THE PREDICTION

Two players who performed well during the clay-court season meet here and they had contrasting routes through to the round of 16. 3rd seed Rublev was a routine 6-2, 6-4 winner over Vasek Pospisil in the first round while Humbert had to battle back from a set down in his encounter with Pavel Kotov. Humbert is a solid all-round performer but he will have to play at the very top of his game to match Rublev here, who is going from strength to strength in the men’s game. The Russian is a threat to anyone right now and has as good a chance as any of winning the St. Petersburg title at the end of the week, so he can be confidently backed in this round of 16 match.
