Carreno Busta vs Koepfer: how many sets will they play?
On July 28, Pablo Carreno Busta goes against Dominik Koepfer in the Round 16 of the Olympic tennis tournament in Tokyo. Who has a better chance of winning? Look out for our answer in the prediction below.
Pablo Carreno Busta
Carreno Busta is on a good run now: he came to Tokyo after winning the tournament in Hamburg. At the Olympics, Pablo continued his victorious streak. In the first round, Carreno Busta defeated Tennys Sandgren in two sets (7-5, 6-2). And in the second round, he earned a strong-willed victory over the Croatian player Marin Cilic (5-7, 6-4, 6-4).
Koepferhad two completely different matches at the current Tokyo Olympics. If in the first round he had to work hard to defeat Facundo Bagnis (3-6, 6-3, 7-5), in the second round Dominik left no chances for the Australian Max Purcell (6-4, 7-6). So it is really difficult to predict what Koepfer's next match will be like in terms of the performance, but Dominik definitely should not be underestimated.
Koepfer has played 3 tie-breaks in the last 5 matches.
More than 9.5 games were played in the first set in 4 of Carreno Busta's last 5 matches.
The only match between the tennis players took place two years ago on hard. Back then, Carreno Busta won a landslide victory, losing only four games to Koepfer. Of course, since then Dominik has noticeably improved his game, but it is still unlikely that he will be able to defeat the Spaniard.
Our prediction - Carreno-Busta to win with a handicap of (-4) games.
Prediction: Handicap (-4) to Carreno Busta
