2018. Raonic won by sound 6-2, 6-4. It is hard to expect that Raonic will again win with such dominance as Fuscovics has made a solid progress in the previous year. However, despite that the Canadian is a favourite to win and he should reach the semi-finals.
Pick: Raonic wins
