Cilic vs Cuevas (By: Iniestaone)
Second round from ATP Budapest between Cilic (#11) and Cuevas (#73)
Here I am backing Cilic to take a straight set victory against Cuevas
Cilic is in really poor form at the moment with three losses in a row (Shapovalov, Rublev, Pella), he struggled with a knee injury in the start of the season and he has had a hard time finding form as of late. But its just a question of when, not if, he will start performing again
I watched Cuevas today as I backed Maden to defeat him and I can't quite understand how Maden didn't win that match. It went to the third set where Cuevas was struggling with moving so much and he needed a medical timeout and rubbing between several games, he was in pain while serving and Maden still couldn't touch his serve in the third. Cuevas has had a tough schedule lately and I don't think he has the physical condition to put in a big performance against Cilic, he was limping in that third set versus Maden and its understandable that he is extremely tired after playing a lot of tennis these last ten days.
Cilic has the general quality to win this in two sets and with Cuevas poor physical shape, i think he will do it.
