Ugo Humbert v Yannick Hanfmann Head to Head
Humbert and Hanfmann have never faced off before this in a competitive match.
Humbert Stalls Losing Streak
It turned out to be an easy win for Humbert in the end but at best, he would have felt relief.
Because the Frenchman had come into this tournament in Stuttgart on the back of a five-match losing streak and having lost six of his seven matches on clay. Having also played just one season of grass before this, things did not exactly look very rosy for him coming into this competition.
Humbert, however, came through without any test, defeating Marton Fucsovics in just over an hour and dropping just four games.
The first set was slightly more evenly fought with Humbert getting the early break but dropping serve soon after. He broke back the very next game, the sixth of the set and from there on it was one-way traffic.
The Frenchman will now face a player whose career-best ranking has been 92nd.
Hanfmann Stuns Chardy in Opener
Not that Jeremy Chardy had much of form going his way coming into the grass swing but he was still an overwhelming favourite to make it through here. Instead it was Hanfmann who not just won his opener but did so in straight sets.
The German registered a 6-4, 6-4 win in an hour and 11 minutes, braving 12 aces from his opponent’s racquet by winning 89% of his own first serve points.
More vitally, Hanfmann did not face a single break-point in the entire match, while breaking his opponent four times to carve out his win.
Hanfmann himself had come into the tournament with just five main draw wins all season and having rarely played on grass, let alone win too much. In other words, he has come through to round two as a rank outsider.
Now for him to challenge a player who has himself played just one full season on grass.
Humbert v Hanfmann Prediction and Tip
Like in the first round, Hanfmann is a second favourite by some distance with Humbert starting out at 2/5 to win. Backing Hanfmann to grab a set at least.
