Brooksby vs Auger Aliassime: another sensation from the American player?
On August 5, Jenson Brooksby and Felix Auger Aliassime square off in the Round of 16 at the Citi Open in Washington. We made a prediction for this match. Who has a better chance to reach the quarterfinals?
The American tennis player continues to improve and gain momentum. Jenson is approaching the top 100 of the ATP ranking, which at 20 is an impressive achievement. Recently the young player reached the final at the Newport tournament, where he lost to Kevin Anderson (6-7, 4-6). Brooksby has worked on his mistakes and took revenge on the South African in Washington (7-6, 6-3). The World №130 also knocked out his compatriot Francis Tiafoe (7-6, 7-5).
Felix Auger Aliassime
Auger Aliassime played great at Wimbledon, he reached the quarterfinals of the Major, where he got eliminated by Matteo Berrettini. This was a very close match with a bitter struggle (3-6, 7-5, 5-7, 3-6). Felix did not perform well at the Olympics, but that gave him more than enough time to get ready for the competition in Washington. In the US capital, Auger Aliassime showed great tennis against Andreas Seppi, defeating the Italian in three sets (2-6, 6-2, 6-2). The Canadian is not planning to stop at this stage.
More than 9 games were played in the 1st set in the last 4 matches of Jenson Brooksby.
Jenson Brooksby played three tie-breaks in the last five matches.
Brooksby feels confident on hard in Washington, as we have already seen in his previous matches. The American passed quite difficult opponents, but facing Felix Auger Aliassime is different. The bookmakers consider the Canadian player to be the favorite. In our opinion, Brooksby will play very aggressively, which should help him maintain the positive handicap.
Our prediction - Jenson Brooksby to win with a handicap of (+3) games.
Prediction: Handicap (+3) to Brooksby
