Reilly Opelka – Peter Gojowczyk: Prediction
Gojowczyk have 2-0 with Opelka 2-0 in direct matches. He played against players who play like Opelka and won against them. Gojowczyk has a service as good as Opelka, but it has a more technical style and can walk Opelka on the field. I think he is ready for this match from any point of view and will win this match.
