Tournament: ATP. Wimbledon.
On the 5th of July we will face the match of the servebots that will be held between Reilly Opelka and Milos Raonic. So, who will be more reliable?
Opelka continues to surprise. After an easy victory over Stebe (6-3, 7-6, 6-1), Reilly has passed over Stan Wawrinka (7-5, 3-6, 4-6, 6-4, 8-6). It seemed that after the third set the outcome of the meeting is predetermined. But the American has managed to mobilize and scratch out a win over more eminent opponent.
In the last match Opelka has made 23 serves. However, at the same time the American has made 38 unforced errors. But if to consider that the rivals have played five sets, then, probably, it isn’t much.
During the previous seasons Reilly was playing awfully on Wimbledon. But this time everything can change.
Raonic hasn’t lost any game on Wimbledon yet. In the last matches Milos destroyed Prajnesh Gunneswaran (7-6, 6-4, 6-2) and Robin Haase (7-6, 7-5, 7-6).
The Canadian had some problems with serves as for two matches he only once has allowed the rival to convert a break point. In the match against the Netherlands tennis player the Canadian has got 23 aces. If Raonic continues this way, then it will be very difficult to cope with him.
In 2018 Milos reached the ¼ final of Wimbledon where he didn’t sustain firefight with John Isner. He conceded in four sets.
The tennis players haven’t played with each other yet.
Opelka has won 6 matches on grass court for his career. Raonic – 51.
In the previous match Opelka has won over Wawrinka, but the Swiss never well did well on the grass. This time the American will be playing against the master of the game on this court surface. Considering the gaming style of tennis players, most likely, the outcome of the meeting will be decided on tie-breaks. Raonic plays in such situations better. For example, in this season he won 66% of tie-breaks on the grass.
In this regard we consider that the Canadian will win. Most likely, he won’t give more than one set to the rival.
