Bernard Tomic vs Lorenzo Sonego – Australian Open : Bernard Tomic is an Australian 25-year-old that currently occupies the 142nd position of the ATP Rankings.
Bernard Tomic is a tennis player of great quality, a player that would normally be in the Main Draw of this tournament, and a seeded player as well.
Tomic isn’t used to these qualifying, but he has the obligation to go through it. He started with a flawless win over Vincent Millot 6-1 6-3.
Then he faced Tommy Paul and was up 6-0 5-2. Then he allowed the American to recover and lost the 2nd set 6-7. He then only managed to win in the 3rd set tie-break. He didn’t play poorly, but he made life way harder than it should have been for himself.
➡ Lorenzo Sonego is an Italian 22-year old tennis player that currently occupies the 218th position of the ATP Rankings.
Sonego is a player that likes to play from the baseline and has a good attitude on the long ball exchanges. Sonego started the season at the Playford Challenger where he lost in the 3rd set tie-break to Norbert Gombos.
Then he came to this Australian Open qualifying, where he has beaten the Brazilian Thiago Monteiro and the Egyptian Mohamed Safwat both in straight sets. He had some issues on the 2nd set tie-break but he recovered from 2 mini-breaks down to win the match.
Head-to-head: These two players have never met before
Bernard Tomic vs Lorenzo Sonego – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Bernard Tomic plays here the last round of the qualifying and I would say that he has the obligation to win this match.
I consider him to be the best player and, especially on hard court and playing at home, he will have to step up his game and confirm a victory against a less-experienced player who is not so used to the big stage.
Bernard Tomic complicated what was simple yesterday and I predict him to start as well as he did against Tommy Paul, but then keep his composure until the end to avoid any upsets. I naturally predict a win for Bernard Tomic here.
