The Line: -- Over/Under:
Ričardas Berankis will take on Radu Albot at the 2018 ATP Moselle Open.
Ričardas Berankis enters this match having defeated the number 2 seed in the second round. That victory would have given Ričardas Berankis tons of confidence as he managed to outplay Tsitsipas, especially in the third set. In that victory, served exceptionally well as he only allowed his opponent to break his serve on one occasion in the entire match. While Ričardas Berankis struggled to break his opponents serve also, he managed to do enough during Tsitsipas’s service games to get the win. This will be another big challenge for Ričardas Berankis but considering he just got a big win, he will have high hopes.
On the other side of the court, Radu Albot will look to continue his dominant tournament. Radu Albot has won both of his fixtures in straight sets and has looked very comfortable. In the last match, Albot served exceptionally well as he only allowed his opponent to break serve once while he managed to break serve on 4 occasions. Albot is a much higher ranked player than his opponent and with the draw getting easier for him, I am expecting Albot to get a boost and continue his exceptional run of form.
These two players have played twice in the past with Ričardas Berankis and Radu Albot both winning on one occasion.
While Ričardas Berankis had a big win in the second round, I see his tournament ending this match. Radu Albot has been playing the better tennis and considering the fact that Albot is higher ranked than Ričardas Berankis, you would expect only one result. With such a great run of form on his side, I am going to pick Radu Albot to win this match.
