In one of the matches of the 1/8 finals of the US Open, Vashek Pospisil will try to beat Alex De Minaura. Will the Canadian do it? – read our forecast.
Before the start of the tournament, few believed in Pospisil . He did not take part in exhibition matches and missed the Masters in New York. Nevertheless, the lack of playfulness did not stop the Canadian from surprising. First Vashek beat Philip Kohlschreiber (7-6, 7-5, 7-6), and then left no chances for Milos Raonic (6-7, 6-3, 7-6, 6-3). In the 1/16 finals, Pospisil was to meet with the Spaniard Bautista-Agut. It seemed that this time he would cover the racket. But Vashek won again (7-5, 2-6, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2).
It should be noted that in the last match, Pospisil deservedly beat Bautista-Agut. He was not only in no way inferior to the Spaniard in the rallies, but was also better in the game on his serve.
Alex De Minaur
De Minaur continues to win, but with each game the victories are getting harder for him. At first, the Australian did not leave a chance for the Slovak Martin (6-4, 6-3, 7-5). Then Alex gave one game to Frenchman Gasquet (6-4, 6-3, 6-7, 7-5). In his last match, the representative of the kangaroo country with great difficulty passed the Russian Khachanov (6-4, 0-6, 4-6, 6-3, 6-1).
It should be noted that De Minaur cannot boast of stability yet. He is an emotional gambler, so sometimes he can be easily thrown off balance. A fresh example is his last match against Khachanov, where after winning the first set, he gave up the second.
In face-to-face meetings, the score is 2-0 in favor of De Minaura.
This season Pospisil won five matches on hard. De Minaur – six.
In two of the last three matches, both players have lost at least one set.

08/01/18 Vasek Pospisil Alex De Minaur 12
Both players approach this game in great playful form. De Minaur is the favorite, as he has beaten Pospisil twice . However, we doubt an easy walk for an Australian. The Canadian has a strong serve. In addition, he has already managed to win two strong-willed victories at this tournament.
We believe that tennis players will not be able to avoid the exchange of games in this match.
