You can enjoy our top predictions and tips from across all of today’s fixtures in the BNP Paribas Open. Let’s climb into our two bets in the Kubler vs Dimitrov clash and explain the logic behind them.

Set 1 Total Games – Over 12.5

Kubler is famous for playing every point as if it’s the last and he came through his first round game 6-4, 7-6. We anticipate no breaks of serve across Set 1 with the players having to be separated by a tie-break once the score gets to 6-6.

Jason Kubler to Win a Set – No

Ranked 46 places above his opponent, we expect to see Grigor Dimitrov come through this second round tie in straight sets. The Bulgarian won his first and second round matches at the 2023 Australian Open without dropping a set and we predict that he will have too much quality in both the first and second sets against Jason Kubler.

Jason Kubler vs Grigor Dimitrov Preview

These are two talented players who have experienced plenty of highs and lows across their careers. Let’s learn a little bit more about their recent form and career best performances below.

Jason Kubler

The 29 year old Australian is enjoying his best run of form in the Grand Slams and his current world ranking reflects this. He has got beyond the first round of each of the last four Grand Slams and reached the fourth round at Wimbledon last year. In Melbourne this January, he was eliminated over four sets by Karen Khachanov who went all the way to the semi-final.

Grigor Dimitrov

The 31 year old Bulgarian has been a consistent performer in the big tournaments from 2014 onwards when he reached the quarter final at the Australian Open and the semi-final at Wimbledon. However, from 2020 onwards, he has reached only one quarter final across all the slams. He was beaten in the third round by eventual winner Novak Djokovic in Melbourne earlier this year.

Jason Kubler vs Grigor Dimitrov Head to Head

Although Kubler turned pro in 2011 and Dimitrov three years earlier, this will be the first time they have come up against each other in any event.
