Hubert Hurkacz v Antoine Hoang Head to Head
The pair have never played each other before and this will be their first meeting.
Hurkacz Hoping For Smooth Opener
Poland’s Next Gen rising star Hubert Hurkacz had a breakthrough season in 2019, qualifying for the third round at Wimbledon, moving into the top 50 of the ATP rankings and winning his first ATP title on the hard courts of Winston Salem.
2020 got off to a good start for Hurkacz. Although Poland did not go past the group stages at the ATP Cup, the young Hurkacz had a good outing winning all his singles matches against Dominic Thiem, Diego Schwartzman and Borna Coric respectively.
He followed the ATP Cup with a semi-final showing at the ASB Classic in Auckland, but lost early at the Australian Open to Aussie John Milman. Hurkacz was drawn against Stefanos Tsitsipas in the Rotterdam opener and after being up a set and a break, he was unable to drive home the early advantage.
Hurkacz is currently ranked at a career high number 28, and will look to make an impact here in Marseille and gain in confidence ahead of the Sunshine Masters next month in the US
Wild Card Hoang Looking To Provide Challenge
Twenty-four year old Frenchman Antoine Hoang has been a regular feature on the ATP Challengers & ITF Futures tours, but little known on the ATP tour.
He is ranked just within the top 100 at the moment and made the third round of the French Open last year.
Having been fairly successful on the Challenger and Futures tours, Hoang is looking to gain more experience and confidence on the main tour, as well as seek more opportunities to play on the tour.
The young Frenchman will be looking to come in with minimal expectations, but hope to provide a challenge at a minimum, to Hurkacz.
