Preview from alexcosta19:
✓ This is a tip for Mikhail Kukushkin to win e/w the St Petersburg ATP 250.
In 2013, Gulbis won, he was 6 seeded. In the semi finals, there were 3 non seeded player. This tournament has a huge prizepool of 1M$, it is big for a 250 and we can see some tanking.
Anyway, Mikhail Kukushkin already won it in 2010 and with the form he is in, he can do it again.
He will meet Istomin in 1R. Knowing that Istomin was in Uzbekistan for Davis Cup playing 10 sets in 72h on clay courts, it's going be hard for Istomin. Mikhail will then play Becker/Qualifier and I think with the form of Becker or a qualify player, he will win.
So for me this is two quite easy rounds. After that, he is more likely to meet Dominic Thiem and I think if this meeting's happen, Kukushkin will win. Kukushkin favorite surface is indoors, he already won a tournament on indoors this year.
Dominic Thiem is no where near a indoor court player, and that will be his first match in indoors of the year, and his first ever in St Petersburg.
If Mikhail survives, he will probably play Berdych in the Semi Finals. That will be a tough one. It is possible that Berdych lose before but anyway, Mikhail did well in last's appereance, beating Dimitrov and posing lot of troubles Cilic another big guy.
I think that Mikhail in form can be really hard to beat for big guy not so so fast as Mikhail just play's some winners all match long.
If Mikhail still survives, he'll then reach the finals and the bet will paid as e/w. I can't predict a final, in ATP 250 we have a lot of surprises and especially when prize pool is huge. Last time the tournament played, 3 non seeded player was in semi finals.
Odds will say that Raonic is more likely to go in Final and that will be a 50/50 match.
