Вступление: Since the start of the season Marin Cilic has played 16 matches on hard, ten of which he won. In the last meeting the Croat filed for elimination nine times, while the Spaniard issued two aces. In five previous games Alejandro Davydovich-Fokina won three victories.
It is difficult to win matches against more eminent opponents so far, but Alejandro is only 21 years old and there is room for improvement. At the tournament in Cologne the 71st racket of the world managed to show a good game, as he replaced Emil Ruusuvuori (5-7, 4-6).
Davidovich-Fokina aims to build on his success in the 1/8 finals, although he will have to confront against not simple opponent in the person of Marin Chilic, so he will have to go to court as an outsider.
The failed performance at the Major in New York and the failure at the French Open hit the 32-year-old tennis player's pride, but he decided not to give up, so he came to Cologne.
It took Cilic time to adapt to the hard in Germany, as a result of which he gave one set to Marcos Chiron, but won the meeting (6-2, 4-6, 6-3). As a start, it's not bad, but the level of rivals will grow and the representative of Croatia needs to be ready for this.
Marin Cilic came to Cologne to revive his career, otherwise he has noticeably passed, as he even ended up outside the top 30. The Croatian served well in the previous meeting and if he also plays aggressively, then he has every chance to get to the quarterfinals, which we hope for.
Our prediction is the victory of Marin Cilic for a coefficient of 1.62 in 1xBet.
