Marton Fucsovics vs Vasek Pospisil najava

In the first round of the 2021 tennis championship in Dubai, Marton Fucsovics will play against Vasek Pospisil on Monday.

The Fucsovics recently reached the final of the Rotterdam Open and have recently been playing fine tennis. The Hungarian will be ready to make the best use of his solid start to the new season with a strong performance in Dubai.

On the other hand, Pospisil in two main appearances this year found himself paired with several very tough opponents.

The Canadian opened his season with exits from the first and second rounds by Danilo Medvedev and Denis Shapovalov. But despite those losses, Pospisil has also looked good in recent months.

The 30-year-old finished the 2020 season with his final performance in Sofia and has a great game tailored to hard pitches. He will be racing slow at the start of the season and could pose some problems for Fucsovics.

Prediction Marton Fucsovics – Vasek Pospisil

Marton Fucsovics enters this competition as a small favorite, considering his recent results. He has managed to hold up against such as Stan Wawrinka and Milos Raonic recently, and will certainly feel good in his game.

The Hungarian was especially impressive on his return, and he will need that part of his game to work well to meet Vasek Pospisil’s serve.

Pospisil, for his part, will try to start quickly and press his opponent from the very beginning. His serve and forehand will help him score a few quick points, but he will have to maintain his intensity throughout the match.

The Fucsovics gave up on the last match against Andrey Rublev in Doha, and his fitness could play a key role in Monday’s match. The Canadian will imagine his chances against a potentially tired opponent, but even the slightest interruptions could turn the match in Fucsovics ’favor.

Prediction: Marton Fucsovics won in three sets.
