Jannik Sinner v Ugo Humbert Head to Head
This will be the second meeting between both players. Their only meeting was at the 2019 Next Gen ATP finals, where Humbert won the encounter.
Sinner Looking For Deep Run Ahead of French Open
19-year-old Italian Jannik Sinner sprung onto the scene in 2019 and has gone from strength to strength in remarkable fashion since. Winning the 2019 Next Gen ATP finals in Milan, Sinner ended a positive but short 2020 with a quarter-final loss to Rafa Nadal at the French Open and a first ATP title at the Sofia Open 250.
The 2021 season has seen some highs and lows for Sinner. He started well with a title win at the Melbourne ATP 250 but then had a tough five set los in the Aussie Open first round to Denis Shapovalov. He ended the first quarter strong with a quarter-final showing at the Dubai ATP 500 losing out to Aslan Karatsev and runner-up at the Miami Masters to Hubert Hurkacz.
Expecting to hit good form on the slower clay venues, it has been a mixed bag for the Italian. While he had a relatively early loss at Monte Carlo against world number one Novak Djokovic, he made the final four at the Barcelona ATP 500 defeating Roberto Bautista Agut and Andrey Rublev.
A disappointing loss to Aussie Alexei Popyrin in Madrid this week will have set back his clay missions a little, but he will hoping to hit good form in Rome ahead of the second major of the year in Paris at the end of the month.
Humbert In Midst of Low Patch
Similar to Sinner, Frenchman Ugo Humbert has been impressive during his short professional career on the ATP circuit. The shorter pandemic-hit 2020 was a good season for Humbert with titles at the ATP 250 in Auckland early in the season and at the European Open in Antwerp later in the year.
The early indoor and hard court season this year was a mixed bag for Humbert, making the quarter-finals at Montpellier and semis at Marseille, but less impressive outings elsewhere.
He has yet to hit good form on the slower clay swing with early losses at both Monte Carlo and Madrid, despite a better run in Estoril where he lost in the final eight to fellow Next Gen Alejando Davidovich Fokina.
Humbert will also be hoping for a good run at Rome to get his confidence going ahead of his home slam.
Sinner v Humbert Prediction and Tip
With two rising players who have impressed in their short tenure on the tour, this makes for a good contest. Both players will be striving for more consistency and in recent times, Sinner has been the better and more consistent player.
An exciting opening round ahead, with the Italian expected to prevail in a decider.
