Zdenek Kolar – Sergiy Stakhovsky Match Prediction | 15-08-2019

At the 2010 US Open, after knocking out Australian Peter Luczak in the first round, Stakhovsky battled into the third round with a five-set win over American qualifier Ryan Harrison, coming back from triple match point down in a fifth-set tiebreaker to win a match marked by dramatic serve-and-volleying, rallies at net, and leaping overheads from both players. In the 3rd Round, Sergiy retired in the second set trailing Feliciano Lpez with an infected toe.

Stakhovsky continued his good form in Davis Cup play with two victories in Ukraine's tie against Latvia in the 1st round Europe/Africa Zone 1 tie.[4] He also won his third career title, beating Janko Tipsarevi in the final of the UNICEF Open a tournament Stakhovsky did not receive a seeding for. At New Haven, he won his fourth career title with highlight wins over Tommy Robredo and Marcos Baghdatis, becoming the first Ukrainian to win two titles in a season since Andrei Medvedev in 1994.

Stakhovsky began 2008 by failing to qualify into several ATP and Challenger tournaments, before qualifying and reaching the quarterfinals of a major Challenger in Poland in February, losing to #68 Simone Bolelli. He went on to win the tournament, defeating top players along the way, including #2 seed Ivo Karlovi in the first round, #8 seed Janko Tipsarevi in the quarterfinals, Simone Bolelli in the semifinals, and #1 seed Ivan Ljubii in the final. He then entered the qualifications of the Zagreb tournament, losing in the final round to Slovenian Bla Kavi, but due to Michal Llodra's withdrawal, he entered the main draw as a lucky loser.

In the season opener in Doha, Stakhovsky lost in the quarter-finals to #3 seed Andy Murray. In Zagreb, as defending champion, he once again made the quarter-finals, losing to Viktor Troicki. Unable to finish the match, Stakhovsky retired hurt. This year has seen Stakhovsky match it with the best in a number of ATP World Tour events. Stakhovsky played Andy Murray once more in the first round of the Barclays Dubai Tennis Championships and after being one set up and with a break in the second, he twisted his ankle whilst trying to volley.

Odds are set at about 2,3 for his win so he is seen as a slight outsider from the bookies and I think siding with him to win this game is the right kind of pick to make here for sure since he is the better player and also playing better right now and I think the odds are just superb for his win in this one. Zdenek Kolar is going to be playing against Sergiy Stakhovsky in this game of tennis here in the Portoroz Challenger today and I think siding with the Czech player is absolutely the right pick to make.

He had more success in doubles, winning two more Challenger titles to get to a career high doubles ranking of #128 in August. He reached his first Challenger singles final in a major tournament in Malaysia in his final tournament of 2007 to finish the year ranked #199 in singles. But by October, his singles ranking had slipped to #294 before he began making progress on the Challenger circuit again. Stakhovsky was not as successful in 2007 in singles. He qualified twice into ATP main draws in January and February, but lost in the first round.

On paper this is a perfect match to go in over. My next tip is going to be match where Molleker and Stakhovsky meet in first round of Halle. I think this match has 3 sets written all over. But he did play some good tennis on grass previous season so it won't be just an easy job for Stakhovsky. Molleker is a home grown player and this is going to be his first match on grass this season. Stakhovsky used to be a great grass player, but he is ageing of course so results are not there last few years, but he is still around.

He spent most of the rest of the year having moderate success at the Challenger level, but did qualify once more into an ATP tournament in Russia in October, reaching the 2nd round. In February, he won his first ATP-level singles match, qualifying into the main draw, where he beat #100 Christophe Rochus and #29 Mario Ani before losing to #37 Robin Sderling in the quarterfinals. Stakhovsky began 2005 where he left off, qualifying into the ATP stop in Qatar in January and losing to Hyung-Taik Lee in the first round. He finished the year ranked #173 in singles.
