2.Advanced and statistics
Jo Wilfried Tsonga
Frenchman Jo Wilfried Tsonga comes for the second time in Halle, 10 years away from his first and only participation in the German tournament on the grass. After eliminating the second round of Grand Slam from Roland Garros, 1-3 against sets against Japanese Kei Nishikori, Tsonga, 77th in the ATP standings, did not impress even the grass in Stuttgart, being eliminated in optimi, by Canadian Milos Raonic (world number 18) with 4-6, 7-6 and 6-7.The success recorded at the beginning of February this year in the Montpellier (hard) tournament in France has consisted in conquering the eighteenth ATP career title for Jo Wilfried Tsonga, 34.
French tennis player Benoit Paire, 28th in the ATP standings, is for the third time in his career on the main stage of the Halle tournament, where he was eliminated in the previous edition with 1-2 sets by the Swiss Roger Federer in sixteen the final of the competition.Paire comes after a mediocre run on the Roland Garros slag, his route ending in the finals, where he gave 5 sets, 2-6, 7-6, 2-6, 7-6 and 5- 7 in front of world number 7, Kei Nishikori.The Tuesday game is the first on the grass for Paire after a break of almost one year, more precisely since July last year, when he lost to Del Potro, 0-3 in sets, in Grandslam’s sixteenth finals at Wimbledon.
Tennis Prediction of the Day Jo Wilfried Tsonga vs Benoit Paire
Although he is an extremely valuable player, Benoit Paire does not feel comfortable on this type of surface, obviously if we take into account the statistics of his matches on the grass, only 27 wins out of a total of 56 games. On the other hand, Tsonga, far from being a player who prefers this area, has on his part the statistics of last year’s meetings, 70 wins and only 23 defeats. So, considering these details, but also the momentum of the two tennis players, this time I will choose to count on the number of sets of defeat between Tsonga and Paire.
