Our favourite Jack Draper vs Hubert Hurkacz – match predictions

Both Draper and Hubert Hurkacz bring their unique strengths and stories to the court, promising a battle of resilience and determination on the grand stage. Hurkacz was involved in a five-setter against Marc Huesler while Draper earned a straight-sets victory over Radu Albot.

3-1 to Hubert Hurkacz @ 3/1 (4.00)

Hurkacz’s meeting with Huesler was an epic battle of changing momentum. With the gruelling win under his belt, the Polish ace now turns his attention towards Draper, whom he has beaten twice. On both occasions, a deciding set was needed and we believe it will be the same case this time around. Hurkacz should get the better of the fitness-concerned Draper in a 3-1 win, taking his H2H against him to three matches but will need a deciding set.

Over 39.5 Games @ 37/50 (1.74)

Matches between Hurkacz and Draper have gone the distance each time they have come across each other. With just five matches under his belt following his injury layoff, the British ace has a battle on his hands but impressed in his 3-0 dismantling of 102-ranked Albot. Hurkacz is a different beast and will put him on the backfoot despite battling his own demons. With the duo in contrasting form and over 100 ranking slots between them, we expect a tough battle that sees at least 39.5 games to find a victor.
