2.Advanced and statistics
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga showed well in the first match on this season’s grass. The Frenchman defeated Mischa Zverev in two sets, 6-3, 6-0, and had a percentage of first service of 88%. The game lasted less than an hour, and Tsonga moved to the highest level.Getting the 79th ATP, the Frenchman seems to be on the right track. He has gone through at least two tours to four of the last eight tournaments he has recently participated in, and in February he won the title in Montpellier.Tsonga is a tough grass player with two semi-finals played at Wimbledon in 2011 and 2012. Last year, she had to jump over the grass season after the knee surgery.
Milos Raonic also wants to get his shape after the knee injury due to which he missed the entire clay season. Canadian is 18th ATP and in the first round of Stuttgart he needed three sets to defeat Alexei Popyrin.The service once again made the difference in its favor. He gave no less than 31 aces and won at tie-break two of the three sets played in the Australian match of 19 years. Raonic’s performance was impressive, as he had not played a Miami match in March.Milos Raonic has a Wimbledon final in 2016, lost to Andy Murray. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga had him as his opponent 6 times throughout his career and four times defeated him. Those met on the grass only in a demonstration match two years ago, and Tsonga was the one who was forced.
Tennis Prediction of the Day Jo-Wilfried Tsonga vs Milos Raonic
Both players are extremely rewarding on their own service, and this is very important in grass games. I expect the first set, in which both Tsonga and Raonic will be resting, will have over 10.5 games.
Prediction Today: Over 10,5 games in the first set
