Tennis players did not cross each other on the court, this will be the first official meeting. This season Kasper Ruud played 14 matches on clay, of which he won nine. Lorenzo Sonego won 11 matches in a row on clay.
Ruud was not particularly disappointed as there is a number of clay tournaments ahead, including the Masters in Rome. The Oslo native had one fight in Italy and immediately created a sensation, because he knocked out Karen Khachanov (6-3, 3-6, 6-1).
Kasper showed himself well in the first serve, managed to get six aces, plus he acted more reliably on the back line, so he made it to the 1/16 finals quite fairly.
Sonego simply declassified Nikoloz Basilashvili and did it more than confidently. No matter how hard the Georgian tennis player tried, but the 47-th racket of the world allowed him to take only four games (6-3, 6-1) and this is already a serious indicator.
The bookmakers do not consider the native of Turin to be the favorite of this confrontation, but given his play in the previous meeting, the factor of the home field and the clay, it is not so much the Italian underdog.
It is noticeable that Lorenzo Sonego is trying to keep the bar high and so far he succeeds. The representative of Italy has confidently dealt with Nikoloz Basilashvili and is ready to challenge the opponent from Norway, so we offer a bet on the positive handicap of the 47-th racket of the world.
Our prediction is the victory of Lorenzo Sonego, taking into account the handicap (+4.5) of the game for the odds of 1.57 in BC 1xBet
