Egor Gerasimov vs Sam Querrey
|Date & Time||Wednesday August 1, 2018, 9:00 PM (EDT)|
The Line: -- Over/Under:
ATP Los Cabos has reached the round of 16 stage of the tournament which means that many of the top players will be entering the competition after getting opening-round byes due to their seeding. One of these players is the world number 28, Sam Querrey. The talented American will be taking on Egor Gerasimov from Belarus. Both players are very exciting to watch so I am sure this will be a very entertaining game of tennis.
Egor Gerasimov won his opening round match in straight sets as he beat Australian, Bernard Tomic. The Belarusian player is more often seen on the Challenger seen and I am sure he will be determined to take this opportunity on the ATP stage. Egor Gerasimov is very exciting to watch and has done well over the past year in Challenger tournaments but this is an entirely different level and it will be interesting to see if he can step up and compete. This will be a much harder match for the Belarusian since Sam Querrey is much better than Bernard Tomic.
On the other side of the coin, Sam Querrey will look to win this match easily. The US-based player is the number 5 seed and will know that this is a great chance for him to win an ATP title. This is the first time that Sam Querrey is playing since Wimbledon where he made it to the round of 32. That performance would not have been satisfying for the American as he should have done better and I think he will be determined to do better in this tournament and in the US Open later this month.
As far as this match is concerned, I am going to predict that Sam Querrey will win this match. The American is the better player and I see him beating a much weaker opponent with some comfort.
