Fabio Fognini vs Constant Lestienne – Match Predictions

The combined time spent on the ATP circuit for Fognini and Lestienne stands at over 25 years. It will be put to test as they meet for the first-ever time in the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens.

Constant Lestienne To Win

Fognini has five months removed from his last win on the hard court. The victory over Arthur Fils is a distant memory as he has since lost four successive matches. Lestienne has lost a similar number of matches on a similar surface but has been far more active. His last victory came in the Rotterdam Open, where he made little work of Nikoloz Basilashvili and Maximilian Marterer. The duo, like Fognini, are behind Lestienne in the rankings and a similar fate awaits the Italian in this duel.

Over 22.5 Games

With four successive losses on the hard court for both competitors, it is easy to realize they are making plenty of mistakes. This will be the case again as they meet in the Miami Open. Fognini’s best years are behind him but his doggedness remains. Lestienne still has time on his hand and can take the match into deep waters. Based on this, we are backing the Over 2.5 Games selection in this matchup.

Fabio Fognini vs Constant Lestienne Preview

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in the 2023 campaign.

Fabio Fognini

It has been a frustrating start to the 2023 campaign for Fabio Fognini. The 35-year-old has struggled for results and only has one win and that too came in ATP Rio de Janeiro. That victory on the clay court hardly inspires any confidence and he needs to get out of his rut if he harbours any ambitions of moving up the rankings.

Constant Lestienne

It has been a tough couple of months for Constant Lestiene fans. The Frenchman has bowed out at the first hurdle in his last thre tournaments. These frustrating results came on the back of an impressive outing in ATP Rotterdam where he made it to the 1/16 finals and was denied further passage by current world no. 8 Holger Rune.
