15:00, May 14 2021
Federico Delbonis vs Reilly Opelka prediction for Friday’s Quarter-Final of the ATP Roma Open in Rome, Italy. World number 64 Federico Delbonis takes on the 47 ranked Reilly Opelka in a surprise Quarter-Final in Rome. Read along for our free prediction and betting tips.

Federico Delbonis looking for his first Masters semi-final

Continuing his excellent form in Rome this week, Federico Delbonis secured his place in the Quarter-Finals after beating world number 21 Felix Auger Aliassime. After an exchange of a couple of breaks, the Argentine won the first set in a tiebreak. Delbonis then dominated the second set and cruised to a 6-1 win to finish the match in two sets.

The 30-year-old World number 64 had not been able to pass the first round in his previous four appearances in Rome. After beating three top 30 players this year in Rome,  Delbonis will make his first quarterfinal 1000 Masters appearance.

Reilly Opelka aiming for a first semi-final appearance

Firing 18 Aces and breaking Aslan Karatsev’s serve once in the second set, Reilly Opelka became the seventh player to beat the high-flying Russian, favorite to win this match. Winning three consecutive matches in straight sets, and reaching the quarterfinal in Rome in his first main draw appearance is considered to be an excellent result.

The 23-year-old Opelka was winless in his last six matches after a second-round appearance in the Australian Open. Opelka possesses a very hard first serve. He won 81% of the points behind his first serve which will be key in his match against Delbonis.

Key Stats

  • Opelka has hit 59 Aces in his three matches
  • Delbonis has hit on average 28.4 winners per match
  • Opelka has hit an average of 31.3 winners per match
  • Opelka is not broken in three matches
  • Delbonis was broken five times in five matches

Federico Delbonis vs Reilly Opelka Prediction

It is a difficult match to predict. Both players are playing well. Delbonis is winning his matches with some difficulty. Opelka relies heavily on his first serve. The outcome of the match will be dependant on Opelka’s serve percentage and Delbonis’s return.

Delbonis needs to improve on his return of the first serve from his match against Auger Aliassime. The Argentine won just 29% of his opponent’s first serve return.

For our prediction in this match, we will back the bet of both players to win a set.
