Marin Cilic v Jack Sock: Cilic to win – 8/11
Both players come into this match having lost their opening Boris Becker group matches in London and will need a win here in order to progress.
Marin Cilic inexplicably threw away a break lead in the final set against Alexande Zverev, while Jack Sock was too busy mooning Federer in his match to pull out a win.
They’ve played each other twice so far in their careers with Sock coming out on top in both, however this time the value lies in the more serious Cilic to win.
At 8/11, we’ll happily side with the Croatian in this one.
Rodger Federer v Alexander Zverev: Zverev to win at least 1 set – 11/10
The second match of the day holds the most interesting tie, where the great Federer takes a man destined to be on the future of men’s tennis.
Surprisingly, Zverev comes into the contest boasting a better H2H record against R-Fed having beaten the tennis icon three times so far in his short career. However, Federer wasn’t anywhere near 100% in their last match in the Montreal final, so we’re calling a fault on that one.
Zverev has had another remarkable year, which has seen him rise to no.3 in the world and we believe the young German can continue this form against Federer tomorrow night.
Both players are very good servers and so expect the sets to be tight affairs.
