On September 25, the quarterfinals of the tournament in Hamburg will be held, so we could not miss the confrontation between Hugo Humbert and Kasper Ruud and prepared a forecast. How will the meeting end?
The Frenchman adapted to clay paving at the Masters in Rome, where he had three fights, but most importantly, he got playing practice, which, in principle, was aimed at.
Humbert decided not to take a break before the start of Roland Garros, but tried his luck at the competition in Hamburg and, as we can see, did not lose. In the first match, the representative of France dealt with Daniil Medvedev (6-4, 6-3), and in the previous match he replaced Jiri Vesely (6-4, 6-2).
Hugo has noticeably improved in Germany, while stabilizing the game, so he will qualify for a ticket to the semifinals, although the opponent is really serious.
The Norwegian tennis player shot at the Masters in Rome, where only Novak Djokovic managed to stop him in the semifinals of the tournament (5-7, 3-6), and the 21-year-old Oslo native acted very confidently.
Ruud saved his strength in the first round, because Benoit Peer was injured and could not continue the fight. In the next fight, the representative of Norway went to Fabio Fognini, who tried to impose his tennis, but the Italian failed (6-3, 6-3).
Kasper is motivated as never before, since there is an opportunity not only to catch on to the semifinals, but also to go further, especially the level of rivals allows, although first you need to show your class in a duel against the Frenchman.
The rivals had one face-to-face meeting on hard, then Hugo Humbert celebrated the victory.
In the last five games on clay, Kasper Ruud has won four wins.
None of the opponents have lost a single set during the tournament in Hamburg.
13.01.20 Hugo Humbert Casper Ruud 2: 1
Hugo Humbert’s game is built around his first serve, after which he abruptly goes to the net and tries to leave a minimum chance for the opponent, but it is worth considering the fact that the Norwegian is clearly faster.
Kasper Ruud showed decent tennis not only in Rome, but also at the tournament in Hamburg, and he is unlikely to stop after two victories. The Oslo native acts well on the backcourt, sees the court perfectly and has earned the status of a favorite, on which we propose to bet.
Our prediction is Kasper Ruud’s victory for the odds of 1.53 in the 1xBet
