John Millman v Alexei Popyrin Head to Head
At the highest level there have been two previous matches between these two players and Millman has won both. There was a third played at the Challenger circuit, on clay and Millman had got through that in three sets.
Millman 3-3 on Clay in 2021
Millman has been a part of three competitions on clay this season so far and at each of them he has won and lost one.
A first round win at the Cagliari Open was followed by a defeat to Laslo Djere, a win over Ugo Humbert in Monte Carlo then saw a following defeat at the hands of Cristian Garin before he cruised against Cristian Garin only to fall to Taro Daniel.
That last defeat at the hands of Daniel would have specially hurt given Millman was a strong favourite going into that encounter and had a solid chance of coming through after he won the first set.
However, his game fell away even as Daniel stepped up his own and completed the victory. Can Millman now shrug that loss off and try and push on into another second round?
Popyrin at Career-Best
With a third round appearance at the Miami Masters and back to back entries into second round on clay, Popyrin is maintaining the kind of consistency he would like. What he would definitely prefer is to add to his showing in Singapore earlier this year where he shocked a few opponents to complete his maiden title win.
That victory had come indoor hard court surfaces while over the years on clay, Popyrin had barely scratched the surface.
In fact over the last couple of seasons, Popyrin had won at just first round at the French Open of 2019 but since then had only had wins in qualifying rounds of competitions.
The opening round wins in Monte Carlo and Belgrade earlier this week should be a good indicator of how well he has progressed overall in his tennis. He should back himself to get past his fellow countryman.
Millman v Popyrin Prediction and Tip
Popyrin, despite being a lower-ranked player, is the favourite coming into this because of his recent form and we are backing him to come through in this one.
Tip: Popyrin to win: 4/7 (bet365)
