Suggested Bet: Correct Set Score Goffin to win 2-1 at 57/20

Goffin recovered from a slow start to win his quarter final whilst Schwartzman came flying out of the blocks to win his last 8 match up. As favourite Goffin gets the vote to come out on top but it could go all the way.


Marin Cilic v Adrian Mannarino

Marin Cilic, the top seed, took just 53 minutes in the last 8 to defeat Ryan Harrison.Cilic was in great form breaking Harrison’s serve 5 times to win in straight sets 6-2 and 6-0.  Cilic was also in the Tokyo semi-finals last year.

He now faces Adrian Mannarino who also had a straight set (6-2, 6-4) victory over the Japanese player Yuichi Sugita in a quarter-final match which took 1 hour and 52 minutes to complete.  This was his 27th match win of the year.
