Best prediction tennis for Lucas Pouille-Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
In his last tournament US Open Pouille world number 26 beat in the 1st round Philipp Kohlschreiber with 3:1 but lost in the 2nd round with 3:1 against Daniel Evans who is world number 47. Before that he made a great performance in Cincinnati where the French beat Denis Kudla, Denis Shapovalov and world number 9 Karen Khachanov in the round of 16 with 2:1 to reach the quarterfinal where he lost in straight sets from world number Novak Djokovic he then lost from Daniil Medvedev who won the title after beating in the final David Goffin.
Tsonga world number 61 lost 3:2 sets in the 1st round in the US Open from Tennys Sandgren world number 69 in their first-ever match which was not expert tennis forecast. Then he decided to play in Cassis challenger in France and he won the tournament after beating all of his opponents in straight sets – Harri Heliovaara, Antoine Escoffier, Rayane Roumane, Mikael Ymer and in the final Dudi Sela. Jo-Wilfried started in Metz against Pablo Andujar and beat him 2:1 sets after losing the first set with 6:3. In the round of 16, he beat 2:0 world number 55, Pierre-Hugues Herbert. In the quarterfinal, he played against world number 17 Nikoloz Basilashvili and lost first set but then won the second and in the third with 4-1 lead his opponent Basilashvili retired.
Pouille and Tsonga played against each other 4 times and both have 2 wins and 2 losses. Their last clash was in Montpellier 2018 and Pouille won after Tsonga retired leading with one set and 5:5 in the second so we can tell that Lucas got lucky at this game. Jo-Wilfried is the favourite according to sports betting sites but I will go with Lucas to win this match because I think Tsonga tired after playing 5 games in Cassis challenger and that will give Lucas Pouille an advantage in this specific game.
