ITF Tour Turkey F45 takes place in Antalya, a well-known locality on the shores of the Mediterranean, and in this analysis I will detail the game between Albert Alcaraz Ivorra and Makoto Ochi, and I will conclude with the corresponding bet.
Antalya is primarily a tourist destination, including for Romanians due to its proximity, but it is one of the most beautiful in Europe. The climate here is almost always summer, and that also helps sport, here touring all year round.
Obviously, Turkey has also invested heavily in tennis, talking strictly about infrastructure, building Koza World of Sports in Istanbul, the largest tennis academy in Europe, which organizes a 250-day tournament every year, and in Antalya there a similar race on the grass in June.
However, the tournament is now small, of $ 15,000, so the minimum level allowed by the International Tennis Federation at this level.
The host is the Starlight Resort, which features landscaped slopes in the open air, offering many other sports facilities such as accommodation or a recovery center.
The competition picture showed well, being still in competition names like Gakhov, Ilkel or Hampel.
Albert Alcaraz Ivorra is a 22-year-old Spaniard, ranked 824 ATP.
But this position is not very relevant in his case, as he was just 377 ATP a year ago, a great talent last year, ending him in the top 500 ATP.
Against an injury that kept him crazy for 4 months, Ivorra has fallen, but his game still looks good and stronger.
Thus, in 2017 he has quarters of finals at ITF Spain F4, semifinal at ITF Spain F31 and recently, two weeks ago, quarters at ITF Morocco F6.
Maybe it does not seem impressive, but Ivorra has sometimes had a chance in the many optimi of the final in which he stopped. Even in these quarter-finals in Morocco, he dominated Bague (406 ATP), losing in my opinion undeservedly.
Makoto Ochi is a 21-year-old Japanese, ranked 538 ATP.
Makoto is quite solid, an athlete who was 370 ATP last year, playing well on both hard and slag, maybe atypical for a Japanese but more and more frequent.
The eye is very interesting, but very oscillating, somehow natural in this circuit.
In 2017 he has quarter finals at ITF USA F7, quarter finals at ITF USA F8, final at ITF Portugal F5, semifinal at ITF Korea F1, semifinal at ITF Portugal F14, quarter finals at ITF Portugal F15, quarter finals at ITF Canada F6, or quarterfinals at ITF Thailand F7.
Albert Alcaraz Ivorra win @ 1.70
