Grigor Dimitrov vs Francisco Cerundolo – Match Predictions

Grigor Dimitrov to Win

Despite his higher ranking, it is Cerundolo who is the underdog in this grasscourt battle against Dimitrov. It is understandable as his victory over Tommy Paul left a lot to be desired but it was his tenacity that allowed him to prosper, saving 6 of the 12 breakpoint opportunities that he gave to the American. However, Cerundolo’s powerful serve became more evident as the game progressed. While Dimitrov’s 1st serve percentage stood at 51%, the Argentine finished with 60%. This is the area where matches are won and we are backing him to prove it for a place in the quarter-finals.

Over 21.5 Games

The upcoming duel at the Queen’s Club is expected to be a highly competitive showdown, likely resulting in over 21.5 games. Both players possess the skills and determination to extend the match, showcasing their prowess on the grass court. In his first match on grass, Cerundolo’s hand was forced in a three-set affair that saw 33 games and lasted 149 minutes. On the other hand, Dimitrov’s duel with Emil Ruusuvuori finished an hour earlier and saw only 18 games. The Argentine should put up a bigger fight than Ruusuvuori, and spectators can anticipate an intense battle that exceeds the 21.5 game mark.
