Andrey Rublev vs Karen Khachanov – Match Predictions

Karen Khachanov To Win

The number 3 Russian made little work of anyone who has stood in his path on the clay court this campaign. While Khachanov has steamrolled past his rivals, Rublev found it difficult to get past Ilya Ivashka. With both Russian aces impressing in their duels, it is difficult to choose one over the other. Khachanov did trouble, Daniil Medvedev, in their recent bout, more than what Rublev managed. Given the recent form of Khachanov in the Miami Open and displays in the Monte Carlo Masters, we are backing a win for him.

2-1 to Karen Khachanov

Only one of the four duels between these men has gone this distance of the possible three sets. Moreover, that was back in their 2019 Indian Wells duel. We expect to see that again in their first-ever meeting on a clay court. They are well versed with each other’s playing style and should make for an interesting bout in the Monte Carlo Masters. Rublev showcased his prowess with a come-from-behind victory and will push his compatriot in this duel. As we side with Khachanov in this clay court encounter, it will not come easy and finish with a 2-1 triumph.

Andrey Rublev vs Karen Khachanov Preview

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in Monte Carlo Masters.

Andrey Rublev

The world number 5 had a difficult time getting past Jaume Munar. He managed to save five of the eight break points he accrued and was fortunate to convert six of the ten that presented themselves. He will not be afforded the same luxury against an in-form Khachanov. It is a continuance of his form that led to his ousting at the Miami Open where he failed to push Jannik Sinner and could only save two of the five breakpoints he allowed.

Karen Khachanov

Khachanov defeated Alejandro Davidovich Fokina in the first round and then added Ilya Ivashka’s scalp to his name in the next round. He was sublime against Fokina, converting all four breakpoints and saving the three he allowed. It was more of the same against Ivashka, who he did not allow to break his serve despite giving six opportunities. The win was secured with ease as he broke his rival twice from the three chances he got.
