David Goffin vs Donald Young – ATP Shenzhen: David Goffin is a Belgian 26-year old player who is 12th on the ATP Rankings.
Goffin is a player who plays well in every surface, has a lot of technique on his strokes, a good quality and can one day defeat the best players in the ATP circuit.
Goffin had some bad luck this year, injuring himself on Roland Garros. He missed some important tournaments like Wimbledon. On the US Open he was already able to play a bit better and he reached the 4th round there.
Goffin had lost on the 2nd round of this tournament last year and this season he also started off well, beating Evgeny Donskoy in 2 close sets.
He didn’t get broken a single time and he only conceded 1 break point over the course of the match.
➡ Donald Young is a North-American 28-year old player who occupies the 61st position on the ATP Rankings.
Young is a fast surfaces’ player, an inconsistent one, but, with some quality which depends on whether he is on the stage where he is playing at his best or at his worst.
He sometimes risks too much but, when he is on fire, he becomes a dangerous player, especially on fast surfaces. Here, he has been doing well and got 2 wins so far.
First over Nicolas Kuhn, in straight sets, very balanced as well, and then over the French Jeremy Chardy, in another close match. He doesn’t have any points to defend this week.
Head to head: 1-0 Goffin
David Goffin vs Donald Young – Betting Tip and Prediction:
David Goffin is the best player and I believe he will be able to win in straight sets.
It would be important for him to win this ATP title to face this Asian tour with more confidence and force his way in on the Top 10 again.
Donald Young, like I’ve mentioned, can become a dangerous player.
He has already won 2 matches on this tournament, but now we are upon a player who can win a great point and then make a double fault or an unforced error on the point immediately after.
David Goffin will give his best looking for the title here and I believe that he will be the more consistent player during the match, which should confirm his win in straight sets.
