Grigor Dimitrov v Pablo Cuevas Head to Head
Dimitrov leads 3-1 head-to-head, having won at the Paris Masters in 2014, in Sydney in 2016 and at the Australian Open in 2019.
However, their only meeting on clay in Istanbul in 2015 was won by Cuevas.
Dimitrov Ends Three-Match Losing Streak
Fourth seed Grigor Dimitrov ended a three-match losing streak as he eased past Belarus’ Ilya Ivashka in the Round of 16 at the Geneva Open on Wednesday.
The Bulgarian, who received a first-round bye, needed just an hour and 32 minutes to dispatch Ivashka 6-4, 6-4.
Ranked 20th in the world, Dimitrov came into the tournament on the back of three defeats on the trot. Following his Round-of-16 defeat to Rafael Nadal at the Monte Carlo Masters, Dimitrov made first-round exits from Madrid and Rome Masters, falling to Lloyd Harris and Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, respectively.
An eight-time winner on the tour, Dimitrov began the year with three successive quarterfinal appearances at the Murray River Open, Australian Open and the Mexican Open. However, he is yet to go past the last eight this year.
The former World No. 3, who improved to 11-7 after Wednesday’s win, hasn’t won a title since winning the ATP Finals tournament in 2017.
Cuevas Stops Cazaux From Advancing
Facing Dimitrov in the quarterfinal will be 35-year-old Pablo Cuevas, who knocked out French wildcard Arthur Cazaux in the second round on Thursday.
The match, which was suspended on Wednesday due to bad weather, ended on Thursday with the Uruguayan winning 6-2, 6-4.
Cuevas didn’t face a single break point in the match, while he converted 3 of 6 to oust the 18-year-old, who had made heads turn on his tour debut on Monday, when he defeated the eighth seed Adrian Mannarino.
Cuevas had entered the main draw in Geneva after beating Switzerland’s Jakub Paul and Italy’s Lorenzo Giustino in the two qualifying rounds.
A clay-court specialist, Cuevas, who has won all six of his career titles on the surface, had beaten the United States’ Reilly Opelka 7-6 (7-5), 6-2 in the first round on Tuesday.
Thursday’s win improved the Uruguayan to 6-3 this year and it will be his first quarterfinal appearance in 2021 after he lost in the Round of 16 in Melbourne-1 and Munich.
Grigor Dimitrov v Pablo Cuevas Prediction and Tip
Cuevas has looked in good touch in the tournament and given Dimitrov’s dodgy form, he would fancy his chances as well. Expect a close contest with a third set deciding the winner.
