Ilya Ivashka vs Karen Khachanov – Match Predictions

2-0 to Karen Khachanov

It is difficult to bet against Karen Khachanov given his current form. He made little work of Alejandro Davidovich Fokina in the first round, breaking the Spaniard’s serve on the four occasions that were presented. Ilya Ivashka gave away six break points against a struggling Daniel Evans and looks unlikely to stop the Russian’s onslaught. Based on this, we are backing a straight sets victory for Khachanov, the same set result that has appeared in their last two meetings.

Under 21.5 Games

Out of Ivashka’s three appearances at Monte Carlo Masters, two have seen three sets and more than 21.5 games. That does not seem to be a probable outcome against Khachanov,  the beaten semi-finalist at Australian and Miami Open. The Russian ace did not miss a beat in his first-round victory over Spaniard Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, capitalizing on every serve break opportunity, while saving three of his own breakpoints.
