Can Delbonis end a two-match losing streak against Sousa this Friday?

<div><h2>Federico Delbonis vs Joao Sousa (8)</h2><p><a href="" target="_blank" title="Check Delbonis - Sousa Betting Odds"><strong>Friday, July 19, Bastad</strong></a></p><p>Former Swedish Open finalist Joao Sousa rallied from a set down to overcome Elias Ymer 4-6, 6-4, 6-2 in two hours and 14 minutes. The Portuguese No.1 struggled to find his range early on in the match, winning only two points on Ymer’s first serve in the opening set. However, consistency proved to be an issue for Elias with Sousa facing only one break point in the next two sets. The No.8 seed improved his Bastad record to 7-2 and has reached the quarter-finals or better in all his three appearances at the Swedish Open.</p><p>Sousa will next take on former world No.33 Federico Delbonis for a place in the semi-finals of the Swedish Open. Delbonis extended his winning streak to seven matches on Thursday after a 6-4, 6-4 victory against Pablo Cuevas in just 82 minutes. The 28-year-old broke serve five times and won 47.06% of the points played on Pablo’s serve to reach the quarter-finals in Bastad for the second consecutive year. Federico’s left-handed forehand is a great weapon on clay and the slow court conditions on this surface give him the time he needs to prepare his groundstrokes.</p><p>This will be the sixth official meeting between these two players on the ATP Tour. Sousa leads 3-2 in their head-to-head with the Portuguese winning also their last two encounters. Nevertheless, the slow court conditions at the Swedish Open should benefit Delbonis on this matchup. Federico is a very dangerous player on this surface while Sousa only won 33.33% of the matches played against left-handed players over the last 12 months. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to add the Argentinean’s moneyline to your <a href="" target="_blank" title="More Predictions &amp; Free Tips">betting tips</a> at 1.66 (33/50) with Pinnacle as the best approach for this contest.</p><p><strong>Best Tip: Federico Delbonis to win at 1.66 (33/50) with <a href=";a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Play at this A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Pinnacle</a></strong></p><p><a href=";a=f339dce1-88de-4994-ab6a-c24e019bdf3b&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="" style="width:100%;height:38px" /></a></p></div>
