David Goffin vs Aleksandr Dolgopolov – ATP Shenzhen: David Goffin is a Belgian 26-year-old player that occupies the 12th place in the ATP Rankings.
Goffin is a player that plays well in every surface. He has a lot of technique on his strokes, plays at a good level and on a good day he can beat even the best players in the circuit.
David Goffin has been playing better and better and he is recovering his form and rhythm he lost when he got injured in Roland Garros.
Goffin, on his way to the final, defeated Evgeny Donskoy and Donald Young in straight sets, but he needed 3 sets in the semi-final to beat the Swiss Henri Laaksonen.
He could have closed it out in 2, but when it was 4-4 in the 2nd set, he didn’t take advantage of the BP he had.
➡ Alexandr Dolgopolov is a Ukrainian 28-year-old who occupies the 53rd position of the ATP Rankings.
Dolgopolov is a player who competes well in every surface as well, having a funky forehand but strong.
He knows how to accelerate and alternate the pace of the rallies from the baseline with good slices and hard strokes, which makes him an interesting player. He is going through a good stage and on this tournament, he has been able to prove it.
He has beaten Harris and his countrymen Stakhovsky in straights and then he needed 3 sets to beat Dudi Sela, although he only played one game in the 3rd set, with the Israeli retiring to respect the important day on his religion that forced him not to play after the sun set itself.
Then he faced Damir Dzumhur, who he defeated in 2 sets as well.
David Goffin vs Aleksandr Dolgopolov – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Head to head: 0-2 Dolgopolov
David Goffin has never beaten Dolgopolov, but I believe he might do it for the first time in this final.
He is a better player from the baseline, very solid on his strokes and if he is able to deal well with Dolgopolov’s accelerations, he has every condition to come out of this final as a winner.
I won’t say it will be easy, because the Ukrainian is playing well and deserves a lot of credit for reaching this final.
However, David Goffin came here to win and I believe he will once again win an ATP tournament, which would leave them closer to the top 10 once again.
