After a breakthrough tournament in Monte-Carlo, where he reached his first Masters 1000 final, Davidovich Fokina has struggled to back that up this season. The Spaniard will be hoping that a second week performance at the US Open is the perfect platform to build on as the end of the season approaches over the next couple of months.
Murray will need to be aggressive on return and be aggressive on his first shot after the serve to stand a chance against Davidovich Fokina’s athleticism and power from the baseline. The Spaniard will look to create angles and use depth to put Murray into uncomfortable positions in the court, forcing the errors from the Brit.
One thing is guaranteed in this match, apart from Davidovich Fokina falling over, and that is entertainment. The Spaniard’s recent form gives him the slight edge in what should be a tight contest.
