Tennis players looking for a fantastic result to help them improve on an inconsistent season. Cincinnati Open 2023 reunites Hubert Hurkacz and Thanasi Kokkinakis for the third time; all of their previous meetings have taken place in the United States.

Hubert Hurkacz vs Thanasi Kokkinakis – match predictions
Cincinnati Open betting tips and Tennis Prediction Today are available on our website.
Hurkacz to win 2-0
The Australian player has won four of his last six matches, but three of those victories have come in qualification. The Polish tennis player won five of his last eight matches, two of which were against Alcaraz and Djokovic, the two finest players in the world at the time. Hurkacz, I believe, performs better in major tournaments, which is why he will win in straight sets.
Under 24.5 total games
Although Kokkinakis has more victories than his opponent, the majority of them have come in Challenger tournaments. The Australian tennis player’s most recent defeats came against players ranked outside the top 20. As a result, I believe this duel will have fewer than 24.5 games.
Hubert Hurkacz vs Thanasi Kokkinakis preview
This and other Cincinnati Open predictions are supported by a useful Hubert Hurkacz vs Thanasi Kokkinakis preview.
This season, the Polish tennis player only won one title, which he won in Marseille. He advanced to the third round in five of the six Masters 100 events in which he competed this season. He advanced to the fourth round of two of the three previous Grand Slams.
His performance has been unsurprising, and he is far from his best. In truth, his results have not been sufficient to re-enter the top ten in the ATP rankings. He lost in the first round of the Cincinnati Open last year, so he has a lot of room to grow.
The Australian tennis player has competed in major tournaments as well as Challengers. His best performances of the year were in Adelaide, where he reached the semifinals, and Manama, where he won his only championship of the year.
However, his Grand Slam or Masters 1000 performance has been disappointing, as his greatest achievement in this type of competition was reaching the third round, which he did only once. He currently has a record of 33 wins and 19 defeats. Although it is not his best season, it is the best of the last seven seasons.
Hurkacz vs Kokkinakis head to head
The tennis players had already had two direct encounters. The first time they met was at the Atlanta Open Qualifying in 2018. They met again in the United States five years later, this time in the second round of the Miami Open..
