Playing styles and prediction

Brooksby’s rise through the ATP rankings has been incredible to witness with a final in Newport and semi-finals in Washington just a couple of the impressive return. The American’s effective returning, incredible athleticism and hard-hitting has seen him already test Novak Djokovic and Alexander Zverev at a high level.

This match will be a battle between two players who are determined to finish matches the long way but both players who have incredible athleticism. The American will look to expose Murray’s second serve and win the crucial points on return while the former champion will look to be as aggressive as possible. Experience should prevail here but it should be an entertaining contest.

Prediction: Murray in three sets.
