Murray & Soares vs Ivan Dodig & Granollers – ATP London Finals:The end of the season has arrived and after another exhausting season…
The 8 top doubles’ partnerships have ensured their spot in one of the most important tournaments of the season: the ATP Finals.
Bruno Soares and Jaime Murray have had a below average season when compared to their recent years, but they still had a consistent year.
They finished the season with 3 titles: London, Stuttgart and Acapulco.
They qualified for the ATP Finals as the 4th best doubles’ partnership of the year, despite not winning any Grand Slam or even Masters 1000 title.
On the last tournaments of the season they’ve been playing below their usual quality.
On the first round of the ATP Finals they were beaten by the Bryan brothers 2-1 and they need to win at any cost to dream about qualifying for the semi-finals.
Dodig and Granollers have also finished the year with 3 titles: Basel, Hamburg and Rotterdam. They qualified for this as the 7th best doubles’ partnership of the season.
On the first round of this tournament they lost in two sets to Melo & Kubot and they also need to win at any cost to keep aiming at a spot on the next stage.
This will be the first meeting between both doubles.
Murray & Soares vs Ivan Dodig & Granollers – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On this match I see a very nervy match due to the fact that, whoever loses, will be eliminated from the competition.
This is a match that will be decided on details. But I see a slight favouritism for Murray/Soares.
They have been playing together for a longer time and on such a close match that can make all the difference.
Murray and Soares are better in their serve returns and on their net play. I see Dodig and Granollers being better on the serve and on the baseline exchanges.
But on a fast court like this, the match will be decided at the net basically. Whoever returns better and is able to dominate the net first will have the upper hand.
