Andrey Rublev vs Fabio Fognini: Prediction and Betting Tips
Andrey Rublev to bounce back from the Olympics disappointment
World number seven Andrey Rublev is having a great year so far. Despite some disappointments on the way like a first-round exit from the Olympics, Rublev had some notable results. He won the title in Rotterdam and reached the finals of Halle and Monte Carlo. Additionally, the Russian has a record of 20-5 win / loss record on hard courts.
Moreover, Rublev has won six of his eight singles titles in his career on hard courts. Having said that, the fourth seed’s last performance wasn’t his best. It was his defeat to Nishikori in the Olympics opening match where he lost in straight sets. Andrey won just 50% of the points behind his second serve and that allowed Nishikori to break the Russian three times.
Rublev key stats
- Rublev has played on average 21.6 games per match this year on hard courts
- The Russian won 79% of the points on his first serve
- The world number seven is on a 20-5 win / loss record on hard courts this year
Fabio Fognini looking just like himself but winning !!
Fabio Fognini is having a mediocre season with a win / loss record of 19/17. His best performance was reaching the quarter-final of the Monte Carlo Masters. The Italian has nine titles to his name in his career. Of those titles, eight were on clay and just one on a hard court in Los Cabos in 2018. Thus, Fognini’s worst record of his career is on hard courts.
In his first-round match in Toronto against Struff, Fognini had to dig deep to get past the German. The Italian lost the first set in a tiebreak. Afterward in the second set, he had a medical timeout for suffering from the heat. Fognini had his trademark outburst of throwing his racket to the ground but eventually won in three sets.
Fognini Key Stats
- Fognini has played 24.6 games per match on hard courts this year
- The Italian won 50.3% of the games he played
- The points won behind the first serve by Fognini is 69.5%
Andrey Rublev vs Fabio Fognini Prediction
Rublev will take this period of the season very seriously as he prepares for the final Grand Slam of the year, the US Open. Moreover, his best record in the Grand Slams was in the Australian Open where he reached the quarter-finals.
Fognini has seen his form slump in recent months. The Italian looks slower and not 100% fit in his matches. Adding to that, he hasn’t won three matches in a row since the Monte Carlo Open in April.
We think Rublev has the edge in this match and will come on top. The odds for a Rublev win are very low with 1.21 at Vbet. Consequently, we will back the total games played in the match and we are going with under 24.5 total games.
