3-0 to Alejandro Davidovich Fokina @ 3/2 (2.50)

Giron has lost his last three matches leading up to the US Open first-round showdown against Davidovich Fokina. The Spaniard has momentum on his side after reaching the semi-finals of the Toronto Open and will have similar agendas on his mind at Flushing Meadows to go as deep in the two-week affair as possible.

The 2023 season has unfolded as a testament to Marcos Giron’s resilience and ambition on the main tour. Despite recent setbacks in the form of a three-match losing streak, his journey has been marked by moments of promise.

Alejandro Davidovich Fokina preview

Alejandro Davidovich Fokina’s journey through the 2023 season encapsulates both triumph and adversity. The Spaniard displayed remarkable resilience by rebounding from the heartache of a Wimbledon loss to reach the semifinals at the Toronto Masters. Victories over notable names like Alexander Zverev and Casper Ruud underscored his prowess. However, a retirement in a Cincinnati Masters match against Novak Djokovic served as a recent setback. As he steps onto the US Open courts, Davidovich Fokina seeks to channel his recovery and showcase his potential in the season’s final Grand Slam.
