Our Prediction:

Andy Murray will win

Andy Murray – Norbert Gombos Match Prediction | 27-08-2019

Murray saved a break point in the second game of the second set, breaking in game three when Gombos' backhand found the net and staying ahead until game eight when thew Slovak forced an error with a deep return to level the score at 4-4. A service winner pushed the Briton 5-2 in front, holding at 15 in game nine for a 6-3 after another forehand mistake from Norbert.

But he has also been playing some excellent tennis to beat Thai-Son Kwiatkowski, Gilles Simon and Yoshihito Nishioka, all without dropping a set. But up against the Australians excellent serve and forehand, it is hard to see Gombos, who lost the pairs only previous meeting, enjoying much success. Norbert Gombos, meanwhile, has taken full advantage of his spot in the draw as a lucky loser. Not for the first time, Nick Kyrgios courted controversy at the Washington Open after arguing with umpire Fergus Murphy, before refusing to shake the Irishmans hand.

Andy Murray: results and record

Andy could have been more aggressive but his overall level was more than fine, keeping the pressure on the opponent on the return and doing an excellent job in repelling those break points to claim the win in style. The first break of the match came when Gombos sent a forehand long in game four, with the Slovak pulling it back in the next game before Andy grabbed another break a few minutes later thanks to another loose forehand from the 3rd seed.

Now, this is whether he can follow that upp or not with a second round tie against Slovakian Norbert Gombos. Andy Murray finally got his first singles win of 2019. We still have doubts over his fitness levels and this was just a balanced level to get into the action of things. However, Gombos does struggle with hard hitters of the variety like Murray. So we would imagine such a situation that he could one up his opposition pretty quickly in the opening set. So Murray beating such a lowly ranked player last round should not be such a booster. Gombos is no mean player, we must consider. Cheers.

Germanys Peter Gojowczyk has played excellent tennis to reach the last eight at the Washington Open, not least in his straight sets win over Milos Raonic. He has been dictating with his forehand and using his first serve to good effect, though his second serve has looked vulnerable. Nonetheless, if he can stay aggressive against Gojowczyk and find a way to bring his forehand into the rally early, he should be able to find a path to victory. But Kyle Edmund, who has struggled this year in no small part due to injury, has looked back to something approaching his best so far in D.C.

Washington Open Quarterfinal Predictions

Tsitsipas has improved considerably in the intervening period and should have just enough to edge out the talented Paire. In their only previous encounter, it was Paire who emerged a 6-2 6-4 victor, though that match did come two years ago in Metz. Stefanos Tsitsipas has so far worn the tag of top seed easily at the Washington Open, beating Tommy Paul and Jordan Thompson in straight sets. But the in-form Benoit Paire, twice a titlist on the ATP tour already this season, looks set to give the Greek a stern test.
