Lucas Pouille vs. Stefanos Tsitsipas: Will Stefanos experience difficulties playing with the Frenchman?
Pouille vs. Tsitsipas: ATP Marseille forecast (March 11, 2021)
In the second round of the tournament in Marseille, Stefanos Tsitsipas will play against Lucas Pouille on March 11. Is the Frenchman ready for such a test? Read in our forecast.
Last summer Pouille underwent elbow surgery, which is why he had only three confrontations last season. The Frenchman is in no hurry to force events; he gradually recovers and returns to court. In the current season, Lucas has played five games, in which he has issued two victories.
In early February, Pouille defeated Yannick Maden in the first round of the Quimper competition. The French tennis player won his second victory this season just at the current competition in Marseille, where he defeated Alex Molcan in the first round (7-5, 6-3).
Upcoming Predictions for Tennis
Stefanos Tsitsipas played in the final in Rotterdam last week. But in the decisive match, he lost to Andrei Rublev. Nevertheless, the results of Stefanos' performances this season speak of good playing shape which the Greek tennis player is currently in.
It is important to recall that before the tournament in Rotterdam, Tsitsipas played pretty well in Australia. In Melbourne, Stefanos won two matches in the ATP Cup and managed to reach the semi-finals of the Australian Open, where he lost to Russian Daniil Medvedev.
Pouille is slowly recovering after undergoing elbow surgery last summer. Obviously, the return is not easy for the French tennis player, as he has already suffered three defeats in five matches this season.
At the moment Lucas doesn’t seem to be ready for serious competitions in the confrontation with tennis players from the Top-10 of the world ranking. Tsitsipas will confidently beat the Frenchman in the upcoming match in two games.
Our forecast is that Tsitsipas will win with a handicap (-4.5) for a coefficient of 1.92 on 1xbet.
