Struff Coming off Munich Final

Struff has just finished playing in Munich, where he reached his first ever senior ATP career final, in 12 years as a professional ,eventually losing to Nikoloz Basilashvili in straight sets.

It was the second time he had lost to the Georgian on clay this year – he was also defeated by him in the third round in Sardinia, with a first round defeat to Grigor Dimitrov in Monte Carlo sandwiched between them.

That was a welcome return to form for the German after an indifferent spell which followed his first-round defeat in the Australian Open  to local man Christopher O’Connell.

He has good memories of Madrid, having reached the quarter-finals here in 2018, even though clay does not suit his natural game. Struff is known for his strong serve and ability to volley.

Popyrin Won Maiden Career Title in Singapore

Popyrin won his first ATP senior career title in Singapore in February, defeating Alexander Bublik in the final. He then reached the second round in Dubai and the third in Miami, his best ever showing in a Masters’ event.

The Aussie then switched to clay and came through the qualifying competition to reach the second round in Monte Carlo.

That was the same stage Popyrin reached in Belgrade, but he suffered a first round defeat in Munich a week ago, beaten by compatriot John Millman in three sets.

The Australian has made the main draw in Madrid for the first time, after winning two matches in qualifying, first battling past the Argentine clay court specialist Federico Coria in three sets, and then achieving a more comfortable victory over the world ranked 589, Arthur Cazaux, of France.

Struff v Popyrin Prediction and Tip

Struff will start the favourite for this match, but it may depend on how much his exploits in Munich have taken out of him. If he is able to shake off the disappointment of losing his first ever final, then he should have too much for the Australian.
