Ugo Humbert vs Alex de Minaur – Match Predictions

Both players are entering their prime and know each other very well since this will be their fifth match against each other. De Minaur is the favorite given the form, and the recent schedule.

Alex de Minaur -3.5

De Minaur is in great form and he loves to play in Atlanta since he won the tournament last year. Umbert had a difficult week in Newport and barely made it this far in Atlanta. Everything goes in the favor of the Australian and De Minaur will move on to the semifinals.

Under 22.5 games

The last three matches between these two players have gone to three sets and it is logical to go with the same choice this time as well. However, De Minaur is in much better shape and will have no problems defeating Humbert in straight sets and under 22.5 games in total.
