Andy Murray vs Arthur Cazaux – Match Predictions

Under 22.5 Games

It is worth noting that Cazaux’s semi-final match against Koepfer lasted for 83 minutes, slightly longer than Murray’s match against Borges, which concluded in 74 minutes. The British ace finished his duel in 17 games while the French youngster needed 20 games to get past Koepfer. Given Murray’s results in tournament deciders, we expect this encounter to finish swiftly as well.
