Marco Trungelliti vs Marco Cecchinato
|Date & Time||Saturday July 21, 2018, 2:00 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Marco Trungelliti +200/ Marco Cecchinato -250 Over/Under:
Marco Cecchinato is the number 3 seed at the Croatian Open and he has acted the part of a top player all through the tournament. The Italian will be looking to win another ATP title and he will like his chances judging by the players that remain. Marco Cecchinato will be playing in the semifinals where he will take on Argentinian qualifier, Marco Trungelliti. Both players will see this as a big game so I am expecting two committed competitors.
Marco Trungelliti would never have dreamt of making it this far in this tournament. The Argentine was unseeded in qualifying and managed to make it to the main tournament. Once in the main tournament, Marco Trungelliti has impressed everyone as he has beaten many higher ranked players. This will be the biggest test that Marco Trungelliti has faced this tournament as he is playing one of the top players in a match that has huge implications on the tournament.
On the other side of the court, Marco Cecchinato will know that he is the more accomplished player. The Italian won his first ATP title in Hungary this year and has looked very dominant ever since. Marco Cecchinato has looked very strong in this tournament and he has never looked like he was going to lose. His quarterfinal clash was exceptionally noteworthy as he won in straight sets in a very convincing manner. Marco Cecchinato will need to be aware of his opponent since Marco Trungelliti is having a fairytale run but the Italian will be confident he can win.
All in all, I am going to predict that Marco Cecchinato will win this match. The man from Sicily is a top player and I think he will get the job done in Croatia. We are getting a great price wagering on Marco Cecchinato winning so that is the bet I am going to suggest.
