Go Soeda vs Aleksandre Metreveli – Prediction (ATP Cup Australia – 06.01.2020)

Soeda (Jpn) vs Metreveli (Geo). Preview and players comparison.

The late withdrawal of Japanese #1 Kei Nishikori gave Go Soeda an opportunity to represent his nation in the ATP Cup, and he made good use of it by delivering a dominant straight-set win over Martin Cuevas, who has played only ten matches on outdoor hardcourt so far in his career. Japan suffered humiliation in the Davis Cup finals last November — 0-3 against Serbia and 1-2 against France — but they have a real good chance of qualifying for the quarterfinal of ATP Cup by strengthening their position in the second place. They defeated Uruguay 3-0 on Saturday and takes on a relatively comfortable opponent on Monday.

Go Soeda revived himself to an extent in 2019 by winning 45 matches at the expense of 27 defeats, making it his best season on tour since winning 45 matches back in 2011 — the year he went 4-0 in Davis Cup singles rubber. Aleksandre Metreveli suffered a crushing 0-6 0-6 defeat at the hands of Roberto Bautista Agut during Georgia’s 0-3 defeat against the reigning Davis Cup champions Spain earlier this week. The result and score wasn’t a big surprise considering the Spaniard’s style of play and the Georgian’s fitness struggles over the last two years.

The 26-year-old Aleksandre Metreveli, who suffered a horror car crash in 2016 and was forced to skip the following two seasons, struggled physically in the final stages of the 2019 season as he pulled out of the first-round match against Zizou Bergs and retired from his first-round match against Kasidit Samrej in the following week. This is yet another excellent opportunity for Go Soeda to give his nation a lead in the ATP Cup as well as bag some valuable ATP Ranking points.
