Ugo Humbert vs Tommy Paul– match predictions

Tommy Paul is the last player who defeated world No. 1 Carlos Alcaraz, and has a good chance to move forward in Cincinnati in the match against the world No. 33, Ugo Humbert.

Tommy Paul to win

Paul is coming off a solid match in which he defeated Miomir Kecmanovic for the first time in his career and is a major favorite in this match. Humbert also played well against the teenager Arthur Fils in the opener but the Frenchman is not on the level Paul is. The American moves great on the court and has a much more versatile game that Humbert. This should not be a tough task for Paul, who will most likely win this in straight sets.

Under 22.5 games

It’s been more than five years since the last match between these two players. Paul is in the Top 15 for a reason and will prove that today against Ugo Humbert who will not stand a chance in this match. Humbert has a solid serve but often struggles with consistency and that will keep this match under 22.5 games.
