Djere vs Del Potro (By: Iniestaone)
Second round match from ATP Madrid between Djere (#32) and Del Potro (#8)
I really thought Djere would be the favorite for this match but instead we can get 2.50 times the money for him to win this which just makes no sense to me.
Del Potro is making another comeback for this season, his right knee fell apart in Shanghai last year and he has put in three matches this season, they were all in Delray Beach where he defeated Nishioka and Opelka before losing to McDonald and he didn't look very fit there at all. He hasn't played since that McDonald match on February 23rd so he is heavily lacking match practice while this match is played on a clay court which first of all is not his main surface and second of all takes a bigger toll on the body as he can't finish the points as quickly as he can on a hard or grass court and is forced to move around a lot more.
Djere caught some form ahead of Madrid as he reached the semis in Budapest where he lost to Berrettini who ended up winning the tournament and he took out Lajovic in the first round in Madrid with a convincing 6-4 6-4 scoreline. He is now 11/4 on clay this season and I think a clear cut clay courter like him is exactly what is needed to defeat a very stationary Del Potro.
