Glenswilly – Four Masters Match Prediction | 16-09-2019 13:00

And while Murphy, named on the RTE Sunday Game team of the year the night before, kicked Glenswillys second point when he converted a close-in free - after referee Enda McFeely spotted Kevin Breslin tugging the county skippers jersey- to make it a two point game, Four Masters continued to take the game to the locals and thanks to points from Caolan McLoughey and McDaid the Masters were 0-6 to 0-2 up with five minutes left in the half.

Fabio Fognini won the biggest title of his career on the clay earlier this year at the Monte Carlo Masters. For many followers of the game, it was great to see Fognini reach his potential as on his day, the Italian has the game to beat any player in the world. Since the,n though, its been up and down for Fognini. A run to the third round at Wimbledon was overshadow by controversial comments he made about playing on Court 14.

Two more frees and the gaps was cut again, 0-10 to 0-6, but any notion that Four Masters might get hemmed in too much was proven to be a myth when they fashioned a lightening breakaway with Barry Dunnion and Leo McHugh combining before Jamie Crawford drove wide when in on goal. They appeared to be weathering the storm. Glenswilly finally scored from play with Murphy on the mark on 34 minutes.

Many view Molleker as having great potential and he is in with a chance against the Italian. Its tough to predict this one. On his day, Fognini could record a straight sets victory. German qualifier Rudolf Molleker achieved the biggest win of his career in the opening round in defeating the defending champion Leonardo Mayer in straight sets.

In his opening round of Monte Carlo, he beat a formidable clay court opponent in Federico Delbonis, securing the straight sets win. In their previous match, however, Thiem played brilliantly, using controlled aggression to dominate the match against the Slovakian. Martin Klizans season has been steady, although he only won two matches in a row at a tournament one time, in Sofia. Klizan, somewhat surprisingly, has the lead in the head to head at 3-2, including a 2-0 record on clay. All things considered, however, just trust Thiem more to get it done at a Masters 1000 event. Klizan plays a very high-risky style of tennis, and the result of the match could come down to whether his game is clicking or not.

FOUR MASTERS: Martin Cassidy; Cathal Canavan, Kevin Breslin, Brian Fegan; John Boyle (0-1), Barry Dunnion, Sean OKennedy (1-0); Leo McHugh, Kevin McBrearty (0-2); Jamie Crawford (0-1), Caolan Loughney (0-2), Emmett Doogan; Neil Ward, Paddy Reid, Conor McDaid (1-5,4f).

Home favourite Alexander Zverev has endured a tough season both on and off the court. However, in the opening round, the German showed glimpses of his best tennis with an emphatic straight sets victory over the talented Chilean Nicolas Jarry. However, it makes sense as clay has been the surface that has given him the most success in his career. Many people were surprised at Zverev playing this event.

Krajinovic may not possess the power of the Slovakian. Krajinovic has endured a difficult year form-wise and has struggled with injuries. However, he is a more consistent player who has the ability to wear opponents down from the baseline. This promises to be a highly competitive match against two players who enjoy playing on the red dirt. However, in his opening round win, he showcased some brilliant ball-striking, especially on the forehand side.

The ball cannoned down off the underside of the crossbar;Crawford followed up only to see Martin Cassidy, the Masters netminder, bravely spread himself but it seemed irrelevant as the green flag was raised by an umpire. However, the decision was made by match referee Enda McFeely and the umpires that there would be a free put for a free against Crawford for square ball. Saying that, the umpires crossing of the flags to show that offence never happened.

Against Federico Delbonis, Zverev will not have a straightforward match. Clay is also the Argentines most successful surface, and when they played earlier this year in the semi-finals in Geneva, that went to three sets, with the German finally coming out on top. This is a match that will be predominantly played from the baseline. Zverev has more power than Delbonis; however, the Argentine is a great mover on the red dirt.

However, in their previous two matchups, Herbert has been only able to get a set, although both matches were on hard courts. He has not won consecutive matches since Montpellier in February. This match will come down to whether Herbert can serve well enough to keep sets close, and if he can attack the Nishikori second serve. If Herbert can do that, then he can win this match. However, today, Herbert picked up a huge straight set win over Fernando Verdasco, proving that he will provide Nishikori with a stern test. However, I dont think he will execute at a high enough level and Nishikori will force Herbert into too many long rallies for the Frenchmans taste. Struggling to find form is something that Herbert has struggled with recently.

33 in the World, whereas his opponent, Zverev, is No. A blockbuster second round matchup features rising stars Felix Auger-Aliassime and Alexander Zverev. Auger-Aliassime is truly rocketing up the rankings, buoyed by his runner-up at the ATP 500 event in Rio de Janeiro. Auger-Aliassime is currently No. Zverev has been towards the top of the rankings for quite some time now, giving the 21 year old a veteran feel. 3 in the World.

One of the first matches of the day features World No. 6 Kei Nishikori taking on Frenchman Pierre-Hugues Herbert. After starting the season on such a high in Brisbane, Melbourne, and Rotterdam, Nishikori is suddenly struggling to find form. In fact, Nishikori only won one match between the two tournaments in Indian Wells and Miami, going 1-2 over that span. This will be Nishikoris first match on clay this season, having struggled during the Sunshine Double.
