THE PREDICTION

Frenchman Ugo Humbert is looking to rediscover the form that saw him pick up the ASB Classic title – his first on the ATP Tour – at the beginning of the season and he gave a good account of himself in the first round here with a 6-3, 7-6 win over Kevin Anderson. He will not quite know what to expect from world number 13 Fabio Fognini though, who has had a poor season by his standards and his first match post-lockdown saw him crash out as the number one seed to world number 303 Marc-Andrea Huesler at the Austrian Open Kitzbuhel last week. The Italian firebrand has previously reached the quarters in Rome and should be winning this if he brings his A-game, but last week’s showing in Austria was so abject that it gives us little confidence in him. Humbert is tipped for the win here but this is perhaps a match best avoided in the betting markets due to Fognini’s unpredictability.
