Alexandr Dolgopolov vs Dudi Sela – ATP Shenzhen: Alexandr Dolgopolov is an Ukrainian 28-year old player who currently occupies the 53rd position of the ATP Rankings.
Dolgopolov is a player who plays well in all surfaces, a player with a weird but strong forehand, who knows how to accelerate and alternates the pace of his shots from the baseline. He also has good slices, good accelerations and is a very interesting tennis player.
Dolgopolov is having a good second half of the season and if he keeps playing like this, he will finish off the season inside the top 50.
Here in Shenzhen, he has beaten Harris and Stakhovsky, both in straight sets, with the highlight going to his great service games, since he got broken only once in total on those matches.
➡ Dudi Sela is an Israeli 32-year old player who occupies the 77th position of the ATP Rankings. This is an experienced player, who practically only plays on hard courts and he isn’t a player with a lot of technical ability, ending up only taking advantage of his better characteristics.
A good serve, aggressive forehand, going to the net whenever he cans and not always imposing much pace on the long ball exchanges.
Dudi Sela has been playing relatively well and he is still competing here after having beaten Matthew Ebden in straight sets and Mischa Zverev in 3 sets.
On the Doubles, he is also still competing. The Israeli is in good form here in China.
Alexandr Dolgopolov vs Dudi Sela – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Head to head: 1-1
From what the Ukrainian player has been showing, I believe he will get the win.
Dolgoplov is a more complete player, having more arguments, more tennis, more ability to vary the rhythms, alternating his slices with his forehand accelerations and for Dudi Sela it will be tricky to match his game.
I don’t expect Dolgopolov to destroy him, but I think he is capable of winning and advancing to the semi-finals.
On this tournament, Dolgopolov might still a word to say and from the quality he has been presenting, he is able to win so he should be a heavy favourite in this encounter.
Dudi Sela is always a dangerous player to face but against Dolgopolov, I think he won’t be able to pass.
