David Goffin vs Pablo Carreno-Busta
David Goffin will play against Pablo Carreno-Busta in the 1st round in Tokyo at Japan Open and we got Value tennis betting tips for the tournament. The game is on Tuesday, 1 October and will not start before 3:00 UK.
This will be the most interesting game from the 1st round in Japan in my opinion. David Goffin world number 15 won in the 1st round in the US Open against Corentin Moutet and then beat in the 2nd Gregoire Barrere. In the 3rd round, his opponent was exactly Pablo Carreno-Busta and the player from Belgium won 3:0 after 2 tiebreaks and 7-5 in the 3rd set. In the round of 16, Goffin had no chance against Roger Federer who beat him 6-2, 6-2, 6-0. Before the US Open David lost in the 1st round in Montreal – Masters from Guido Pella but in Cincinnati, he makes it to the final but he was beaten by Daniil Medvedev in 2 sets. His last tournament before flying to Japan was in Metz where in the round of 16, he played, yes, again against Pablo Carreno-Busta and this time the Spanish won 2:0 sets.
Pablo Carreno-Busta world number 63 is going to Japan after winning in the Chengdu. In the tournament in China, he beat Radu Albot, Benoit Paire, Christian Garin, and Denis Shapovalov in the semifinal 2:0 to make it to the final. In the final, his opponent was world number 71, Alexander Bublik who won the 1st set but the Spanish won the 2nd and after tiebreak in the 3rd Carreno-Busta was the winner of the tournament. In Metz, he has to beat Julian Lenz in the 1st round to make it to the round of 16 where he beat David Goffin but after that victory, he lost in the quarterfinal from Aljaz Bedene.
Goffin and Carreno-Busta played four times against each other and the Spanish had 3 wins. Despite that David Goffin is the favorite but I don’t think that he will beat Pablo Carreno-Busta who just won a title in Asia and will have a lot of self-confidence which I think will help him to make it throw the 1st round in Tokyo.
