Our favourite Marcos Giron vs Arthur Rinderknech predictions
Giron has been the better one in the previous matches against Rinderknech, but it’s been a while since their last meeting. Rinderknech has improved and has a legit chance in this match.
Marcos Giron to win @ 3/5 (1.60)
Giron played very confidently in the opening round against Bublik, and he is the favourite in the second round as well. Rinderknech may be a slightly better overall player, but given the surface, Giron is very dangerous. He often plays the serve and volley game and that is something that Rinderknech will have a problem with. The Frenchman will not find a solution for Giron’s first serve and the American will move on to the next round.
First set over 10.5 games @ 7/4 (2.75)
Giron is the type of player that focuses on his serve games and he is used to playing tie-breaks. Rinderknech can also serve well, and this match will start with a long set. Both of them played a tie break in the opening set of their previous matches, and this will probably be the case this time as well.
