Our favourite Rinky Hijikata vs Marton Fucsovics predictions

This second-round match at the 2023 US Open should be a great contest to watch. As for the most appropriate ATP US Open 2023 predictions, there are two markets that I feel you should cover. Both are detailed below and accompanied with justifications and odds:

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

Rinky Hijikata might have gained entry into the main draw as a wildcard, but the Aussie can play some great tennis when he finds his form. Because of that, and because Fucsovics has a tendency to play a loose set here and there, I can certainly see Hijikata grabbing a set from the Hungarian in this one.

Fucsovics -5.5 games handicap @ 10/11 (1.91)

Although I believe that Hijikata is capable of grabbing a set, I can’t see him beating Marton Fucsovics in this match. In fact, Fucsovics is capable of playing at a much higher level than his lower-ranked opponent, and this was shown by his win over the 31st seed in the first round. Therefore, I feel that this handicap market could lead to a solid return.

The odds in this article were correct at the time of writing, and the odds are subject to change. We recommend checking with your bookmaker before placing a bet.

Fucsovics to surge into third round against the Aussie

Rinky Hijikata preview

Rinky Hijikata is ranked 110 in the world at the moment, which is why he was dependent on securing a wildcard for a direct main draw entry. Additionally, he is just 22 years of age, so he is relatively inexperienced at this level. Nevertheless, he did beat Kotov in four sets in his opening round, and he played decent tennis to get the job done.

Marton Fucsovics preview

In the case of Marton Fucsovics, he has been around the block at 31 years of age. Adding to that, he is currently 57 in the ATP rankings, which is much higher than Hijikata. He has also made deep draw runs at Grand Slams in the past, and he loves the quick hard courts of Flushing Meadows. Finally, as mentioned above, he started the tournament by taking out a seeded player in the form of Sebastian Korda.

As we approach this second-round contest, there are zero head-to-head records to analyze that could help us when looking at key betting markets. This means that Hijikata and Fucsovics have never played one another, so it will be intriguing to see how this match plays out.
