March 14: Inter Milan to beat Torino & over 2.5 goals @ $2.00 ✅
Marton Fucsovics has been in fine form over the last few weeks and I’m liking his chances to continue his good run in the opening round of ATP Dubai on Monday against Vasek Pospisil – but it could go the distance.
Fucsovics has started the season in strong fashion, beating Stan Wawrinka to reach the third round of the Australian Open before qualifying for the ATP 500 main draw in Rotterdam, where he would go on to make the final, going down to an on-fire Andrey Rublev.
The Hungarian went on to win two matches to advance into the quarter-finals in Doha last week, but he decided to withdraw due to fatigue. After a few days rest, Fucsovics should be ready to pick up where he left off.
Meanwhile, Pospisil has had some unlucky draws to kick-start 2021, running into Daniil Medvedev in the opening round of the Australian Open and facing compatriot Denis Shapovalov in the second round of Doha last week.
Pospisil had a solid finish to last season in reaching the final of Sofia, where he fell in a deciding set tiebreak to Jannik Sinner. The Canadian should enjoy the Dubai hardcourt and will look to dictate with his serve and forehand.
Fucsovics has won both of their previous encounters, the last of which came at the end of 2020 on the hardcourt of the Paris Masters. Fucsovics prevailed in three sets and I can see a similar match playing out here.
Pospisil has certainly been playing well enough recently to take a set, but Fucsovics is in better form and once he sinks his teeth into the match, he should be able to finish it off.
- Fucsovics has won both of his previous meetings with Pospisil
- Fucsovics won in three sets in Paris at the end of 2020
- Fucsovics has won eight of his last nine matches
- It’s taken Rublev and Raonic to beat Fucsovics in his last two tournaments
