Andrey Rublev v John Millman Head to Head
The pair have only met once so far in their careers. The Australian won on the clay courts of the Vicenza Challenger back in 2015.
Rublev Looking to Finish an Impressive Comeback Year Strongly
After missing a lot of 2018 due to a back injury, the Russian has had a solid 2019 so far. He has reached two finals and four quarter-finals, so now this year. His best performance this year was at Cincinnati, where he took our Roger Federer & Stan Wawrinka before losing to Daniil Medvedev in the last eight.
One thing missing for the Russian so far this season has been a title. Despite some consistent performances this year, he has not been able to add to his solitary title from Umag in 2017.
Last year he perished in the opening round here, and after a comfortable straight-sets victory in the first round, this year he will potentially face fifth seed Alexander Zverev in the round of 16.
Millman: Journeyman Aussie Will go in as the Underdog
For someone who has never won a title at ATP level, John Millman was as high as world number 33 earlier this year. He came close to breaking his duck last week at Tokyo, where he started from the qualifying stage and ended up going all the way to the finals to fall short against world number one Serbian Novak Djokovic.
Despite limited success at the ATP level, Millman is a consistent winner at the Challenger level. He won his 19th career challenger title in Taiwan last month. His most notbale performance in the career came in the US Open last year where he reached the last eight before losing to Djokovic.
The 30-year-old Australian went out from the first qualifying round in Shanghai last year, and regardless of what happens this week, he is likely to break into the top 50 again when the next rankings come out.
Andrey Rublev v John Millman Predictions & Tips
Millman does like hard courts and has a strong serve on him. But Rublev also prefers the faster courts, and his overall better game should be enough to see him progress in the next round.
