The Line: -- Over/Under:
The ATP Cincinnati Open has reached the stage of the tournament where only 4 players remain. At this stage, Swiss master, Roger Federer will take on the talented David Goffin from Belgium. These are two of the best players in the world of tennis and it is always a treat when they play against each other. The past matches between these two superstars have been great and I am expecting another top contest in this fixture. A spot in the final is at stake so I am expecting both players to be at the top of their game.
Historically, Roger Federer has the better record when these two players have met in the past. The Swiss superstar has won 6 out of the 7 matches they have played at ATP tournaments. This will give Federer lots of confidence since he knows he will be playing someone who he has beaten many times in the past. Roger Federer is a legend of the game and he has shown his class all the way through this tournament. With the US Open starting in less than 10 days, Federer will be keen to get an ATP title under his belt to build momentum. This should mean we will see the Swiss master at the top of his game in this match.
On the other side of the coin, David Goffin will look to eliminate one of the best players of all time. Goffin won the last time these two players met which was an ATP final in 2017. This showed that Goffin is good enough to beat the world number 2 and he will look to repeat that feat once more. That being said, it will not be easy beating Federer this time around since the Swiss master looks in exceptional form.
All in all, I am picking Roger Federer to win this match. The Swiss master is a superstar in all regards. He is playing very well and I don’t see him losing.
