|Date & Time||Monday August 6, 2018, 5:00 PM (EDT)|
The Line: -- Over/Under:
2018 Rogers Cup is set to begin and we can expect some great tennis matches. This is the biggest tennis tournament in Canada and this results in many big names playing in the tournament. In the opening round of the tournament, we should expect a great game as David Goffin takes on local hero, Milos Raonic. Both players are exceptionally skillful and entertaining so we should see a very exciting tennis match.
It has been a tough few months for David Goffin as the Belgian superstar has failed to make any notable runs in many months. This is something that Goffin will be determined to change with the US Open only weeks away. As it currently stands, David Goffin is the 11th best player in the world and he will know that he needs to win some tournaments if he wishes to break back into the top 10. This will be a great chance for David Goffin to make a statement since the Rogers Cup is a big event and winning is associated with lots of prestige.
Milos Raonic, on the other hand, will be determined to win this tournament. This is the Canadians home ATP event and he will know that he has the crowd behind him. It has been a tough few years for the Canadian as he has fallen from the top of the tennis world due to factors such as injury. That being said, Milos Raonic seems like he is now back to 100% fitness and will be determined to ensure that he can get some big results to return to the top. This will be a tough game for the Canadian but at home, he will like his chances.
I am going to side with Milos Raonic winning. While David Goffin is a terrific player, I think Milos Raonic will have enough to win in Canada. This is a very important tournament for Milos Raonic and I think he will show that by getting this big win.
