Marin Cilic vs Alexander Bublik: Betting Tips and Prediction
Marin Cilic showing some improvement
The Croat has not had a good start to the year 2021 so far. He is on an 8-7 win-loss record and comes into this game after a straight-set defeat in the Estoril Semi-Final against Cameron Norrie of England. On clay, Cilic lost his first-round match against David Goffin making his record for this year’s clay season so far 3 wins and two losses.
The 32-year-old has improved as the season moves on reaching his second semi-final of the season in Estoril after Singapore in February. He had some problems with his first serve percentage in his last match against Norrie with just 59%. He needs to improve that area which relies heavily on upon.
Alexander Bublik booming with confidence after good wins
Bublik had a very good tournament in Madrid last week by reaching the Quarter-Finals. He beat Shapovalov and Karatsev en route to the last eight before giving in to Ruud of Norway. Bublik is a very tough competitor who has emerged as one of the black horses on the tour this season.
The 23-year-old Kazakh world number 44 had reached the final in Antalya but retired due to injury. He then reached his second final of the year in Singapore before losing to Alexei Popyrin in three sets. Two quarter-final appearances followed in Miami and Madrid and the Kazakh young player is booming with confidence after beating some top players like Berrettini, Karatsev, and Shapovalov this year.
- Cilic’s three of last five matches ended in three sets
- The last match between Cilic and Bublik ended in three sets
- Four of Bubliks last four matches ended in two sets
Marin Cilic vs Alexander Bublik Prediction
The outcome of the match may be connected to Cilic’s 1st serve percentage. The Croat didn’t serve well in his last two matches with under 60% which is allowing for his opponents to win more games on his serve than usual.
In his match against Karatsev who also has a big serve, Bublik converted 43% of the breakpoints he had in the match. If he can keep that percentage in this match we may see a high total number of games in this one.
We will back total games for this match as it is difficult to predict the outright winner.
For our second prediction, we are going with the match to end in two sets following Bubliks stats.
