Bautista - Berdych
Final of the ATP 250 Series Finals in Doha. Spanish tennis player Roberto Bautista Agut and the Czech Republic s tennis player Tomas Berdych will compete. I m calling on Berdych s victory.
Berdych also surprised me with a very good game at the beginning of the season after a long absence due to an injury. He came to the finals with 1 lost set, and he had a very hard draw, from the first round (Kohlschreiber, Verdasco, Herbert, Cecchinato). He played very aggressively, the service was good, forehand too, only the backhand side seemed a little uncertain, but I believe that he will correct it during the course of the game. On Berdych does not have to spend too many words, ex top 10 player, he was top 10 for a long tipme, played the finals of almost all tournaments, an aggressive tennis player who enjoys dictating points with the forehand side. Bautista, on the other hand, reached a second victory against Djokovic in his career yesterday, and he was earned because he played a phenomenal whole match. Earlier, he managed to win Wawrinka, who slowly returned to form. In my opinion, Bautista is not as favorable as this bookmaker ssays. First of all, yesterday he had a very tough match against Djokovic, and he spent 2h30min on the court, which surely it was exhausted, and it was not easy to get on the court the next day after the physical exhausting match. The next, commonly known thing is that the average tennis player is emotionally emptied after winning a top player, and the next match playing isbelow the average, and that really happened many times, so I would not be surprised to be so today. Berdych played a very good tournament, as well as Bautista, a duel of two different styles, Berdych is a phenomenal hitter and when set to the forehand there is no defense. I expect an equal match, but in the end, as a winner, I see Berdych. Good luck
