The Line: -- Over/Under:
Swiss tennis master, Roger Federer has made the quarterfinals of the 2019 ATP Dubai Tennis Championships in the UAE. Roger Federer will now face Márton Fucsovics from Hungary
Márton Fucsovics enters this match having won his previous fixture in straight sets against Jay-Lennard Struff. It was a very solid display by Fucsovics as he won 72% of his first serve points which allowed him to win all of his service games. In addition to his service, Márton Fucsovics also had a good match receiving serve as he won 44% of his receiving points which resulted in him winning 3 break points. That being said, this is going to be a very tough match for Márton Fucsovics as he is playing against a great player in Federer.
Roger Federer has continued his exceptional record at ATP Dubai by winning his previous match in 3 sets against Fernando Verdasco. Federer is very tough to beat at this venue and the Swiss master has been proving that for decades as he has won this tournament on 7 occasions. In his most recent match at ATP, Federer displayed all his class as he won 93% of his service games and 18% of his return games to set up an easy win. Federer looks in good form and that will make it very tough for the rest of the field.
Márton Fucsovics and Roger Federer have played once in the past. That match was played in 2018 at the Australian Open where Roger Federer won in straight sets.
Looking at this match, I am going to pick Roger Federer to win. Federer is a much stronger player and the Swiss master is very hard to beat at ATP Dubai. With all the information leading to one result, I am expecting Federer to win this match with some ease.
