Ugo Humbert vs Adrian Mannarino – Match Predictions
Both players enjoy playing on grass and have a unique opportunity to play for the title in a tournament of this level. Mannarino has a great week and his confidence is sky-high but that wasn’t the case when he faced Humbert the last time.
Ugo Humbert to win
Ugo Humbert is having an excellent week in Newport and he was able to make at least three breaks in both of the previous matches despite the surface is making that pretty difficult. Mannarino also plays well but we had a chance to see these two play recently in Paris. Humbert was so dominant that Mannarino had no chance od winning even a set. This will not be that easy for Humbert, but he will definitely find his way to the final.
First set over 9.5 games
Both Humbert and Mannarino have good serves and play short points on tis surface. They are both aware that they have a unique opportunity to play in a final and this will be a tough battle that will start with both of them holding to their serve early in the macth. That will eventually lead to a first set that will go over 9.5 games in total.
