The last time I covered the Czech TT Star Series, Tomas Tregler was on an absolute roll about two weeks ago. He couldn’t be stopped and was rolling over all of the competition that was put in front of him. From what I’ve seen recently, Tregler is still rolling despite having a hiccup here and there.
It has been a long time since Tregler has lost consecutive matches. He has a major threat to win the grand final of this tournament, but there are a few players in the TT Star Series in Czechia that are solid players. David Reitspies and Tomas Konecny to name a couple more are quality players.
The TT Star Series is not to be confused with the Czech Liga Pro. There aren’t as many players in the TT Star Series, but the quality of players is better. It’s a harder chore to qualify for the Liga Pro than the Star Series in Czechia. That said, there are a couple of players in this tournament that probably belong playing in the Liga Pro instead of the Star Series.
Instead of getting blown out every match, they’d probably stand a better chance of competing over there. The TT Star Series is one of the biggest leagues in the world in operation on Monday. No, really. There are no major soccer matches today and there is only one lone NRL match in Australia. The KBO and CPBL are also off on Monday.
There are a handful of table tennis tournaments playing today as well. Hold tight, though, because sports leagues are going to be returning in bunches this month and in July. That includes in North America with the NBA restarting in late July at Disney World.
The NHL is currently in the final stages of their plan. Over in Czechia, table tennis players have played through everything and will be out again in Prague on Monday. Head below for our free Czech TT Star Series Pick between Tomas Tregler vs. Dmitrij Prokopcov on June 8, 2020.
Tomas Tregler vs. Dmitrij Prokopcov Czech TT Star Series Table Tennis Betting Odds:
Tomas Tregler vs. Dmitrij Prokopcov Prediction:
Tomas Tregler has been in top form for well over a month now. Since falling into a rut around April 20, Tregler has been on fire at the table tennis courts. He hasn’t lost more than two matches in a row since losing six straight, and back-to-back losses have only occurred four times since mid-April.
In Tregler’s previous 18 matches he’s gone 15-3. Since the six-match losing streak for Tregler, he’s posted a terrific record of 63-17. For a table tennis player with that large of a sample size, that’s an excellent mark for Tregler. And in his last seven matches going into today, Tregler has gone 6-1. That includes a straight set win over Dmitrij Prokopcov on June 2.
Prokopcov is sort of stuck in no man’s land, at least over the last few months. He is stuck between being a mid-tier and upper-tier player in the TT Star Series. Given his results most recently, Prokopcov has an argument to make that he’s an elite player. Prokopcov goes into Monday with eight straight wins. That said, the only impressive win was against Tomas Konecny. The other opponents weren’t too good. The last loss he’s had was on June 2 against Tregler.
Tregler swept Prokopcov in that match in straight sets. He won 11-8, 12-10, 11-8 for his ninth win against Prokopcov in his career. In his previous three matches against Prokopcov, Tregler has won all of them by a combined score of 9-4. Tregler is also 5-2 in his last seven outings against Prokopcov and 9-5 overall. I lean towards Tregler getting it done here. This match is scheduled for 5:15 a.m. EST.
