Matchup: Egor Gerasimov v Andy Murray
Pick: 8* Gerasimov +3 Games
Murray has started the season 4-1 but his performances in the Biella Challenger event weren’t convincing, culminating in a dreadful 6-2/6-4 defeat to Ilya Marchenko.
He now returns to the ATP Tour but his opponent is a very strong indoor player, this is Gerasimov’s favourite surface.
He has victories against Berrettini & Goffin in these conditions in the past two seasons, he reached the semi-finals in St Petersburg, an ATP 500 event.
Murray’s movement and baseline game is still clearly affected by the hip resurfacing surgery he had in January 2019, he has played well for periods but has struggled since the tour returned in August 2020, expect him to cover this spread. Gerasimov +3 Games.
