Francisco Cerundolo vs Andrey Rublev – Match Predictions
Andrey Rublev to Win
Rublev boasts an impressive career record of 7-1 in the semifinals of tour-level events on clay, making him a formidable force on this surface. He was on the wrong end of a 2-0 result against Cerundolo at Hamburg last year and the Russian will be looking to put that record straight. While the Argentine has been on an impressive 18-10 record this year but it pales in comparison to the 16-4 registered by Rublev on clay this year.
2-1 to Andrey Rublev
With the exception of his straight-set victories over Zverev and Kotov, Rublev’s previous four matches on clay have seen him accrue sets to his rivals. Cerundolo has impressed in his recent outings and after a stuttering start raced to 11 wins and four losses in his last four clay court tournament appearances. He has taken sets and games against the best and will test Rublev’s resolve. The Russian ace’s quality will show but he will get bloodied but should take the meeting 2-1.
