Schwartzman vs Machac: easy win for the Argentine?
On July 27, Diego Schwarzman goes against Tomas Machac in the second round of the tennis tournament at the Tokyo Olympics. Will the Argentine get an easy win? Our answer is in the prediction below.
Schwartzman did not have the best start at the current Tokyo Olympics. In the first round of the tournament, the eminent Argentinean faced Juan Pablo Varillas, who is ranked 130th in the ATP world ranking. And Diego really struggled to defeat him, the match was much closer than it should have been. (7-5, 6-4). However, a difficult start at the tournament is not something unusual for Schwartzman.
Machac defeated the Portuguese tennis player Joao Sousa in the first round of the Olympic tournament in Tokyo. Sousa has had a very bad season, but still, Tomas needed three sets to beat the opponent (6-7, 6-4, 6-4). It is noticeable that Machac lacks experience when it comes to big tournaments. After all, the Czech tennis player mostly appears at Challengers, and therefore, is used to playing against a different level of players.
Machac has played 3 tie-breaks in the last 5 matches.
Under 9.5 games have been played in the first set in 3 of Schwartzman's last 5 matches.
Machac is not really a tennis player who can compete with Schwartzman. Tomas mainly plays at Challengers, and his chances against more serious opponents at a big tournament like the Olympics are slim. We are betting on Schwartzman's victory with a handicap.
Our prediction - Schwartzman to win with a handicap of (-4) games.
Prediction: Handicap (-4) to Schwartzman
