Fils missed the current week, didn’t move to the Netherlands, but stayed in France to prepare for the Marseille tournament. It makes sense since Fils is a Frenchman. So, he started the tournament with the last 32. He knocked out Gasquet, Bautista Agut, and Gali, lost in the semifinals to Jannik Sinner in two games, who eventually won that tournament. Before the Montpelier indoor, Fils reached the final of the challenger in Kemper but lost to Barrere. Fils’ current tonus is fine. By the way, the 18-year-old talent has already won one indoor challenger in Portugal in 2023.
For Safiullin, the tournament in Marseille will be his third indoor of the season. First, Roman played in Koblenz, Germany, reaching the semifinals but falling to Pospisil. Then Safiullin did not make it to the main draw in Rotterdam. First, Roman beat Ymer and then lost to his brother Mikael in the final qualifying. Now it’s a third match and, frankly, not the best draw, given the Frenchman’s recent results and Safiullin’s defeat to Fils in March 2022.
Expert Betting Tips
A lot of things are on Arthur Fils’ side:
He beat Safiullin a year ago.
Arthur is competing in his own country, and the fans will be on his side.
Fils looks fine at the beginning of 2023.
Arthur reached the finals in Kemper, knocked out Gasquet and Bautista Agut in Montpellier, and played in the semifinals. Roman can’t boast such results, not even close. The Frenchman has a good chance of making it to the second round of the Marseille indoor.
