Alex de Minaur v Daniel Elahi Galan Head to Head
De Mianur beat Galan 6-4, 6-3 in their only previous meeting at the senior level, in the Davis Cup in 2019. He also beat the Colombian at the Challenger level in 2016, winning the qualifying round in three sets.
De Minaur Looking To Start Well
Australia’s Alex de Minaur will begin his second Miami Open challenge in the Round of 64 on Saturday. The 15th seed, who received a first round bye, is 8-5 this year and has already won a title. However, he comes into the tournament on the back of two-match losing streak.
Beginning the season in Antalya, the 22-year-old Aussie defeated Malek Jaziri, Adrian Andreev, Nikoloz Basilashvilli and David Goffin to reach his eighth career final, which was cut short after his opponent Alexander Bublik retired after just two games in the match to hand the Aussie his fourth career title.
De Mianur, who has won all his titles on outdoor hard courts, lost both his matches at this year’s ATP Cup, before matching his best performance at the Australian Open, reaching the third round of the tournament for the second time in his career.
The 2020 U.S. Open quarterfinalist, who reached the third round of his home slam in 2019, defeated America’s Tenny Sandgren and Uruguay’s Pablo Cuevas in the first two rounds this year, before going down to Fabio Fognini in the Round of 32.
The World No. 23 next featured in Rotterdam, beating compatriot John Millman in the first round but falling to Kei Nishikori in the Round of 16. The defeat was followed by a Round-of-32 exit from Dubai, where he was beaten by Jeremy Chardy after having received a bye in the first round.
Known as the “speed demon,” de Minaur qualified for the main draw in Miami in 2018, but was dumped out of the first round by Japan’s Yoshihito Nishioka.
Galan Sends Seyboth Wild Packing
Facing de Minaur in the Round of 64 will be Colombia’s Daniel Elahi Galan, who defeated Brazilian qualifier Thiago Seyboth Wild in the first round on Thursday.
The 24-year-old Colombian needed an hour and 36 minutes to beat the 21-year-old 6-3, 6-4. Winning 55 percent of the total points in the match, Galan saved four of five break points while converting three of four to improve to 5-4 in 2021.
Beginning the season at Delray Beach, Galan defeated Slovakia’s Andrej Martin in the first round before falling to eventual champion Hubert Hurkacz in the Round of 16.
Ranked 113th in the world, Galan made first round exits in Cordoba and Acapulco, but was extremely impressive at the Chile Open earlier this month, where he reached a second ATP semifinal but failed to make it to a maiden final.
Galan, who reached the final four in Houston in 2019, defeated Germany’s Daniel Altmaier, Spain’s Pablo Andujar and Roberto Carballes Baena en route to the semifinal in Santiago before falling to the top seed Christian Garin in straight sets. The latter went on to win the title.
de Minaur v Galan Prediction and Tip
Galan doesn’t have a great record outside clay, while de Minaur thrives on hard courts. Expect the Aussie to win this contest in straight sets.
Tip: De Minaur to win in straight sets: 2/5 (bet365)
