Francisco Cerundolo vs. Andrey Rublev Pick – ATP Hamburg European Open July 21, 2022

The ATP Tour is in Switzerland and Germany this week. They aren’t that far away, with the two countries sharing a border. The talent is spread out between Germany and Switzerland. Matteo Berrettini and Casper Ruud are at the Swiss Open for a decent lineup in Gstaad.

Carlos Alcaraz and Andrey Rublev in Hamburg for the Hamburg European Open to keep some talent in Germany. Both are still alive, with both players winning their Round of 32 matches.

The US Open begins on August 29 in New York. It’s the final grand slam of the year. There is likely to be a big absence at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.

Novak Djokovic is expected to be illegible to play in the tournament. He needs the Covid-19 vaccine to play, which isn’t happening. In other words, Djokovic will have to stay home. There was controversy at the Australian Open to open the season and he didn’t play.

Djokovic lost at the French Open, but defended his Wimbledon title recently.

He would have entered New York as the betting favorite, so the rest of the field likely isn’t feeling too bad about Djokovic’s absence. Is Andrey Rublev interested in pulling the upset at the US Open?

Francisco Cerundolo is coming off the first ATP title of his career at the Swedish Open. Following an impressive 6-3, 6-2 win over seeded Pablo Carreno-Busta, Cerundolo defeated Sebastian Baez in straight sets.

Rublev is the No. 2 player in the Hamburg European Open. Only Alcaraz is seeded higher than Rublev in Hamburg. Head below for our best Cerundolo vs. Rublev prediction on July 21, 2022.

Cerundolo vs. Rublev Prediction:

Francisco Cerundolo was in fantastic form and some of the best tennis we’ve seen from him in the Swedish Open. He beat No. 1 seed Casper Ruud, 6-4, 3-6, 7-5, and then two matches later beat a talented No. 5 seed Pablo Carreno-Busta, 6-3, 6-2.

The win at the Swedish Open was the first ATP title for the 23-year-old.

He had an early exit at Eastbourne, with a 6-4, 7-6, 6-4 loss to Tommy Paul. Cerundolo had a tough opener at Wimbledon against Rafael Nadal. The hobbled and injured Nadal beat Cerundolo in four sets.

Cerundolo had been playing decent, but no one anticipated what was coming at the Swedish Open. The best players know how to avoid letdowns. However, does he have anything left in the tank for Rublev?

Cerundolo needed three sets to bypass Daniel Altmaier in the opener in Germany. He pulled away after a sloppy first set, 2-6, 6-4, 6-2.

Cerundolo had just one ace, though still managed to get the win.

Altmaier is the No. 56 ranked player in the world, while Rublev is No. 8 going into Thursday. Rublev is coming off a textbook 6-3, 6-4 win over Ricardas Berankis in the Round of 32.

Rublev serviced Berankis out of the match, with an impressive 12 aces to just 2 for his opponent. He is going for his 12th ATP title in this tournament.

Rublev has been in good form on the clay recently. He doesn’t care much for the grass, but has been solid on a clay surface with a record of 14-5 in his previous 15 matches. With a dangerous service game, he should have the advantage over Cerundolo.

Any small regression in form for Cerundolo should put him in a tough spot. I suspect that Cerundolo will lose some steam in this one. He’s running well, though keeping up with Rublev’s serve should be difficult. I like Rublev by four games to win and cover.
