Ready for the final day of first-round matches as per the 2024 Australian Open schedule? The order of play is finally out, and I’ve picked this exciting match to provide my Giron vs Draper predictions right now.

Our favourite Marcos Giron vs Jack Draper predictions

Two unseeded guys are about to do battle in the first round of the 2024 Australian Open. As you can see, this match involves the plucky American Marcos Giron, taking on the talented youngster Jack Draper. But how will this match play out?

Here are my tips, which you can follow in line with my most recent 2024 Australian Open predictions for the draw as a whole too.

Giron to win a set – yes @ 10/21 (1.48)

As it stands, Jack Draper is the favourite to win this match due to the form that he is in. And to be honest, I agree with the latest odds that he should be the favourite. However, Giron is a fighter, and he has scalped some big players in his career. So for me, he can certainly take a set from Draper in round one.

Over 37.5 games @ 17/20 (1.85)

If Marcos Giron does indeed take a set from Draper in this contest, then the chances that the match extends beyond 37.5 games become quite high. Of course, the tighter the other sets are (assuming Giron wins a set), the greater the probability is that more than 37.5 games will be played.

Marcos Giron vs Jack Draper odds

The chance of Draper winning this one is 76.90% as per the latest odds. As for Giron’s probability of victory, this sits at 29.40%.

Draper seeking to reach second round in Melbourne for very first time

Before this match kicks off, I encourage you to check out the previews given for each player below.

Marcos Giron preview

At the time of writing, Marcos Giron is ranked 66 in the world, hence he isn’t seeded at the 2024 Australian Open. Furthermore, he has fallen at the first hurdle in Melbourne in all four of his latest attempts – dating back to 2020. So as we can see, it doesn’t look great for Giron with respect to securing a victory, yet this doesn’t mean he cannot cause problems for Draper.

Jack Draper preview

Draper is ranked higher than Giron going into this match at 55 in the world. Additionally, he reached the finals in Adelaide last week, losing to Lehecka in a tight three-setter. During that run, Draper beat the likes of Bublik, Tommy Paul, Kecmanovic, and Baez too, so he will certainly be confident that he can take out Marcos Giron here.

Giron vs Draper head to head

Despite their close proximity in the ATP rankings, Marcos Giron and Jack Draper have never played one another in an official ATP tournament. Therefore, the slate is completely clean in the head-to-head department, which makes this one very exciting.
