Lestienne 2.00, Sijsling 2.00
This will be their first meeting.
Sijsling had a poor season. He has had some injury issues in 2017 and has just 3 wins from 15 matches. He has 2 wins last month with one of them being against Evan Furness from France who is ranked outside the top 600. He did beat Alex De Minaur on carpet in October. You have to go back to February for his last win before those.
Lestienne has much better recent form indoors and has come through the qualifying rounds this week. he reached the quarter finals in Mouilleron Le Captif, France indoors as a qualifier 2 weeks ago.
We have some value on Lestienne. When the market opened he was slight underdog. I’ll back him from the start.
