Alex de Minaur vs J J Wolf – match predictions

As Alex de Minaur and Jeffrey John Wolf battle for a round of 32 spot, these are our predictions and tips for this match

Alex de Minaur to come out on top

We would like to point out that Jeffrey John Wolf is coming off back-to-back straight sets losses against Tallon Griekspoor and Alejandro Davidovich Fokina. The American player has not been very consistent lately; he has as many wins as he has losses in his last 18 matches. On the other hand, Alex de Minaur earned his place in the final of the Canadian Open last week, defeating players like Daniil Medvedev, Cameron Norrie and Taylor Fritz. Considering the Australian won the only other encounter between these players, we believe he’ll advance to the next round when it’s all said and done.

Minimum sets

Next, let’s take a look at the ‘total sets’ market. It’s worth mentioning that these players have been involved in a lot of three-setters lately. While six of Alex de Minaur’s last seven singles matches ended in two sets, all of Jeffrey John Wolf’s last 10 matches ended in minimum sets (including best-of-five tournaments). Bearing in mind that these two played out a two-setter when they met last year, we should expect this match to end in straight sets.

Alex de Minaur

Alex de Minaur looked really solid at the Canadian Open last week; as he held his own against Daniil Medvedev, Cameron Norrie and Taylor Fritz en route to the final. The Australian player has five wins in his last six matches, and he’ll fancy his chances against J J Wolf.

Jeffrey John Wolf

Unlike today’s opponent, J J Wolf has not particularly enjoyed his best form lately; as he lost his last two matches in straight sets.
