Alexei Popyrin v Adrian Andreev Head to Head
This will be the first meeting between the 114th-ranked Popyrin and the 419th-ranked Andreev.
Popyrin Holds Off Eubanks
Australia’s Alexei Popyrin battled past American Christopher Eubanks in the first round of the tournament on Monday.
In what turned out to be another gutsy performance by the 21-year-old, Popyrin saved 10 of 11 break points to beat the 240th-ranked qualifier 7-6 (7-5), 7-6 (7-5) in an hour and 47 minutes.
The 6’5” Aussie, who played two marathons at the Australian Open this year, served 15 aces against Eubanks to improve to 4-2 in 2021.
Beginning the season at the Murray River Open, Popyrin survived six match points in the first round against Croatia’s Borna Gojo before advancing to the next round, where he made short work of America’s Tommy Paul. He took Grigor Dimitrov to the deciding set in the Round-of-16 but failed to find a way past the Bulgarian.
At the Australian Open, Popyrin stunned Belgium’s David Goffin in a five-set first-round contest but fell to South Africa’s Lloyd Harris in another nail-biting five-setter.
The 2017 boys’ singles champion at Roland Garros, Popyrin had a 2-5 record in 2020.
Andreev Upsets Harris
Bulgarian teenager Adrian Andreev came back from a set down to upset seventh seed Lloyd Harris in the first round on Monday.
The 19-year-old wild card withstood 11 aces and saved 12 of 15 break points, while converting three of eight to score his second Tour-level win.
The two hours and 14 minutes contest saw Andreev stutter in the beginning before getting into a good rhythm to beat the South African 1-6, 6-3, 6-4.
Last month, Andreev recorded his maiden win on the Tour as he defeated Marsel Ilhan in the first round of the Antalya Open, before falling to eventual champion Alex de Minaur in the next.
Ranked 419th in the world, Andreev, who has two ITF titles, won the U.S. Open boys’ doubles title in 2018.
Popyrin v Andreev Prediction and Tip
It’s a promising start for the Bulgarian teenager, but he will find it difficult to pull off another upset and reach a maiden ATP Tour quarterfinal. Expect Popyrin to advance into the last eight.
Tip: Popyrin to win: 2/7 (bet365)
