13:00, Jul 02 2021
Andrey Rublev vs Fabio Fognini prediction for Friday’s 1/16 finals clash at the All England Club in London. World number six Andrey Rublev takes on Fabio Fognini ranked 31 in the Wimbledon Grand Slam tournament on grass courts. Follow along for our free prediction and betting tips.

Andrey Rublev at his best looking for a place in the second week

With a record of 6-1 win/loss record on grass this year, Andrey Rublev enters his match in the third round of the Wimbledon Grand Slam tournament with the aim of at least equalling or doing better than his best result in any Grand Slam and that is reaching the quarter-finals. 

The world number six looks very solid in Wimbledon and if he can carry his form to his match against Fognini, the Russian will have a great chance of making it to the second week of the year’s third Grand Slam tournament. 

After a tricky start against Delbonis in his opening match where he lost the first set, Rublev won the match in four and went on to eliminate big-serving Lloyd Harris in the second round in straight sets. The 23-year-old lost his serve just three times in two matches and looks to continue his usual good start to Grand Slams.

Rublev Key Stats

  • Rublev has played 31 games per match in Wimbledon this year
  • The average winners hit by Rublev in Wimbledon is 45
  • Rublev is winning 80% of his first-serve points

Fabio Fognini has to dig deep to get past this round

It hasn’t been the best of seasons so far for Fabio Fognini. The Italian is on a 15-14 win/loss record and before playing in Wimbledon he played only in Eastbourne on grass and lost in the second round to Marin Cilic making his tally on grass this year 3-1 including Wimbledon.

In the first round, the Italian beat clay specialist Albert Ramos-Vinolas in three sets in just over two hours. The second-round match was tricky for Fognini as he lost his focus after winning the opening two sets. He lost the third 6-0 after a dreadful display but held his ground in the fourth and finished it 6-4.

Fognini can be very temperamental and lose focus in a match at any time. He has the ability to find incredible angles off his groundstrokes and likes to dictate the rallies. But lacks a big serve and his temper tends to control his game often.

Fognini Key Stats

  • Fognini has played 33 games per match in Wimbledon this year
  • The average points won by Fignini on the first serve is 76%
  • Fognini has hit 48.5 winners per match 

Andrey Rublev vs Fabio Fognini Prediction

This is the first meeting between these two players on grass. In the H2H meetings, Fognini leads by 5-2. The most recent match was this year at the ATP cup in Australia where Rublev won. 

The Russian is the better player in terms of serve and forehand and those are key weapons to possess on grass. Fognini is one of the best returners but he hasn’t played against big servers yet.

We think Rublev has a better chance of winning this if can move Fognini around the court and vary his shots between power and drop shots and probably coming often to the net.
