Match Predict – Handicap (+5.5) for Sousa
Sousa is looking pretty good at the current tournament in Geneva. He has won all his matches in two sets. Joao seems to have a pretty good feel for the local surface, so we don’t underestimate him. We believe that Sousa will be able to at least take a set from Ruud in the upcoming meeting.
Total Games – Over 20.5
Ruud is the favourite, but we think he will have a tough match. Sousa has made good progress. Victories over Basilashvili, Ivashka and Gasquet show that the Joao is in good form. So it is unlikely to be an easy walk for Ruud.
