Jiri Lehecka vs Jan-Lennard Struff – Match Predictions

Jan-Lennard Struff to Win

Jan-Lennard Struff enters this match as the clear favourite against Jiri Lehecka, who has been struggling lately. Lehecka has lost his last four matches and has only managed to claim a single set during this disappointing run. In contrast, Struff has been punching above his weight, displaying exceptional form on clay. He recently reached the finals at the Madrid Masters, defeating top-ranked players like Stefanos Tsitsipas along the way. With his strong clay court performances and Lehecka’s recent struggles, it seems highly likely that Struff will emerge victorious in this matchup.

Under 36.5 Games

The match has all the ingredients of being a relatively short affair, with the possibility of finishing under 36.5 games. Struff has been displaying exceptional performances, particularly on clay, where he has a clear preference and has achieved notable results. On the other hand, Lehecka has been struggling, losing his last four matches and failing to find his winning rhythm. In his recent defeats, he was resoundingly beaten by Alexander Shevchenko, claiming only one game in each set. Against a player of similar ranking and playing pedigree like Miomir Kecmanovic, Lehecka was swiftly dispatched in the second set, being shut out completely. Based on this contrasting form and recent results, it appears likely that this match will see a relatively quick conclusion with fewer than 36.5 games.

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in the French Open.

Jiri Lehecka

In his breakthrough season last year, ranked #40 in the world, Lehecka struggled in the early rounds of Grand Slam tournaments. However, he turned the tide at this year’s Australian Open, defeating formidable opponents like Borna Coric, Felix Auger Aliassime, and Cameron Norrie to reach the quarterfinals and make his mark. After an early Rome Masters exit, the young Czech player decided to compete in a Challenger event in Turin but his choice didn’t go as planned and he retired from the match against Aleksandr Braynin after losing four consecutive games.

Jan-Lennard Struff

Struff has been on a remarkable rise in the ATP rankings, climbing over 100 spots to achieve his career-high position at #26. He has also become the new top-ranked German player, thanks to his strong showings during the European clay swing. As a qualifier, he pulled off an upset by defeating Casper Ruud on his way to the quarterfinals at the Monte Carlo Masters. At the Madrid Masters, he reached the finals after defeating Stefanos Tsitsipas, although he initially needed a lucky loser spot to enter the main draw.
