Albot - Otte
ATP Cologne 2
As part of the qualifications for the second tournament in Cologne, a duel between Radu Albot and Oscar Otte awaits us.
They were already playing against each other in the first tournament which is still in progress when Albot celebrated in one very difficult match that went on in 3 sets.
Albot had one very bad series this season, it seems to me 10 tied defeats and he was really stuck. On concrete, for example, this season he has 0/8, while he recorded 2 victories on clay and in the hall. Otherwise, the game in the hall does not suit him. considering that he has a pretty bad score during his career.
Otte as a domestic tennis player here I expect to avenge that defeat from less than 3 days ago. Lately he has been playing great in the last 10 matches, he has only two defeats from Popko and Albot and he won the Challenger in Aix not so long ago. his total score is 123/74 while this year he is at 3/3.
I think that Albot will have a very hard time winning and recording another victory in a very short time over Otte, especially in conditions that are more suitable for Otte and his practically home field, considering that he was born and lives in Cologne, so he will certainly not lack motivation.
