Maxime Cressy to Win
As the Citi Open approaches, both Maxime Cressy and Alexander Shevchenko find themselves in a challenging position, struggling with a poor run of form. They have only claimed a solitary win in their last five matches. While Shevchenko is turning his attention towards the hard court since his first-round ousting in Miami Open, Cressy has been more busy. He triumphed against talented teenager, Michelsen in Atlanta. While the American’s recent performances on the tour have been disappointing, he should have enough in the tank to progress to the next round against an equally struggling rival.
2-0 to Maxime Cressy
After toiling on clay and missing out on the grass court swing with a solitary outing in Wimbledon, Shevchenko has to make quick adjustments. Hard courts are not as forgiving and rivals are faster. Cressy profited from playing in familiar surroundings in Atlanta and got a win against a talented rival in the process. His powerful serve will play a big factor and we expect it to help him triumph against his Russian rival.
