Anderson vs Sock by Vilcox
Kevin Anderson is coming to this match after defeating Jaziri in straight sets, Thiem in 3 sets and Bhambri in 3 sets. After the first easy match (1:32 hours), Kevin Anderson played an incredible battle in the 2nd round against Dominic Thiem (2:51). That was a very tough match physically and fisically and, in fact, he was a little bit tired against Bhambri. He lost a set against the number 200 in the world and that costed him another 2 hours and 1 minute on the court. It's clear that, at this point of the tournament, Kevin Anderson will be tired. He is not accustomed to play very long matches and after 2 tough matches in a row, I don't see him keeping the same level of tennis especially on his serve and on key moments.
Jack Sock, on the other hand, is playing just amazing here in Washington. In front of his crowd, he is fully motivated and he won every single match in straight sets against Copil, Donaldson and Raonic. His most impressive win came, obviously, against Milos Raonic and he didn't had to play a tiebreak as he was able to break his opponent in both matches. Do you want some incredible stats? He conceded very few break points to his opponents and he was broken only one time in the whole tournament!! That happened yesterday against Raonic and he was still able to win that set without a tiebreak. Even in case of tiebreak(s), Jack Sock it's clear favourite. Ha has played 3 tiebreaks in the tournament winning them all.
The home advantage is on Jack Sock's side. Also, the American will be completely fresh and ready for this semifinal while Anderson will have problems even in case of 3 sets in my opinion. After winning already two tournament on this surface in Delray Beach and Auckland, I see Jack Sock playing at least the final here in Washington.
