Radu Albot v Federico Delbonis Head to Head
The pair have met once before, on the clay courts of Lyon in 2018, with Albot winning in three sets.
Albot’s Poor Grand Slam Record
Albot has a generally poor record in Grand Slams – his third round appearance in Australia earlier this year was the best he has managed in his career.
He has made it to the second round in Paris for the last three years, however.
Clay is not his preferred surface – his one senior ATP title win came on the hard courts of Delray Beach two years ago, and most of his successes on the junior tours were also on that surface, although there were some clay court tournament wins along the way.
His best results in 2021 came in the first months of the year though. After that run in Melbourne, he travelled to Singapore, where he got to the semi-finals before losing to Alexander Bublik.
However. since then, Albot was knocked out in the first round in Dubai and Miami, and has only played two clay court matches, losing them both.
Albot failed to qualify for Madrid and was beaten in the first round in Serbia earlier this week by the Brazilian Thiago Monteiro, losing in straight sets.
Delbonis Looking to Make His Mark in Paris
Given that he is known as a clay court specialist, Delbonis must wonder why he has such a poor record at Roland Garros – in his eight previous visits here, he has never been beyond the second round.
That is in contrast to his broader record on clay, where he has been in four senior finals, winning two of them, and has a long history of final and tournament wins on the junior circuits to his name.
He will be hoping he can finally make his mark on this tournament, after what has largely been a successful build-up.
Having reached the semi-finals in Santiago, he could only make it to the second round in Andalucía, and failed to qualify for Monte Carlo.
Delbonis, however, made it to the third round of the first version of the Serbia Open, and came through the qualifying competition to make the same stage in Madrid,
In Rome he did even better – again made to qualify, he beat both David Goffin and Felix Auger-Aliassime before he was beaten by the big serving Reilly Opelka.
Returning to Serbia last week, he made the semi-finals but suffered a surprise defeat to the Slovak qualifier Alex Molcan on Friday.
Albot v Delbonis Prediction and Tip
Delbonis will start as the clear favourite. He is the clay court specialist of the pair, and has played many more matches on the surface and been in much the better form on it this year.
