Malek Jaziri vs Taro Daniel
Jaziri against Daniel is the final in Istanbul.
The experienced Tunisian is in brilliant form. He showed that in Barcelona where he was so unlucky and was stopped by Grigor Dimitrov in a match where both players were asbosutely equal and it wouldn't be undeserved if Jaziri had continued in the tournament. Here in Istanbul he defeated his opponents with easiness. Only Vesely succeeded to take him a set, but all at all that's a huge win, we talk about Jaziri's victory against a player, who had two victories against the Tunisian in straight sets. One of the wins was against Marin Cilic, seeded as N1 and he was defeated badly 6:4 6:2.
Taro Daniel is about 10 years younger than Jaziri and also has unbelievable good week when we see his previous results. He did something big this year only in Indian Wells where he reached the third round and in the second he eliminated Djokovic in three sets, but we saw that's not something impossible with the bad form of the Serb in the last few months after his return. He looks way more inconsistent on the court in Istanbul than Jaziri. He can easily lose a set 6:1/6:2 if his 1st serve doesn't work and makes more unforced errors. Jaziri is capable of making his opponent to do a lot of mistakes.
I played Jaziri two times this week against Vesely and Djere and I am going with him once again. I have a good feeling about him when he eliminated Cilic. No matter who will win tomorrow, it will be his first ATP title. I won't play -1.5 sets AH for Jaziri here, although I believe he will win in straight sets, just because his opponent is from Asia and I have some little rules and one of them looks strange but I never play straight set wins for anybody against Asians, no matter what the pair is, even if it is Nadal-Taro Daniel on clay.. Maybe AH with games is good option here, but I will go just with Jaziri win! The odds will drop for sure until the start of the match. I think 1.67 is fair enough and I am placing max stake here.
