Betting prediction: Dimitrov to Win
Starting Time: 11/15/2017 - 03:00 PM
In my last pick, I proposed Goffin to win against Nadal at @4.0. Everything was based on the uncertainty about Nadal's physical condition and, as we could see, Rafa was very far from his best level. Therefore, Goffin's victory over Nadal in his first match of the tournament is quite misleading. Nadal seemed to be hampered by a problem in his knee that forced him to retire from the tournament. Pablo Carreño-Busta has replaced him.
Goffin had many chances to close the match before he really did, but he was horrible at the important points. He made many mistakes and we cannot draw positive conclusions from his performance, even though he defeated the number one ATP player. He did not convince me at all. Dimitrov, on the other hand, is playing very well in this last stage of the season and must be much better physically and mentally than Goffin. The Belgian has had a very tight schedule lately and it is very difficult to be in good shape for so long. In addition, he is playing Davis Cup F in less than 2 weeks and I have my doubts about whether he is completely 100%, not only physically but also mentally, for this tournament. Dimitrov is my choice.
