Hubert Hurkacz to Win

As the defending champion at Halle, Hurkacz will enter his match against Griekspoor, who claimed his second ATP title at Hertogenbosch. The Polish ace has proven his ability to rise to the occasion and deliver when it matters most. A testament to his resilience was seen in his recent duel with his Croatian opponent at the French Open. Despite being down 2-1 in sets, Hurkacz fought back with unwavering spirit to secure a remarkable 2-3 victory. Drawing inspiration from this hard-fought triumph and harnessing his grass-court expertise, the 17 ranked star should be able to navigate his way to another victory in Halle.

Under 26.5 Games

In their recent duel, they engaged in a five-set thriller at the French Open, highlighting their ability to push each other to the limits. Moreover, both players have shown a propensity for tight matches recently. Hurkacz’s previous match against Christopher Eubanks witnessed a set decided by a tiebreaker, and their clash at Roland Garros produced two tiebreakers as well.
