Nikoloz Basilashvili (Geo) vs. Dominic Thiem (Aut) – Score prediction (10.10.2019)

Overview.

Nikoloz Basilashvili raced to a straight-set win when the pair met once in the round of 16 in Sofia two years ago. The Georgian is capable of challenging any player on his day, but the form in the run-up to this week make Dominic Thiem the favorite to level the H2H series.

Dominic Thiem was made to work hard for the win by the reigning ATP Chengdu champion Pablo Carreno Busta in the second round of Shanghai Masters. In a closely-contested first set that was concluded in over an hour, the Austrian saved three consecutive set points before getting the job done in the tiebreaker, 7-6 6-3.
The top-ranked Austrian would be relieved after ending up on the winning side of a tough battle as all his previous four appearances in Shanghai Masters ended in the second round (between 2014-2018). Dominic Thiem is currently on a six-match winning streak as he started the Asian swing by lifting the title in Beijing last week, where he defeated the likes of former world #1 Andy Murray and Stefanos Tsitsipas.

World #5 Dominic Thiem had a very ordinary record on outdoor hardcourt before 2019 but has managed to win two titles on the surface so far in 2019, including the biggest title of his career in Indian Wells where he defeated the defending champion Roger Federer in the title-decider.Like his opponent Dominic Thiem, Nikoloz Basilashvili also posted his best result in Shanghai Masters in five appearances with a three-set win over Benoit Paire in the second round. It was his second three-setter of the week as he needed a comeback effort against Radu Albot in the first round.

The Georgian #1 Basilashvili attained his career-high ranking of #16 a few months ago but exited the top 20 group after failing to defend the title in Beijing last week. He successfully defended the ATP Hamburg title in July but couldn’t do the same in Beijing.
