Tommy Paul v Jiri Vesely Head to Head
The only previous meeting between these two players came at the 2019 Wimbledon where in the qualifies, Vesely defeated Paul in straight sets.
Paul Overcomes Travaglia
In a match lasting an hour and 25 minutes, Paul demolished Stefano Travaglia in his opening round match here. This gave him just his fourth win on clay in main draws of tournament this season, spread across a whopping six tournaments.
What was excellent about Paul’s performance was his serving with the American not facing a single break-point in the entire match.
On the other hand, the two opportunities he got – in the 11th game of the first set and seventh of the second, Paul converted to gain decisive breaks. In the end, a 7-5, 6-4 showing was a job well-done by Paul against someone who has made his career winning on clay and should give him a solid boost of confidence.
With Paul having not won back to back matches since the Rotterdam Open in first week of March this year, this would also be a good chance for him to turn things around.
Vesely Pulls Away from Johnson
When Vesely reached the quarterfinal of the Murray River Open in the second tournament he played earlier this year, it looked like the Czech player was looking to get back to his career-best ranking of 35th in the world.
Since then, however, his performances have fizzled out and Vesely had won just one of the seven matches he had played in the lead-up to this match.
Defeats in four back to back matches on the ATP tour had led him to feature in a Challenger in Portugal but that campaign also ended with Vesely falling in the second round there.
Now, a 7-6 (7), 6-2 win over Steve Johnson in the first round was on expected lines but the bigger question is if he can push on and trouble a player starting out at 1/3 odds to win this. Could get difficult for the two-time ATP tournament winner.
Paul v Vesely Prediction and Tip
While Paul is an obvious favourite, there is every possibility of a Vesely fight given the American himself has struggled on clay.
