Struggling Humbert Aiming for Maiden Roland-Garros Win

For a player who had won two ATP titles last season, Humbert’s return to tennis this year has been anything but brilliant.

That he hasn’t quite fallen off the ranking charts despite winning just seven of the 18 matches he’s played this season is down to the change in the ranking system last year but even then, Humbert’s confidence wouldn’t be where it should have been after last season’s showing.

What makes it worse coming into this year’s French Open, a tournament where he has never won a match, is his record on clay in 2021. Humbert has played in five clay competitions, won just one match and lost all of the five.

Two of those losses have come against John Millman and Yoshihito Nishioka, against whom he had started off as a favourite.

Which is why, despite up against a player ranked 92nd in the world, Humbert might not consider himself a favourite despite what the odds say.

Berankis Himself in Some Trouble

As compared to Humbert, Berankis hasn’t been able to play in a lot of tournaments this year and since making it to the third round at the very first he played in 2021 – in Melbourne – the Frenchman has barely won too many.

Over the 10 main draw matches since that third round loss at the Murray River Open, Berankis has won only four.

Once ranked 50th in the world – the best for any Lithuanian in tennis – Berankis’ successes have typically come on hard court surfaces. Both his ATP tournament finals, for instance, came on that surface, and even at the Challenger level he has made the final of only two clay court competitions of the 22 finals he has appeared in.

Against a player who is struggling to convert his matches into wins, Berankis might start off on an even keel though despite his own issues on clay.

Humbert v Berankis Prediction and Tip

While Humbert is a favourite, we think Berankis will have a chance to put up a solid fight and there might be some value in his 11/5 for a win here.
