Set 1 – Over 10.5 Games  

We expect each set to have a long duration as in their previous h2h, whose first set ended 7-6. Also in Jan Lennard Struff’s last defeats, it took extra sets for there to be a winner. Given these facts, we prefer more than 10.5 games in the first set. Hurkacz already played 2 tiebreaks in this tournament as well as Struff.

Hurkacz to Win 

The previous year Struff won only 1 of his l non-fat marches, while Hurkacz won 5 of 7. Although the German player almost doubles the number of victories of the Polish player, it must be taken into account that half of the tournaments in which Jan Lennard participated were Challenger. All these data make Hubert favourite to win this duel.

Find out what Jan Lennard Struff and Hubert Hurkacz have done this season and other Stuttgart Open predictions.

Jan Lennard Struff 

At 33, Jan Lennard Struff has reached a career-high in the ATP rankings and will continue to improve as he continues to advance through the rounds at the Stuttgart Open 2023. He has three wins so far in this competition for a total of 39 this season.

In the previous round, Richard Gasquet suffered from the German’s intense style of play. Struff converted 2 break points and that was enough to win 6-4 7-5. 

Hubert Hurkacz

The Polish tennis player started the tournament with some complications to defeat his first opponent. However, in the quarter-finals, Hubert played better and needed only 2 sets to defeat Australian Christopher O’Connell.

After that victory, Hurkacz improved on the result he achieved in the last edition of the Stuttgart Open, where he lost in the second round. The 26-year-old Hurkacz, who is now 21 wins, must continue to perform well if he is to return to the top 10 of the ATP rankings.

Struff vs Hurkacz Head to Head

When Hurkacz was just 19 years old, he had his only meeting with Struff. On that occasion, the veteran player won convincingly, winning 3-0 in the 2016 Davis Cup. Although the first set went to a 7-6 tiebreak, Hubert won more easily in the second and third sets.

Since then Hurkacz has been performing better and is even number 8 in the ATP rankings, while Struff will barely have a chance to be top 20 for the first time if he becomes champion.
