Fucsovics vs De Minaur – Match Predictions

De Minaur has certainly been hitting fine form recently. The Aussie captured his first title of the season in Mexico just last week. And this has earned him the rightful place of being the 16th seed for Indian Wells 2023. In contrast, Marton Fucsovics hasn’t had the greatest of seasons, despite starting the year well at the Australian Open. As for their respective rankings, De Minaur is 18 in the world while Fucsovics is 84 in the world right now.

So which way will this match swing? Check out two key predictions for this game below.

De Minaur -4.5 Game Handicap

Given the way that De Minaur has been playing recently, I’ve got to go for a -4.5 game handicap. This means that he has to win the match with clear distance between him and Fucsovics in the scoreline – 5 games or more, to be exact. However, I certainly think he can get this done since he’s a solid player who doesn’t miss many balls.

De Minaur 2-0 Set Score

Since I’ve gone for a -4.5 handicap in favour of De Minaur, it makes sense to double down on this market. Therefore, I’m also shooting for De Minaur to win the match in straight sets. This is exactly what happened in their most recent meeting, and due to the form of the Aussie, I feel it can happen again. 

Fucsovics vs De Minaur Preview

Now that you’ve seen my tennis predictions today for this game, let’s move on to a quick preview for both guys.

Marton Fucsovics Preview

Although Fucsovics is down at 84 in the world, he can produce some big tennis when he gets going. This was confirmed by his third-round appearance at the 2023 Australian Open, where he then lost to Jannik Sinner in five sets. With that said, he turned things around in his opening round against J.J. Wolf in impressive fashion – taking the win in three sets.

Alex De Minaur Preview

De Minaur is one of those guys that always plays to a decent level. Because of his style, he’s always going to make the other guy hit lots of balls. Subsequently, he makes you beat him due to his consistency and speed around the court. And off the back of the title win in Mexico, he has to be full of confidence right now.

Fucsovics vs De Minaur Head to Head

These two have only shared the match court twice in the past. These games were both played on hard courts, whereas the most recent one was played on outdoor hard. De Minaur won both of these games, giving him a 2-0 head-to-head lead over Fucsovics.
