Lucas Pouille – Jo-Wilfried Tsonga Match Prediction | 22-09-2019 09:30

Eyeing a ninth Wimbledon title, Federer recently triumphed for the 10th time in Halle to set himself up nicely for success in SW19. Unlike Nadal, Federer has not been required to get out of second gear. The 37-year-old Swiss eased past Lloyd Harris and British wild card Jay Clarke in the first two rounds (although he actually surrendered the opening set to Clarke).

Other notable matches on Day 6 include No. Auger-Aliassime). 12 seed Fabio Fognini of Italy taking on American Tennys Sandgren. Italian Matteo Berrettini, the No. Schwartzman prevailed in their only FedEx ATP Head2Head meeting this year in Rome, but Berrettini is in top grass-court form after winning the MercedesCup last month (d. 17 seed, takes on No. 24 seed Diego Schwartzman of Argentina. Both men scored dramatic five-set wins on Thursday to reach the third round.

The 34-year-old is a shadow of his former self right now, plagued by injuries and struggling at No. 72 in the world. Of course, Nadal was making a quick turnaround following his sixth French Open title and Tsonga was at his peak in those days. Their only previous grass-court contest came eight years ago at Queens Club, where the Frenchman got the job done 6-7(3), 6-4, 6-1. The head-to-head series stands at 8-4 in Nadals favor, a respectable record for Tsonga relative to the Spaniards dominance of most players.

Johnson, on the other hand, needed five sets to edge Alex de Minaur on Thursday. The Japanese world No. This match is Nishikoris to losewhich he wont. 7 completely dominated his first two opponents, which is critical for his chances later in the tournament since his body is prone to break down and spending any unnecessary amount of time on court can prove to be disastrous.

Rickys Picks For Day 6 At Wimbledon 2019 Nadal vs. Tsonga And Federer vs. Pouille And More

So far in Metz, he managed to beat Pablo Andujar, Pierre-Hugues Herbert and the second seed Nikoloz Basilashvili (the Georgian retired down 1-4 in the third set). Hes on a comeback trail following multiple injuries and for the first time in months, things are going well are for him. The Frenchman is on an eight-match winning streak, including a Challenger Tour title in Cassis two weeks ago.

They squared off three times on indoor hard with Pouille leading 2-1. One of these wins came by retirement though, and the score at that point was 6-1, 5-5 for the opponent. Both Frenchmen are great on this surface and Tsonga has simply been playing more effectively lately.

The grass-court season brought a bit of a resurgence but the 25-year-old isnt really living up to his potential. From the best result of his career (Australian Open semifinal), he went straight on to lose five matches in a row. Lucas Pouille has had a rollercoaster-ish season. Hes been playing well this week though, defeating Lorenzo Sonego and coming back from a set and a break down to Filip Krajinovic.

The Spaniard leads his FedEx ATP Head2Head series with Tsonga 8-4, but they havent faced off in four years. Their rivalry isnt as one-sided as the numbers would suggest, though. The Frenchman also prevailed in their lone grass-court meeting at the 2011 Fever-Tree Championships. Theyve split their past six meetings and Tsonga won their last clash at the 2015 Rolex Shanghai Masters.

The Frenchman had a 40-0 lead and blew all three matchpoints, ultimately losing in the fifth-set tie-break. Paire committed 99 unforced errors in that match. He refused to talk about details, but mentioned hoping the ITF will take some action. He walked off the court without giving the Slovenian a handshake, later saying he was insulted by him. At the US Open, Paire had the Slovenian on the ropes, leading 2-1 in sets and 5-4 on his own serve. This might get tense.

H2H Lucas Pouille vs. Philipp Kohlschreiber | U.S. Open preview, odds, prediction

He pushed Kei Nishikori to four sets at Roland Garros and stretched Federer to a deciding set last month at the NOVENTI OPEN. Tsonga hasnt scored a Top 10 win since 2017 Vienna (d. The 34-year-old is no stranger to success at The All England Club, having reached the semi-finals here twice (2011-2012), and still has the game to beat the worlds best when hes firing. Zverev), but has come close in recent months.

Plus, these two guys have excellent serves, and they are not going to allow any easy break chances, so at least one tiebreak is pretty realistic. In all of the matches, Tsonga played at least 1 tie break. The situation is similar with his opponent who had three of them in 4 appearances in Vienna. Winner is the place where to bet on the closing part of Tsonga vs Pouille picks.
