The Line: -- Over/Under:
Swiss tennis superstar, Roger Federer has continued his good form by making the third round at Wimbledon. At this stage of the tournament, Roger Federer is set to play against Lucas Pouille from France.
Roger Federer had a comfortable win in the previous round as he defeated Jay Clarke in straight sets. During the victory, Roger Federer served exceptionally. Federer hit 10 aces and had a first serve percentage of close 70%. Roger Federer won 85% of his service points which resulted in him winning all of his service games. The receiving was also impressive from Federer as he won 4 return games.
Roger Federer has been in outstanding form as the Swiss master won the Halle Open prior to arriving at Wimbledon. Federer has won Wimbledon 8 occasions and he is looking like a real contender to win his 9th title.
On the other side of the coin, Lucas Pouille also won his previous match in straight sets. Pouille also served well during his victory as the Frenchman won 82% of his service points which allowed him to win 100% of his service games. Pouille also won 4 return games during the victory.
Pouille has a decent record at Wimbledon as he made the quarterfinals in 2016. This is expected to be a very tough match for the Frenchman since he is playing against the number 2 seed.
Roger Federer and Lucas Pouille have played each other once in the past. The match was played in 2014 at the Paris Masters where Roger Federer won in straight sets.
Lucas Pouille has had a very good season and he has impressed many critics with his performances. Pouille made the semifinals at the Australian Open and that shows the Frenchman’s ability to handle big occasions. That being said, I see Lucas Pouille losing this match. Roger Federer is on another level to Pouille and the Swiss master has been playing outstanding tennis. Federer looked in total control in his previous match and I see him easily beating Lucas Pouille in this match.
