Goffin vs Tiafoe: prediction for the Wimbledon match
David Goffin was very inconsistent this season and dropped to 58th place in the ATP rankings. Few people expected Goffin's successful performance at Wimbledon, but the Belgian has surprised tennis fans and made it to the last 16 of the London Major. He closed Radu Albot and Sebastian Baez in straight sets before defeating Ugo Humbert in four sets in the third-round match.
Frances Tiafoe has demonstrated a similar performance at the grass-court major. He confidently won his first two matches against Andrea Vavassori and Maximilian Marterer, but had some difficulties in the third round - he dropped one set playing against Alexander Bublik. Tiafoe has never made it past the third round of Wimbledon before.
Tie-breaks were played in 4 of the last 5 head-to-head matches.
In 3 of the last 5 head-to-head games, no more than 9 games were played in the first set.
The opponents have met five times, and the Belgian athlete has won four matches. For example, this year Goffin defeated Tiafoe at Roland Garros. We believe Goffin will be able to overcome Tiafoe and advance to the quarterfinals.
Our prediction - Goffin to win
Tiafoe has a big serve and won't make it easy for Goffin. In the last head-to-head match, the opponents played 40 games. We expect a similarly long battle here and suggest taking the over.
Second bet — total over 37.5 games
