In the semifinals of the challenger in Camper, Canadian Vashek Pospisil will play against Hiroki Moriya from Japan.
The 31-year-old Canadian continues to show confident form at the tournament in Kemper. Yesterday, in the semifinals, Pospisil dealt with Tim van Rijthoven from the Netherlands in two sets. In the first set, both tennis players worked exclusively on their serve, as a result, it came to a tie-break, where the Canadian turned out to be stronger – 7:6 (7:3). In the second set, the game started uneasily for both players, but initially Vashek and Tim kept the games on their serves, which restored their confidence for a while. At the same time, in the middle of the game, Pospisil was still able to make a break, and then competently bring the matter to victory with a score of 6:4.
But this 31-year-old representative of Japan continues to surprise. Yesterday, in the semifinals, Moriya was able to beat Frenchman Alexander Muller in two sets. From the very beginning of the match, Muller's game did not go. The Frenchman immediately lost two consecutive games on his serve and, of course, already with the score 4:0, Moriya could not allow his opponent to return to the game, as a result, the game ended with a score of 6:2 in favor of the Japanese. In the second set, there could already be a reverse picture, Muller quickly made a break and led at some point with a score of 2:0, but then the Frenchman allowed Hiroki to make a reverse break, and after that he completely took the lead. Moriya took a total of four games in a row and led with a break, but Alexander did not want to just give up the match and found the strength to win back. It seemed that things were going to a tie-break, but at the very end Muller started to fail again and eventually lost the set with a score of 7:5.
Given the difference in class, Vashek Pospisil looks like a deserved favorite here, Moria can only count on his perfect game, as well as the factor that Vashek will forget how to work on his own serve. This is hard to believe, and therefore it is quite possible to bet on the victory of a Canadian tennis player with a score of 2:0.
