I want Julien to finally win his first title. I mean, even Kukushkin, Kunitsyn, Golubev, Volandri, Sweeting (!), Mello etc. have won a title and Benneteau is MUCH better and more complete player than they are.
I'm always confused with Benneteau. He drops in form and falls in the rankings, then rises up to a career high, then falls again, then rises up to a career high and then falls again etc. Very inconsistent.
i expect a tight, physical match as both players are peaking. benneteau won handily at the uso but istocir has improved significantly in the off-season and he’s now brimming with confidence. a raonic vs. istocir final would be far more appealing so i’ll take denis with the upset in three :devil:
