Andrey Rublev v Corentin Moutet Head to Head
This will be the first ever meeting between the two players on tour.
Rublev Continuing Fine Form of Late 2019
Young Russian Andrey Rublev burst onto the scene in 2017, qualifying for the US Open quarter-finals as well as being a finalist at the inaugural ATP Next Gen Finals in Milan, exhibiting promise and talent among the next generation of tennis stars.
What followed was an unfortunate 2018 and first half of 2019 that was marred by injuries, poor form and disappointing losses.
The Russian turned it around in the second half of 2019, winning the Kremlin Cup, being a finalist at the Hamburg Open ATP 500, and defeating the likes of Stanislas Wawrinka, Dominic Theim, Roger Federer, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Nick Kyrgios and others during the latter part of the season on different hard court tournaments including the US Open and the ATP Masters 1000 in Cincinatti.
Rublev ended the year ranked just outside the top 20 in the world and has continued his strong form into the first week of 2020.
After a first week bye here in Doha, he has been in imperious form defeating Mikhail Kukushkin, Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Miomir Kecmanovic with immense ease and conviction.
The young Russian will be looking to continue his form into the title round and start the year on a perfect note with more silverware.
Can Moutet Continue His Dream Week?
20-year-old Next Gen Frenchman Corentin Moutet was little known on the tour before this week. However, it has been a dream week for the Frenchman.
Moutet got his week started by beating American Tenny Sandrgren in the opener here in Doha. He has since gone from strength to strength upsetting big-serving Canadian veteran Milos Raonic, Spaniard Fernando Verdasco and Swiss Stanislas Wawrinka.
While all his victories are noteworthy, defeating the experienced Wawrinka in the semi-finals after being down a set will stand out most for young Moutet.
With a game that covers the court well, and a strong forehand, the young Frenchman has displayed promise in talent and maturity in his temperament.
While he knows he starts as the underdog in the title round against Rublev, the wins in the previous rounds will give him every reason to believe he can pull off another victory again.
Andrey Rublev v Corentin Moutet Predictions & Tips
An exciting clash between two young and rising players is on the cards in the Doha finals. While Rublev may seem the more experienced, he is less than three years older than Moutet, although he has done remarkably well in his three years on the tour.
Both players have been in good form and this promises to be a clash between the running Rublev forehand and the wideout Moutet forehand.
Although Moutet will come in with plenty of self-belief after the week he has had, Rublev will be watchful and not underestimate his opponent, something that some of the more seasoned veterans may have done earlier this week.
Rublev will be well-prepared and is hungry for a title to start the season; expect the Russian to win in two tight sets.
