Match: Paolo Lorenzi vs. Andy Murray Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips
Date: Saturday, 03 September, 2016
Paolo Lorenzi is facing Andy Murray in the 3rd round of US Open 2016.
This is definitely the easiest match to be predicted but we all know that in Grand Slams miracles happen. For Lorenzi is big success reaching the 3rd round as he defeated Carlos Berlocq in 3 sets and Gilles Simon in dramatic 5-setter.
His match versus Simon was definitely one of the most dramatic in the tournament so far. In the 5th set both players weren’t at their best, they “ran out of gas” and played a set more typical for the WTA tour – many breaks, the serve gave the players no advantage etc.
Lorenzi will probably be still tired against Murray who is the player in best form right now. Murray will try to win this match as quick as possible because in the 4th round he will possibly face Grigor Dimitrov who is a tough match-up for the Scottish player. Murray is just too good for Lorenzi and I expect him to lose mostly 2 games per set against the Italian.
