Bernard Tomic vs Marcos Baghdatis – ATP Hertogenbosch : Bernard Tomic is an Australian 25-year-old tennis player
who is ranked 181st on the ATP Rankings.
He is a very talented player, but he is also very mediatic for the wrong reasons. He is a great player and he was number 17 in the World 2 years ago, but he dropped almost 170 positions.
He is a tall player and he takes advantage of that to establish a very strong serve. He likes to play with slices and with strong and aggressive strokes.
Despite everything, he has been going through poor periods, especially in 2017 where he didn’t even reach 1 semi-final, but it seems like this year he got off to a better start and the proof of that was the final he reached in the Aix en Provence Challenger.
Marcos Baghdatis is a Cypriot 32-years old tennis player who is ranked 83rd on the ATP Rankings. He is a player with a slightly less attacking style, but he is also not exactly a defensive player, knowing how to mix up his game well.
He likes to play with straight strokes, playing more from the baseline, and he likes to play more on the counter-attack, striking the ball very early, complicating the opponent’s positioning and using strong strokes.
He is a very intelligent player on the approach to points and a warrior, never giving up. Unfortunately, he has been having a lot of
problems with injuries and he is not exactly at a good stage of his career.
Baghdatis hasn’t won a title since 2014 and this year he has the semi-finals in the St. Brieuc Challenger has his best record.
Bernard Tomic vs Marcos Baghdatis – Betting Tip and Prediction:
This is a match between 2 players on negative streaks, both of them being former top 20. Tomic has been surprising, showing a good face and fighting for every match.
The Australian has already Brown and Smyczek in straight sets and my bet is that he will do the same here against Baghdatis that is not a clay specialist.
