Marin Cilic vs Philip Kohlschreiber: Prediction and Betting Tips
Marin Cilic is keen on a successful US Open campaign
The 2014 US Open champion Marin Cilic is having a mediocre season in terms of win / loss record. Nonetheless, the former world number three won the title in Stuttgart and reached the semi-final in Singapore and Estoril.
Naturally, Cilic’s style of play makes his favorite surface the grass and has the best record on that surface. As a result, we can see that Croat’s record on hard courts this year is 8-8.
Concluding, Cilic still has many years to play and he wants to improve as he moves on. Hence, the Croat will do his best here to advance as far as possible in this year’s edition.
Cilic Key Stats
- Cilic won 76.4% of the points behind his first serve on hard courts this year
- The Croat played on average 26.4 games per match
- The average number of games won by Cilic is 49.6%
Philipp Kohlschreiber wiil do his best to make it difficult for his opponent
With 20 seasons as a professional in his career, Philipp Kohlschreiber is one of the most experienced players on the Tour. Notably, the 37-year-old has eight titles to his name.
In recent years, Kohlschreiber has decreased the number of his appearances in various tournaments. However, the German played in most of the Grand Slams in the last couple of years.
In fact, two remarkable wins in the French open against Verdasco and Karatsev saw the German reach the third round. In any case, Kohlschreiber is at the end of his career and any positive result along the way is a big bonus.
Kohlschreiber Key Stats
- Kohlschreiber won five of his 11 matches this year
- The German’s first serve percentage is 63%
- 29.3 is the average number of games Kohlschreiber played this year
Marin Cilic vs Philip Kohlschreiber Prediction
These players have met 13 times throughout the years. Although the advantage falls for Kohlschreiber 7-6, the last time they met was in 2018 in Paris and Cilic won.
However, they never met at the US Open and this could be a very interesting matchup. As we can see from the H2H record, the German had no problem in dealing with Cilic’s big-serving style of play. But needs to be seen whether age has its toll on the almost old German.
Vbet is offering odds of 1.26 for a Cilic win. That odd is very low to play for. Hence we will back the total games played in this match.
