Kevin Anderson vs Jordan Thompson – Match Predictions

Jordan Thompson to Win

Anderson is returning to hard court action after a 15-month gap. Miami Open 2022 was the last time he played on the surface. He has only won thrice in 13 hard court appearances. On the other hand, Thompson made it to the quarter-finals of Busan after claiming silverware success in Gwangju before turning his attention towards grass court events leading up to Wimbledon. Based on his greater activity and recent success, we are backing Thompson to triumph.
