The Line: -- Over/Under:
We have reached the final of the ATP Swedish Open. This has been a great tournament with some top quality tennis but we only have one match left and that is to decide who will walk away with the trophy. The final will be between the third seed, Fabio Fognini from Italy, and the fourth seed, Richard Gasquet from France. Both players have been on the big stage before so we should expect a top-level tennis match.
Fabio Fognini has looked very dominant this tournament and is showing why he is one of the top players in the world. The Italian has been playing good tennis recently and 2018 has been one of his best calendar years as he has already won an ATP title. The title he won was the ATP Brazil Open in March and it has been a very good run for the Italian ever since. This is a great chance for Fognini to win another title and push for a spot in the top 10. It will not be easy but he will enter the match with lots of confidence.
On the other side of the court, Richard Gasquet will feel that he has what it takes to win. The French superstar has been a top tennis player for a long time and he will feel that his experience will get him far. Gasquet is known for his elegant strokes and he has shown that all tournament, especially in his victory against Casper Ruud in the quarterfinals. This will be the toughest test the Frenchman has faced in Sweden and it will be interesting to see if he has what it takes to beat Fabio Fognini.
While Richard Gasquet is a top player, I am going to go against the Frenchman and predict Fabio Fognini. The Italian has looked very good and he has been the star performer in this tournament. 2018 has been Fabio Fognini’s year and I expect that to continue as he secures his second ATP title of the season.
