Marius Copil vs Roger Federer
|Date & Time||Sunday October 28, 2018, 6:00 PM (EDT)|
The Line: -- Over/Under:
Romanian player, Marius Copil will play the Swiss Master, Roger Federer, in the final of the 2018 ATP Swiss Indoors in Basil.
Marius Copil has had an incredible tournament and he continued his impressive run as he beat world number 5, Alexander Zverev is the semifinals. During that victory, Copil served exceptionally well as he hit 26 aces and won all of his service games. This is only the second time that Marius Copil has made the final of an ATP event with his previous appearance occurring at this season’s ATP Sofia Open. Copil’s previous final ended in defeat and while that loss would have given the Romanian confidence for this match, it will be very hard for him to compete against the world number 3.
On the other side of the court, Roger Federer will attempt to win another title at his hometown. This is the 15th time Federer has made the final of this event and in his extraordinary career, he has won this title 8 times. Federer is the reigning champion at this event and it seems like he is impossible to beat in front of his home fans in Basel. Roger Federer won his semifinal match with ease as he defeated Daniil Medvedev in straight sets. It was a dominant performance by Federer as he won all of his service games while winning 5 return games to win easily.
This will be the first time that Marius Copil and Roger Federer play each other.
While Marius Copil has played well this tournament, I can’t see him competing with Federer. Roger Federer is always an exceptional player but at the Swiss Indoors, he can’t be beaten. Federer is much more accomplished and skilled when compared to Copil meaning I see the Swiss Master winning this match and lifting his 9th Swiss Indoors title.
