ATP New York: Jordan Thompson vs Andreas Seppi live stream, preview, prediction
In the last quarterfinal of February 15 in New York, Jordan Thompson will try to beat Andreas Seppi. Will the Australian succeed? – read in our forecast.
A year ago, Thompson reached the quarterfinals of this tournament. Then John Isner stopped him. Now there is no American, so Jordan can significantly improve his result. He took the first steps for this, beating Ivo Karlovich (6-3, 7-6) and that same Isner (7-6, 6-7, 6-3). Thus, the Australian took revenge for that defeat.
It is worth noting that before this tournament, Thompson played not in the best way, since he lost 3 of 4 matches.
Seppi surprised with his game in this tournament. Prior to this, the Italian played not in the best way and even in Dallas lost the 232nd racket of the world rating to Yuri Rodionov and 261st in the rating to American Aragon.
Andreas performed much better in New York. In the first round, the representative of Italy dealt with Damir Jumhur (6-3, 1-6, 7-6), and in the second round Steve Johnson (7-6, 6-3) passed.
It is worth noting that Seppi has never played in this tournament. This is his first trip to this competition.
In full-time meetings, the score is 2-0 in favor of Seppi.
In the last match Andreas beat Jordan in three games.
Thompson played well in the match against Isner. Despite the 22 aces of the American, he not only survived, but also pulled out a victory. The Australian has now gained an excellent game form, so he has good chances to win the first confrontation with Seppi. We think the time has come.
Our prediction is the victory of Jordan Thompson for a coefficient of 1.84 in BC Fonbet
