Cecchinato vs Fucsovics
2 round match in Munich between Marco Cecchinato from Italy and Marton Fucsovics from Hungary.
Marco is in his best form maybe for the last few years. He performed very good in several Challengers until he played in Monte Carlo. There he got some big wins against Garcia Lopez and Dzumhur until Raonic stopped him. The peak was in Budapest where he won the title last week. That title brings him closer to top 50. He is N59, while Marton is N61, so they are really close in the ranking.
Marton Fucsovics doesn't have the best start of his clay season campaign, but he always puts up a fight. He lost all of his matches on clay against Jaziri, Medvedev and Maden, all of them in three sets. Now in Munich he started good with a straight set win against Pella who is totally out of form, while Marco beat Fognini in three sets.
There are no matches between them and that's the first match of the daily schedule in Munich, so I think they will give a good start. Fucsovics always started good his matches winning the first set, when he plays on clay but then something changed totally in his performance and lost the matches. That's something which is also not so untypical for Cecchinato to lose the first set and then to turn the match in his favour. He did it against Fognini, Seppi and Struff.
Ceccinato's win looks so obvious here, his form is so much better but the high odds over 1.60 make me think that this match won't be the easiest one for the Italian. They are close in the ranking, Cecchinato will be much more tired for sure and that's the reason I think Hungarian has the chance to start better in the match. I know it's risky but I see a lot of value in this bet with odds over 4.00. Still believe Cecchinato is better and will win but want to try something different in the start of the month with a correct score 2:1 sets for Cecchinato. I hope his tank is still not over. He gave solid performance against his friend Fognini in the start and I hope he will do it again against Marton Fucsovics.
