Our favourite Mackenzie McDonald vs Francisco Cerundolo – match predictions

Both McDonald and Cerundolo enter the competition with their distinct recent form and objectives, setting the stage for a compelling showdown.

Mackenzie McDonald to win @ 3/4 (1.75)

Cerundolo is the higher-ranked participant but comes into this meeting as an underdog. Against McDonald, he will likely come up short given his poor run of form on his less favoured hard courts. On the other hand, McDonald has impressed on the faster surface, reaching the quarter-finals of the Zhuhai Championships and getting past the first hurdle in Shanghai and Tokyo. Based on his relatively better form, we are backing the American to triumph.

Over 22.5 Games @ 19/20 (1.95)

McDonald’s win over Max Purcell saw 22 games being played. Cerundolo is a higher-ranked rival and in much better form than the Australian who has lost seven of his last eight matches. Five of McDonald’s nine matches have been three setters while over 22.5 games were seen on six occasions. As a consequence, we are anticipating over 22.5 games being played in this meeting.
