Radu Albot vs J.J. Wolf – Match Predictions

J.J Wolf 2-0

Wolf has the type of game that may bring him a lot of success on hard surface but the only thing he is missing is consistency. Being 24-years-old, he starts to play more maturely and he will need that against Albot who is definitely the more experienced player. However, Wolf has excellent serve and forehand from the baseline and that will be enough to move forward in straight sets.

Under 21.5 games

Albot proved he is a great fighter in the opening round against Giron and he will go strong in this match as well. However, he simply has not the quality to stay long in the match against Wolf who will get the job done quickly in a match with under 21.5 games in total.
