Elliot Benchetrit vs. Lucas Pouille - 2020 Ultimate Tennis Showdown
Saturday, June 13 2020
Its the battle of the Frenchmen in the first round of the Ultimate Tennis Showdown. This is going to be an exciting matchup as a veteran of the game, Lucas Pouille, meets a young Frenchman, Elliot Benchetrit. Who will come out on top, experience, or youth?
Lucas Pouille did not have a great 2019 season and is surely wanting to get back on track. Pouille is a great player, he is fast around the court, he is very strong and he has a lot of experience. Pouille loves playing at the Mourataglou tennis academy and he will feel at home here. If Pouille is able to be on top of his game, it will be a tough day at the office for anyone.
Elliot Benchetrit is relatively new to the ATP Tour, having only played 5 main tour matches, only winning one. Benchetrit is more of a challenger level player, however, he has nothing to lose. Benchetrit is replacing Dominic Thiem in the first weekend of this tournament and therefore will want to give it his all in his little time he will have on the court.
This will be the first encounter between the two players, and although Benchetrit has nothing to lose, it is hard to bet against Pouille who has much more experience. Pouille is a great player when on top of his game, and I am sure he will show up to play on Saturday. Give me Pouille.
Lucas Pouille to win.
