Match: Inigo Cervantes vs. Grigor Dimitrov Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips
Date: Tuesday, 30 August, 2016
Another game with American participation will be the one between Donald Young and Jan-Lennard Struff.
Grigor Dimitrov will play against Inigo Cervantes in the 1st round of US Open. The Bulgarian has been playing some great tennis recently, reminding us of 2014 when he reached world number 8. The main reason for his recent progress is definitely his new coach Dani Vallverdu. Grigor is starting to show much more variety with his serve, much more pace and accuracy in his shots and it’s no surprise that he reached a quarter-final at Toronto Masters (losing to Nishikori in 3) and semi-final in Cincinnati where he missed a great opportunity to reach his first Masters Final.
But the most important thing is that one of the most talented players in the tour is getting back to his greatest days, he moved with 10 positions in the rankings and he definitely feels much more confident than 2 months ago. Inigo Cervantes is a Challenger-level player whose favorite surface is clay, like almost every Spaniard. He doesn’t feel comfortable on hard and his only chance here is if Dimitrov has a terrible day. I think that the progress of the Bulgarian will continue and I expect from him to reach 1/8 final against Andy Murray.
