|Date & Time||Sunday August 5, 2018, 3:00 PM (EDT)|
The Line: -- Over/Under:
Argentine superstar, Juan Martín del Potro, has lived up to his reputation in Mexico as he has made it to the final of the ATP Los Cabos Open. At this stage of the tournament, Juan Martín del Potro will take on the incredibly talented Italian player, Fabio Fognini. These two players are the number 1 and number 2 seeds and they have both performed at a high level to get to this stage of the tournament. This is a big game for both players since the title is only one win away so I am expecting a hard-fought tennis match.
Fabio Fognini has been really impressive over the past few months as he won the ATP Swedish Open less than a month ago. The Italian has been one of the best players on the tour this season and he will feel that he needs to cash in and win titles while he is playing well. This has been a very good tournament for Fabio Fognini as he has only lost one set in the entire event. That being said, this is the hardest match that Fabio Fognini will face in the tournament and it will be interesting to see if the Italian can lift his game to beat Juan Martín del Potro.
As far as Juan Martín del Potro is concerned, he will feel that he is due a title win. The Argentine last won an ATP title in March and that is a long time considering how well Juan Martín del Potro has been playing since. This tournament showed the quality for the Argentine as he cruised past every opponent he faced. Juan Martín del Potro is yet to lose a set in the tournament. Fabio Fognini will be the first test for Juan Martín del Potro but the Argentine will know that this is a match that is winnable.
This is not an easy match to predict but I am going to side with Juan Martín del Potro winning. The Argentine is the better player and I think he will be able to outclass Fabio Fognini in this match.
