Musetti vs Millman: will there be struggle?
On July 24, Lorenzo Musetti takes on John Milliman in the first round of the Olympic Games in Tokyo. Who will be the winner? Our answer is in the prediction below.
Musetti had a great start to the current season, but recently he has had little success. At the moment, the Italian tennis player is experiencing a crisis and it is hard to believe in his successful performance at the Tokyo Olympics.
Lorenzo was eliminated from the last tournaments straight after the opening matches. At Wimbledon, the Italian lost to Hubert Hurkacz in the first round (4-6, 6-7, 1-6), and at the Swedish Open, he was defeated by Henry Laaksonen, also in the first round (2-6, 3-6, 4-6).
At the moment,Millman is not in the top form either. But we all have seen how dedicated John can be when representing his country. That's why we wouldn't write him off despite all setbacks. Moreover, hard is his favorite surface. But we should mention, that this season, the Australian tennis player didn't have any noteworthy results: he has only one victory out of five matches.
Musetti has played 3 tie-breaks in the last 5 matches.
Under 9.5 games were played in the first set in 4 of Millman's last 5 matches.
Undoubtedly, Millman has more experience on hard, so we suggest betting on his victory in this matchup. Although John is not in the best form at the moment, he will certainly try to give his best at the Olympics.
Our prediction - Millman to win.
Musetti is a favorite among bookmakers, but we don't think that this will be an easy match for the Italian tennis player. Millman loves to play on hard, and he has more experience on this surface than Lorenzo. We look forward to a long and exciting match.
