Due to start at 6 pm
Fritz 1.70, Djere 2.38
This will be their first meeting.
Slightly better results for Fritz this season. He has won 62% of his matches in 2018 compared to 57% for Djere. Djere has the higher ROI. Fritz has a better indoor record but there’s not much between them.
Fritz’ only successes indoors have been in Challengers this season. His recent form on hard courts has been excellent. He made the third round at the US Open and the semi finals in Chengdu, China earlier this month.
Djere has come through the qualifying rounds this week. He beat Donskoy and Jaziri as slight underdog. His best results have come on clay which is his favoured surface. He should be competitive today.
I am backing Fritz to win today. Back him around 1.85.
