Davidovich Fokina vs Cuevas (By: Iniestaone)
Semifinal match from ATP Estoril between Davidovich Fokina (#167) and Cuevas (#67)
My last tip of the day is that the second Estoril semifinal goes over 22 games
I watched D. Fokina's match against Monfils and he was brilliant, he plays very bravely and goes for the big shots while he maintains a great defense on clay. If he can target Cuevas' forehand good enough then he will have a chance of advancing to the finals
Cuevas' quarterfinal was against Tiafoe whom he bageled in the first set, he then lost the second 6-7 and won the third 6-2. He has been solid here even though he hasn't faced very tough opposition.
What we can expect from this match is many baseline duels and long point buildups from both players, it should be a really even match and the odds reflect that as Cuevas is a 1.55-ish favorite against a 19 year old. Everything is telling me that we will see a long match here that Cuevas probably wins in the end. I really like D. Fokina and what he has done in Estoril but he has been declining mentally gradually throughout the whole tournament, he was broken twice in the third set against Monfils after losing his temper but Monfils was awful in that third set too. He won't have the luxury of throwing away serve games unpunished against Cuevas.
All in all, this should be the match of the day
