Medvedev vs Otte: prediction for the Halle Open match
Daniil Medvedev hasn't surrended a single set in Halle so far. The Russian athlete defeated David Goffin (6-3, 6-2), Ilya Ivashka (7-6, 6-3), and Roberto Bautista-Agut (6-2, 6-4) to reach the semifinals. Last week, Medvedev was the finalist of the tournament in 's-Hertogenbosch, but he was upset by Tim Van Rijthoven (4-6, 1-6) in the decisive match.
Oscar Otte has demonstrated decent performance on grass courts this year. Last week, he reached the semifinals of the Stuttgart Open, and now he will fight for a spot in the final in Halle. During the current tournament, the German tennis player defeated Miomir Kecmanovic (7-6, 6-4), Nikoloz Basilashvili (4-6, 6-0, 7-6), and Karen Khachanov (4-6, 7-6, 6-4). In total, Otte was 14 wins on grass against eight defeats.
In the last 5 matches, Medvedev played only one tie-break.
More than 9 games were played in first sets of Otte's last 5 matches.
Otte delivered solid results on grass courts and reached his second consecutive semifinal. However, we dont think he can overcome the world №1 - Medvedev should confidently win this match.
Our prediction - Medvedev to win with a handicap of (-4) games
Medvedev won all of his Halle Open matches in straight sets. Otte shouldn't become a problem for him. We expect Medvedev to make short work of his opponent.
Second bet - total under 23 games
