Match Predict – Handicap (-2) for Lehecka
Lehecka approached the season in fine form. In January, Jiri reached the quarter-finals of the Australian Open. Now he will play in the semifinals of the major tournaments in Doha, at which he has already beaten two strong players – Ruusuvori and Rublev. We believe he can cope with Murray as well.
Total Games Over 22
Both Lehecka and Murray are approaching the upcoming match in excellent playing conditions, so we can probably expect the match to be a long one. We think it’s worth betting on the game total in this match. Especially as all previous games of Murray in Doha have ended in three sets.
Preliminary review and pre-match prediction for Jiri Lehecka vs Andy Murray
It should be noted that Lehecka will play in the semi-finals for the first time this season. His previous best result this season was reaching the quarter-finals of the Australian Open. Jiri confirms this week that his success at the Australian Open was no fluke.
He is well on his way to securing at least a place in the top 30 this season.
On Thursday, Lehecka defeated Andrey Rublev (4-6, 6-4, 6-3).
The young Czech played so cleanly and confidently after the first set that the Russian eventually lost his nerve.
In the second and third sets, Rublev did not have a single break point, despite his best efforts. That is the best answer to the question of how Lehecka handled the encounter with world #5.
Lehecka has nine wins in his last ten meetings to his credit.

Andy, meanwhile, also continues to impress. Above all, with his steely, unbreakable character.
In the second round, Murray defeated Alexander Zverev (7-6, 2-6, 7-5). In the decisive set, the Briton broke at 5-5. By the way, the game lasted three hours. Despite his age, Andy is in great physical shape.
Before that, Murray defeated Lorenzo Sonego (4-6, 6-1, 7-6). In the third and decisive set, Andy saved three match points.
In the quarter-finals, the former world #2 defeated Alexandre Muller (4-6, 6-1, 6-2). Against the Frenchman, Andy had nine aces, no double faults and five break points out of 11.
Murray has won the Doha tournament twice. However, that was more than a decade ago – 2008 & 2009.
