Alejandro Davidovich Fokina v Federico Delbonis Head to Head
This will be the first meeting between the 21-year-old Spaniard and the 30-year-old Argentinian.
Davidovich Fokina Survives Another Five-Setter
Spain’s Alejandro Davidovich Fokina won a second five-setter in a row to move into the fourth round of a major for the second time in his career.
The promising 21-year-old, who reached the Round of 16 of the U.S. Open last year, won a dramatic four-hour-and-35-minute third-round contest against Norway’s Casper Ruud on Friday.
Bageled in the fourth set, the Spaniard hit back by getting the only break in the fifth before closing out the match by holding a 16-minute final game to beat the 15th seed 7-6 (7-3), 2-6, 7-6 (8-6), 0-6, 7-5.
Davidovich Fokina saved four break points in the final game, before converting the fifth match point for a remarkable victory.
The Spaniard had needed three hours and 42 minutes to win his second-round match against Botic van de Zandschulp. Davidovich Fokina had thrown away a two-set-to-love advantage in that match before winning the contest 6-4, 6-4, 5-7, 2-6, 6-4.
In the first round, Davidovich Fokina had needed just an hour and 57 minutes to beat Mikhail Kukushkin 6-4, 6-4, 6-3.
The Spanish right-hander came to Paris with a 15-10 record this year, which included a run to his maiden Masters quarterfinal in Monte Carlo. He also reached the Round of 16 in Rome for the first time.
In other tournaments this year, Davidovich Fokina reached the semifinals in Estoril and the quarterfinals in Montpellier.
Delbonis Takes Out Fognini
Argentina’s Federico Delbonis entered the fourth round of a Grand Slam for the first time in his career as he knocked out 27th seed Fabio Fognini in the third round of the French Open on Friday.
In a dominating performance, the Argentinian needed just two hours and six minutes to hand the Italian a 6-4, 6-1, 6-3 defeat. The left-hander converted 6 of 14 break points while getting broken just once despite facing five break points in the match.
It was a relatively easy outing for the 51st-ranked Delbonis, who had needed four sets to win his opening round contest against Radu Albot and five to win his second round against Pablo Andujar.
In a two-hour-and-five-minute first-round contest, Delbonis had beaten the Moldovan 6-1, 2-6, 6-0, 6-1, while in the second round, the Argentine battled past the Spaniard 4-6, 6-1, 3-6, 6-3, 6-2.
A two-time winner on the tour, the 30-year-old Argentine is having a great 2021 season, having reached his first-ever Masters quarterfinal in Rome. He also reached the third round of Madrid Masters for the first time, having come through qualifiers in both the tournaments.
Delbonis also reached the semifinals in Santiago and Belgrade and the quarterfinals of the Serbia Open.
Davidovich Fokina v Delbonis Prediction and Tip
Both players have had a remarkable journey so far and will be desperate to reach a first major quarterfinal. However, Delbonis may have a slight edge as the Spaniard had to play to epics leading to the fourth round contest. Expect another thriller.
