In the 1/16 finals of the challenger in Antalya, Ryan Peniston from Great Britain will play against the representative of Taiwan Yu Xu.
The 26-year-old representative of Great Britain played very well in Antalya last week at the last tournament. Peniston was able to reach the final, where he was stopped only by Portuguese Nuno Borges - 4:6; 3:6. The final was played on the afternoon of November fifth, Ryan got time to recover and now can try to fight for the title again.
The 22-year-old representative of Taiwan also tried to show himself in Antalya last week, but he was unlucky with the grid. Already in the 1/16 finals, Xu got to the representative of Turkey, Kem Ilkel, who won in two sets – 6:3; 6:4.
Ryan Peniston and Yu Xu played together in the middle of summer at a tournament in Nur Sultan. Peniston was stronger on hard and won the meeting in two sets – 6:3; 6:4.
Considering that Ryan Peniston played well last week in Antalya, it is clear that he is comfortable in Turkey. But Yu Xu still clearly does not pull the level of the game. If Peniston can play without serious mistakes, he will have to win the match in two sets, and therefore we suggest putting less than 20.5 games on the total.
