Dimitrov will surely begin as the favorite before the match. He is enjoying some superb form and it won’t be surprising if he manages to finish the match in three sets only.
However, Popyrin can prove to be a threat provided he serves well consistently. He will definitely target the backhand of the Belarusian player- which is not as strong as his forehand.
