The night session of Day 5 of the Ultimate Tennis Showdown is bringing us some very exciting matchups. Dustin Brown meets the young gun, Corentin Moutet, in what is going to be a very tight match, and Richard Gasquet meets Matteo Berrettini in what is going to be art vs. power. Who will come out on top on Saturday night?
Corentin Moutet vs. Dustin Brown:
Corentin Moutet is here and he is showing us how good he is going to be. Moutet is one of the few youngsters on tour who does not care who they are playing, they just want to win at all cost. Moutet has that determination which makes a champion and it will be very interesting to see his career evolve in the next few years. Moutet will be meeting one of the most experienced players on the ATP Tour, Dustin Brown in what is a necessary victory for the German. Dustin Brown has gone 0-4 at the Ultimate Tennis Showdown, but it is hard to see him getting a win under his belt. Brown is no longer good, he is more of an entertaining player with his trick shots and fun rallies, but he is not a competitor. Moutet will take advantage of the lack of form in Brown's game.
Pick: Corentin Moutet
Richard Gasquet vs. Matteo Berrettini:
Richard Gasquet meets Matteo Berrettini in what is going to be a very tight encounter on Saturday night. Matteo Berrettini has been superb here, winning 3 out of 4 matches and showing us how strong his game is. Berrettini is very talented and is showing us that he is going to remain in the top 10 if he continues to play like this. However, this is going to be Berrettini's toughest encounter as he meets Richard Gasquet. Gasquet is on top of his game at the moment and he is just an artist on the tennis court. Gasquet has already beaten Stefanos Tsitsipas and he will fancy his chances against Matteo Berrettini. What is really going to be the difference in this match I think is Gasquet's one-handed backhand. Gasquet is one of the few players who is able to use their opponents' strengths to their advantage. Berrettini will not be able to power through Gasquet easily, and this will result in Gasquet winning more points and the match.
Pick: Richard Gasquet
