Despite recent victories, Murray falls in the world rankings. Previously, it occupied 121st place, but now it has moved to 144th place. All of this is due to the odd scoring. Recall that in connection with the coronavirus pandemic, the Asia-Pacific region decided to freeze the points of the participants. The winners were those who successfully performed last year. But those tennis players who are showing results now cannot significantly rise in the world rankings.

The Briton once again received a wild card from the organizers. Due to his low position in the ranking, he did not directly get here. They could not refuse the former first racket of the world. Jenson Brooksby. Brooksby continues to progress by leaps and bounds. This season, the American finally broke into the top 100 in the world rankings. It is currently ranked 56th. All this became possible thanks to the successful performance in Antwerp. At that tournament, Jenson reached the semifinals, where he was defeated by Diego Schwartzman (4-6, 0-6).
Brooksby made it to the main draw in Paris from qualifying. In two games at Bercy, he defeated Peter Gojowczyk (6-3, 4-6, 7-6) and Roberto Carballes-Baena (5-7, 6-4, 6-3).
Forecast- for the match
Murray has improved a lot lately. Of course, he is still far from his best game. Andy lacks stability. But from experience, he beats some of his rivals. For example, last week, he did a similar thing with Hubert Gurkach.
We believe that the Briton will not have any special problems in this confrontation. Most likely, he will be able to beat Brooksby. Our prediction – Andy Murray’s victory with the handicap (-2) of the game for the odds of 1.77.
Brooksby can force the fight on Murray. Still, he’s very good at practical jokes. Even Reilly Opelka wondered how he could beat Jenson. All this should turn into a protracted meeting. Second prediction – total over 21.5 games in 1.65. Want to read more tennis predictions and don’t miss the attractive odds? Subscribe to news99india.in and receive the latest updates to your email.
