The Line: -- Over/Under:
Belgian tennis superstar, David Goffin is the number 10 seed at the 2018 ATP US Open. David Goffin has made it into the third round of the tournament where he will be playing the exciting Jan-Lennard Struff from Germany. Both of these players are really good to watch and have huge talent so that should ensure we will get a great tennis match.
These two players have played twice before with David Goffin beating Jan-Lennard Struff on both occasions. Both of those matches were on hard courts in 2016 so while the surface is the same, it has been an age. These matches should not be a huge indicator of the result but it does show that Goffin will have much more confidence heading into this match.
Jan-Lennard Struff had to play a long match in the second round as he won his clash in 5 sets. That victory would have been very tiring for the German player and he showed signs of fatigue near the end of the match. There is not much recovery time in the US Open and it will be interesting to see if Jan-Lennard Struff is fully recovered for this clash. This is going to be a very tough match for the German player since he is playing one of the best in the world. Jan-Lennard Struff will need to be at 100% if he wishes to compete.
On the other hand, David Goffin will be fresh and ready for this match having only lost 1 set all tournament. The world number 10 was very dominant in the second round and I expect that form to continue into this match. The Belgian superstar is a far better player than Jan-Lennard Struff and I think he will be good enough to win this match will ease. I see David Goffin winning this match in straight sets.
