Andreozzi vs Istomin
1st round in Sofia and a match between Denis Istomin and Adrian Andreev.
I know most of you don't know who is this guy Adrian Andreev and that's okay, cause he is really young, only 16 years old from Bulgaria and he is really talanted player. Andreev plays with a lot of confidence which is untypical for most of the players of his age, something like De Minaur from Australia. His performance during the last months was fantastic in junior tournaments and this will be a big chance for him to participate in ATP tournament. None of the Bulgarian participants was destroyed in Sofia till now. They showed a lot of confidence and most of them took part in 3-set matches against players who were said to be the big favourites.
Istomin is not in amazing form. He is part of top 100 and was beaten badly by Kyle Edmund in Australia in straight sets. I think he will also underestimate his opponent today and won't start the match so concentrated cause he knows he is the big favourite here. Istomin is not a guy who makes trashing results giving his opponents 2 or 3 games during the match.
I think Andreev has everything to win at least five games here and why not to dream about something bigger. He has to give his best on the court and to show Istomin he's not going on the court just to lose fastly and then go to the USA, which is his next plan. The odds in Pinnacle are perfect, although most of the bookies give odds like 1.90/2.00 for this kind of pick, Pinnacle are very generous and I can't miss that.
