Tennis Handicap Betting Preview – Wed 18th Feb ATP Marseille by @DavAulak

Jerzy Janowicz v David Goffin

Jerzy Janowicz reached the Final of the tournament in Montpellier, but he had to withdraw after just three games because of an illness. He should have had enough time to get ready for this tournament in Marseille and I expect he can give David Goffin a tough First Round match.

Jerzy Janowicz

 

Goffin was one of the stars of the Challenger circuit during the middle of the 2014 season which gave him a lot of confidence that he did bring onto the main Tour, but the start of 2015 has been difficult for him. There is more expectation on the Belgian player and that might be putting more pressure on him to perform and resulted in some disappointing results so far this season.

He will have a tough time dealing with the Janowicz serve if the Polish player is on his game and Goffin recently was beaten by Gilles Muller on the indoor hard courts and this match may have a similar feel. I can see tie-breakers being required to separate the players, although Janowicz is also capable of putting together a string of winners off the Goffin serve to earn a break or two during the match.

That might actually give the Pole the chance to win this match outright and I think this might be a generous amount of games for Janowicz to take.

HANDICAP PICK: Jerzy Janowicz + 2.5 Games @ 1.8 with Bet365

Price correct at time of writing.

David Ferrer v Daniel Gimeno-Traver

David Ferrer was a little beat up at the Australian Open and the Spaniard continues to slip from the top of the men’s game, although he is still capable of producing the tennis he has become known for. He did win the title in Doha, but the lay off could have an affect and give Daniel Gimeno-Traver a chance to perhaps spring a surprise.

And it would be a surprise if the veteran Spaniard who now produces his best tennis on the Challenger circuit is going to beat David Ferrer in this First Round match. The Gimeno-Traver serve is something of a weakness and he is going to have work very hard to keep holding and I think that pressure will eventually crack his chances in this one.

David Ferrer

Ferrer is unlikely to take any point off and will make Gimeno-Traver really earn every point he is to win and it will be tough on the clay courts to maintain the rallies if Ferrer is on form. The last few years has seen Ferrer come off the lay off between the Australian Open and the Golden Swing in South America in impressive form as he has won titles in that situation. He has also made a fast start in those tournaments for the main part and Ferrer should be in a position to get clear of Gimeno-Traver in this one.

A tight first set is expected, but Ferrer should pull away for a 64, 62 win in this one.

HANDICAP PICK: David Ferrer – 5.5 Games

Prices correct at time of writing.
