Daniel Evans vs Matteo Arnaldi – Match Predictions

Matteo Arnaldi To Win

Given Evans’ poor run of form, it is difficult to back him despite the gulf in rankings between the two. Moreover, Arnaldi already has two titles under his belt and enters this meeting after making little work of Juame Munar. The 22-year-old is on an eight-match winning streak on clay court and should get over the line against the struggling Evans.

2-1 to Matteo Arnaldi

Arnaldi has only dropped one set in his eight-match winning streak. We believe that number is going to increase against Evans. The 26-year-old Brit stretched his rivals in his last three defeats, shaving off a set in defeat. While he does not have the form on his side after bowing out at the first hurdle in six tournaments this season, Evans should do enough to force three sets. Based on this, we are backing a 2-1 win for the 22-year-old Italian.

Daniel Evans vs Matteo Arnaldi Preview

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

Daniel Evans

The British ace has been down on his luck in 2023. With the exception of his couple of wins in ATP Marrakech, he has been knocked out in the first round on six of the eight tournaments he has participated in. On paper, his matchup against Arnaldi looks easy but he will be ill-advised to take it easy. Evans needs wins under his belt to get his mojo back and will be aiming for a quick result against the 105-ranked Italian.

Matteo Arnaldi

While Evans has struggled in the current campaign, Arnaldi will be pleased with his performances. He triumphed in Tenerife and then added another title under his belt in Murcia. Arnaldi is on an eight-match winning run and has confidence on his side. Moreover, all of these victories have come on clay court surfaces, giving him an edge over his British counterpart.
