Coric vs Seppi
QF match in Halle between Borna Coric and Andreas Seppi.
Here I will not look for game handicaps, overs/unders or anything else..prefer just to play Borna to win the match. Yeah, the odds are not so high, absolutely average odds, but it is enough for me in this game. Why Borna to win it? He is much younger and in really good form. He beat Alex Zverev and Nikoloz Basilashvili in straight sets looking really confident on the court. I don't expect different story on the court against Andreas Seppi.
The weather in Halle in a little bit colder, about 15 degrees, but that doesn't hinder them to make a lot of aces. Seppi relies on them so much, while Borna is not too addicted to them, he is much better in rallies and this will help him a lot tomorrow, especially if the Italian has problems with his 1st serve and the percentage is not high. Borna is also a good server, he proved it against Zverev and Basilashvili- no break chances in his serve against the Georgian, while against Zverev he was broken only one time, when he was serving for the match being one set ahead and 5:2. Andreas also didn't have a lot of problems on his serve till now, but his opponents were much easier in my eyes- Matteo Berrettini and Florian Mayer. Borna is a player from much higher class and really talented youngster.
They have one match and it was on grass in Wimbledon 2015, when Coric was only 18 years old. Seppi was the favorite to win it and succeeded, but in long five set match. Coric was the one, who was ahead 2:1 sets, but maybe he wasn't still ready for five sets and without too much energy left, he was outplayed in the last two sets by Seppi. Now he is much stronger physically and technically, while Seppi..he is 34 years old and it's obvious he doesn't have much time as a proffesional left. Andreas is really talented player, especially on faster courts, but I don't think he will be equal to Coric for a long time during the match. I will not be surprised if the final in Halle is between Roger and Borna.
