In the first round, Humbert beat Lorenzo Sonego of Italy in straight sets. Humbert’s high percentage of points won behind the first serve was key for his win.

The world number 26 will be encouraged by the fact that he has beaten Tsitsipas in their two meetings on hard courts. Obviously, Humbert likes the fast courts.

In that match in the Olympics, Titsipas seemed on his way for an easy win after a 6-2 first set. In the second set, the world number three didn’t have the answers for Humberts amazing 94% first serve points won performance. As a result, Tsitsipas lost the second set 7-6.

Ugo Humbert vs Stefanos Tsitsipas Prediction

After the Olympics is over, all attention is drawn towards the final Grand Slam of the year, the US Open. To warm up for the event, a series of tournaments will take place in the coming weeks. One of them is the Toronto Open that has most of the top players playing.

Humbert looked very sharp in his first match against Sonego, especially on his first serve. The Frenchman’s forehand is one of the best on tour at the moment and combined with his first serve, it’s a deadly weapon.

Tsitsipas will have the chance straight away to register his first-ever win against Humbert and avenge his loss in the Olympics. The Greek needs to work on his return and take some risks on his opponent’s second serve.
