Our favourite Max Purcell vs Jordan Thompson predictions

This is the ideal place to find the best tennis predictions and a complete analysis of the Purcell vs Thompson match.

Thompson to win @ 3/4 (1.75)

Thompson has a wonderful record of 37 wins, but as incredible as it may appear, Purcell trumps him with an astonishing 50 wins. It’s worth noting that 44 of Thompson’s 50 wins came on hardcourt, while more than half of his 22 losses came on the same surface. I believe Max will be the one to move on to the next round.

Under 22.5 games @ 19/20 (1.95)

It’s no accident that the first time you all had to play each other in a Grand Slam when you had to win three sets to win, the streak of games ending in two sets was broken. The length of time that these grounds last allows the player who is below the scoreboard to react. I believe the match will be over in less than 22.5 games now that they are back to playing best of three sets.

Max Purcell 

The 25-year-old had a very excellent month of August, reaching the quarter-finals in Cincinnati and subsequently in Winston-Salem. This triumph could not be carried over to his performance at the US Open, as he was defeated by another Australian, Christopher O’Connell. Purcell was equally unlucky in Davis Cup, losing his lone match to Frenchman Adrian Mannarino.

Jordan Thompson

Jordan Thompson had his greatest match in Washington, as he overcame John Isner before facing Carlos Alcaraz in the quarterfinals. The Australian player was able to steal a set off the former world number one but was unable to defeat him. Following that, Jordan had a brief stint in New York as he retired due to injury in the first round of the US Open, as he was playing the second set against Botic Van de Zandschulp, the physical discomfort prevented Jordan from continuing.

Purcell vs Thompson Head to Head

The two players have met five times so far. In the first four head-to-head meetings, the two have split a pair of victories, all of which have ended in straight sets. They met for the first time in a Grand Slam in May, with Max Purcell taking the victory in four sets.

30/05/23 Purcell beat Purcell 7-5 1-6 6-4 6-4 (Roland Garros, clay)

07/05/23 Thompson beat Purcell 6-36-2 (Gwangju, hardcourt)
