Arthur Rinderknech v Yannick Hanfmann Head to Head
No previous matches have been played between these two qualifiers.
Hanfmann Gets Lucky after Basilashvili Bashing
Hanfmann was a tad unfortunate in losing out of a main draw berth here in Halle in that he was drawn to face a top 30 player in the second round of qualifying. The German went down to Nikoloz Basilashvili in straight sets, but the unfortunate withdrawal of Stefanos Tsitsipas from the tournament allows him a second shot at it.
Unfortunately for Hanfmann, it’s not been the best of seasons for him anyway.
After coming into 2021 with the kind he had last year, Hanfmann has won just seven main draw matches this year spread across 13 tournaments.
This includes a couple of rounds at Cagliari on clay but the big question now is whether he can make a better fist of things on grass. He did win his opener against Jeremy Chardy at Stuttgart Open last week before falling to Ugo Humbert in the second.
He now faces a fellow qualifier in the opener and will fancy a chance.
Rinderknech Continues to Impress in 2021
He is 25 years old but has only just recently begun to show the kind of form he would like. Which is also why Rinderknech is quite close to his career-best ranking, two behind 117th in the world.
And in what is his first appearance on grass, Rinderknech has already won both his qualifiers.
After overcoming Sergiy Stakhovsky in the first qualifying round, Rinderknech then needed to overcome the loss of the opening set before finishing it off in three sets against Christopher O’Connell.
What’s so exciting about Rinderknech has been his performances on clay as well, which saw him make it to the quarterfinal at Lyon. And he did the same on the indoor courts of Marseille as well.
And now with Tsitsipas withdrawing from this encounter, Rinderknech will have a much better chance of winning his first ever match on grass.
Rinderknech v Hanfmann Prediction and Tip
While Hanfman is a favourite on paper, Rinderknech will fancy a chance here. Backing him at 11/10 to win this.
