Marton Fucsovics v Soon-woo Kwon Head to Head
It will be a first meeting between the 29-year-old Fucsovics and the 23-year-old Kwon.
Fucsovics Battles Past Bedene
Marton Fucsovics battled past Slovenia’s Aljaz Bedene in the first round of the Eastbourne International on Tuesday. The Hungarian needed two hours and 44 minutes for a hard fought 7-6 (7-3), 3-6, 7-6 (7-3) win.
Both players had six break points in the match, with Bedene converting two and Fucsovics just one. The Hungarian though won 81% first serve points and 50% second serve points to win 123 of 235 points in the match.
The World No. 49 Fucsovics doesn’t have a great grass court record and has gone past the first round at Wimbledon just once in three attempts. He was however beaten in the second round at the All England Club by Fabio Fognini in 2019.
This season, Fucsovics was beaten by Ugo Humbert on his grass court opener in Stuttgart. Overall the Hungarian is 16-11 this season and that includes a runner-up finish at Rotterdam. He also made it to the quarterfinals in Doha and Dubai.
The 2018 Geneva champion couldn’t replicate his early season hard court form on clay though, going 3-5 on the surface.
Kwon Gets in as Lucky Loser
On Wednesday, Fucsovics will play South Korea’s Soon-woo Kwon, who lost in the first qualifying round, but still made it to the main draw and incredibly got a first-round bye.
Ranked 77th in the world, the 23-year-old lost to Britain’s Alastair Gray 6-4, 2-6, 3-6 on Saturday but made it to the main draw as the fifth lucky loser.
Kwon is yet to win a first tour-level main draw match on grass and comes into the contest with a 0-2 record. Overall, he is 8-9 on the tour this year and is fresh off his best-ever showing at a Grand Slam, reaching the third round at the French Open.
Kwon defeated Kevin Anderson and Andreas Seppi but fell to Matteo Berrettini in the Round of 32 at Roland Garros. In other significant performances this year, the South Korean reached the quarterfinals in Singapore and Marbella.
Kwon has five Futures and three Challenger titles, winning the last of them earlier this year in Biella by defeating Lorenzo Musetti in the final.
Fucsovics v Kwon Prediction and Tip
Grass is the least preferred surface for Fucsovics, while Kwon is yet to win a match on the surface. Will be an interesting contest but the Hungarian’s experience will give him the edge. Expect Fucsovics to move into the quarterfinals.
