One of the great promises of the last years, winner of 1 Grand Slam but that unfortunately saw his career to be affected by numerous serious injuries that prevented him from reaching the top.
Currently in 19th place in the ATP ranking, he tries to get back to the big spots while still fighting for a place for ATP Finals and it’s up to you to get there.
He is a player with a powerful service and a monstrous right capable of destroying any opponent in a certain day.
He has been in good form and, after winning the ATP 250 in Stockholm, reach the semi-finals here in Basel after defeating João Sousa, Benneteau and Agut.
Marin Cilic, a 29-year-old Croatian and also holder of a Grand Slam title (US Open as well as Argentina), is the current No. 4 in the world and is already guaranteed ATP Finals.
He is a player with a very strong service and a very aggressive right.
He is a player that I saw this week is not at his best but he is still in the semi-finals of this ATP 500, which shows his quality even when he is not at full capacity. Defeated this week Florian Mayer, Coric and Fucsovics.
9-2 Del Potro (5-2 on Fast Floor)
Prognosis Juan Martin Del Potro vs. Marin Cilic:
In conclusion, I think Del Potro will win. In addition to having a style of game that adapts well to Cilic’s style and creates a lot of problems, the Argentine needs to score as much as he can to depend on himself and get to ATP Finals,
which is your big goal at the moment. Having said that, I see a Del Potro with a soul, confident and very motivated to win the match … quality is not lacking.
