Thanasi Kokkinakis to Win in Straight Sets

Thanasi Kokkinakis is the favourite here, and for good reason. The Australian won the Challenger event at Manama a couple of weeks ago, and has enjoyed some fine form recently. As a matter of fact, Kokkinakis has eight wins in his last nine matches in all competitions.

In contrast, Brandon Holt has struggled to find his form over the past couple of months. He suffered four losses in his last five singles matches. Bearing in mind that Thanasi Kokkinakis won four of his last five matches in straight sets, we believe the Australian will take this in two sets.

Under 21.5 Games

We’ve established that we expect this match to end in two sets. Our next prediction for this match is on the over/under games market. These players are on opposite sides when it comes to recent form. While Kokkinakis won eight of his last nine matches, Holt lost four of his last five. That said, this will likely be a one-sided contest, and we’re going with the under 21.5 games option.

Brandon Holt

On the other hand, Brandon Holt qualified for this year’s Indian Wells tournament as a wildcard. The American hasn’t exactly enjoyed his best form recently, losing four of his last five matches. Can he advance to the second round ahead of his Australian opponent today?
