Grigor Dimitrov vs Emil Ruusuvuori – Match Predictions
Dimitrov and Russuvuori will play in the round of 16 at the Citi Open and the Bulgarian is a major favorite mostly because he beat Russuvuori twice this year.
Emil Ruusuvuori +3.5 games
Emil Ruusuvuori did not win a single set in the previous two matches against Dimitrov and it is about time for that to happen. The 24-year-old played very well in the previous two matches in Washington DC and will be able to transfer that form to this round as well. Dimitrov is still the favorite to win but Russuvuori will manage to cover the +3.5 games spread.
Over 22.5 games
Both players played a tiebreak in the previous match at the Citi Open and knowing how they both serve, that will probably be the case in this match as well. They are in good shape at most likely, we will not see many breaks which will take the match over 22.5 games in total.
