4 August early in the morning in Washington on the men’s hard-court tournament category 500 will be played two semi-finals. First start in the decisive match will play good friends Stefanos Zizipus and Nick Kirios.
Tennis players for the first time, intersect in the tour.
The match promises to be very entertaining and interesting, given the current form of the opponents and the ability not just to play, and deliver all tennis fans pleasure beautiful drawings and unusual bumps.
- Stefanos Zizipus
- Nick Kirios
- The coefficients and forecast
20-year-old Greek conduct cool season. Now Stefanos is in the sixth spot in the world rankings, having made the leap from the beginning of the year to nine positions.
On hard he will play for the fourth semifinal this season. For the first time to be at this stage Zizipus came at the Open championship of Australia, sensationally knocked out of the tournament in the 1/8 finals of Roger Federer. But have not found the arguments in the match against Rafa Nadal, losing in three sets devastating account of 2-6,4-6,0-6. Following two semi-finals Stefanos won in Marseille at the Goffin and Dubai have Monfis. Then took the title at the first tournament and the second capitulated to Federer.
Also worth noting on the ground the title of Greek in Estoril, finals of Madrid and Rome semi-finals. On the grass Ziziphus was not so good, only played in the quarterfinals of Queen’s Club. Then unexpectedly lost at the start of the Wimbledon Italian of Fabbiano.
Here Stefanos received the first issue of sowing and until fully justified that status, winning three dry victories over the Floor, Thompson and Peer.
Greek second time coming to Washington and will perform again in the semifinals. Last season he lost at this stage Sasha Zverev.
The Australian showman pleasantly surprised the whole tennis world at this tournament, demonstrating on the court not only circus jokes, but very smart game. Kirios has a chance to get to the second final this season. In early March, Nick won the only title in 2019, the year after winning the tournament in Acapulco. And I figured there on the net from Nadal, Wawrinka, Izner and Sasha Zverev.
In Washington, Cigs not yet lost a single set, after the French universal Gilles Simon and the Japanese runner of Nihito Nishioka.
Kirios is now only on the 52nd place in the ranking, is clearly taking place not according to his skills and class.
The coefficients and forecast
A very tough opposition in the definition of favorite. Moreover, if you start solely from the game shows both players in the previous matches at this tournament. While neither the Greek nor Australian had not lost a single set, which indicates excellent shape and portends an exciting match.
The bookies give a slight advantage, of course, Zizipus, offering to bet on his victory in the coefficient of 1.81 on Kiros – for 2.1.
Think quotation is justified taking into account the current positions in the rankings and stability for the game and the results in 2019 year. In addition, the guys have held no meetings and it is not easy to say who will quickly find the way to victory, using your strengths I. pushing a weak opponent.
Definitely would not venture here to put on the odds or the outcome, because most likely the fate of the match will be decided on tipakh. And, as we know is a lottery.
So I suggest to stop the choice in terms of the forecast for the three option sets for great odds from the bookies.
