Thomas Fabbiano vs Damir Dzumhur
|Date & Time||Wednesday August 1, 2018, 8:00 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Thomas Fabbiano +137/ Damir Dzumhur -188 Over/Under:
Damir Dzumhur is ranked as the 24th best player in the world and I am sure he will look to show that worth in Mexico as the Bosnian opens his campaign at the ATP Los Cabos Open. He will be taking on Thomas Fabbiano from Italy in the round of 16 of the tournament. Both players will look to use this tournament as preparation for the US Open so we can expect 100% commitment from everyone involved.
Thomas Fabbiano had a very impressive Wimbledon campaign as he made it into the quarterfinals. His Wimbledon run included a win over Stan Wawrinka. That performance will have given the Italian tons of confidence as he heads into this tournament. That was shown in the opening round as he won his round of 32 match in 3 sets. The Italian went one set down but showed great fight as he came back to win. This will be a much harder match for Thomas Fabbiano and it will be interesting to see if he can continue his form from Wimbledon.
In contrast to Thomas Fabbiano, Damir Dzumhur had a very poor Wimbledon campaign as he was eliminated in the second round. Things have not looked good for the Bosnian superstar as he has failed to win a match since Wimbledon. The world number 24 will know that things must improve before the US Open and this is a great chance for him to do well. It is unclear how Damir Dzumhur lost his form as he won an ATP title before Wimbledon and The Bosnian will look to return to that form as soon as possible. This is a game that Damir Dzumhur will expect to win.
Even with Damir Dzumhur in bad form, I am still going to back him winning. He is the better player and I think he will turn things around. We are getting a decent price wagering on Damir Dzumhur winning so that is the bet which I am going to suggest.
