All time Dubai’s favorite Tennis player Roger Federer will perform live tonight at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium in a battle against Marton Fucsovics. Will Federer manage to qualify for the next round of the prestigious Dubai Tennis Tournament?
|For the second time in two days, Roger Federer was taken to the distance by experienced opponents, but the Swiss did enough to come out unscathed — against Fernando Verdasco in the second round and Philipp Kohlschreiber in the first.|
|The last time Roger Federer played two consecutive three-set matches in an ATP World Tour event was at Shanghai Masters 2018 where he defeated Kei Nishikori in the quarterfinal before failing against Borna Coric in the semifinal (could face Coric in the semifinal of Dubai this week).|
|World #7 Roger Federer heads into this clash with a terrific 10-0 record in the quarterfinal of ATP Dubai with the recent such win coming against Richard Gasquet in 2015. Federer is a seven-time champion of ATP Dubai but opted to take a break during this period of the calendar in 2018.|
|Roger Federer, who failed to defend his Australian Open and Rotterdam title earlier this season, played ten quarterfinal matches on tour last year and managed to win nine of them — lost to Kevin Anderson in Wimbledon after leading the match by two sets to 0.|
|Marton Fucsovics avoided his second consecutive second-round exit from a Middle East tournament by brushing aside Jan Lennard Struff on Wednesday. Unlike Roger Federer, the Hungarian is yet to drop a set this week (defeated Damir Dzumhur in R1).|
|This is turning out to be an excellent start to the season for Marton Fucsovics as the match against Roger Federer will be his third consecutive quarterfinal appearance on the main tour — SF at Sofia and QF at Rotterdam — which is quite an achievement considering he made his tour-level quarterfinal debut only at Basel 2017.|
|Roger Federer scored a routine straight set win they met once in the round of 16 at Australian Open last year, and he is heavily favored to deliver a similar result this Thursday as well. That said, The Swiss’ shaky performance in the previous two rounds should give a lot of encouragement for Marton Fucsovics, who is playing the best tennis of his career at the moment.|
