Munar vs Cilic: prediction for the ATP Adelaide 2 match
Jaume Munar takes on Marin Cilic in the Adelaide International 2 match on Wednesday, January 12. Who will progress to the next round of the tournament? Our prediction is in the article below.
Jaume Munar has been a pleasant surprise in the new season. The Spanish tennis player isn't very fond of hard courts, but he has delivered good performance in Australia and ousted Kevin Anderson (6-4, 6-4) and Henry Laaksonen (6-1, 7-5) from the tournament in Melbourne. At the current competition, he started with a confident victory over John Millman (6-2, 6-2).
Marin Cilic has also looked great on the Australian courts. Last week, the Croatian tennis player outplayed Thiago Monteiro (6-4, 7-6) and Laslo Djere (6-3, 6-2) at the Adelaide International 1, and he then yielded to Karen Khachanov in the semi-final match (6-7, 3-6).
Munar played 1 tie-break in the last 5 matches.
Cilic played more than 9 games in the first set in 4 of his last 5 matches.
Munar defeated Anderson, Laaksonen, and Millman in two straight sets, but playing against Cilic will be much harder. Last week, the Croatian reached the semi-finals of the Adelaide International 1, and we can see him repeating that success.
Our prediction - total over 23 games
Cilic is as good as he was last year, so we are expecting his solid performance during the Australian part of the tour. We believe he will win the upcoming match with confidence.
Second bet - handicap (-3) to Cilic
