Daniel Galan vs Mackenzie McDonald – Match Predictions

With Daniel Galan and Mackenzie McDonald setting their sights on a place in the next round, these are our free predictions and tips for this match

Mackenzie McDonald to Take it in Straight Sets

It’s important to point out that Daniel Elahi Galan is a clay court specialist, who tends to struggle a lot on hard courts. The Colombian has found it difficult to win matches for a few months now. He has lost nine of his last 10 singles matches dating back to October last year. Interestingly, eight of those losses came in straight sets. Although Mackenzie McDonald isn’t exactly enjoying the best form of his life at the moment, he has fared a lot better than Daniel Galan recently. Keeping in mind that McDonald won six of his last nine singles matches, we are fairly confident that he’ll win in straight sets.

Under 20.5 Total Games

We’ve already established that Daniel Galan lost nine of his last 10 singles matches. It’s also worth mentioning that most of those matches went under the projected total. Mackenzie McDonald will have the backing of the home crowd today, and considering Galan’s recent shortcomings, the American should win this in two short sets, surrendering less than eight games along the way. All things considered, this match should go under 20.5 games.

Our predictions for Galan vs McDonald have been sorted out. It’s time to see how these players have fared so far in recent weeks.

Daniel Galan

Things have not gone too well for Daniel Galan in recent weeks, or this season, for that matter. The Colombian managed just one win in his last 10 singles matches across all competitions. Galan crashed out of the first round in six of the last seven tournaments he entered, and he’ll hope to avoid another first round defeat here.

Mackenzie McDonald

On the other hand, Mackenzie McDonald exited the Indian Wells Open in the second round, at the hands of Holger Rune. He has had a fairly decent run these past few weeks, winning six of his last nine matches in singles. McDonald will be eyeing a place in the Miami Open second round, and he’ll fancy his chances against Daniel Galan.
