Arthur Rinderknech v Yannick Hanfmann Head to Head
Rinderknech won their only meeting in Halle earlier this year.
Rinderknech Edges Past Millman
Arthur Rinderknech marched into an ATP quarterfinal for the third time this year, defeating Australia’s John Millman 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 in the second round of the Bastad Open.
The 25-year-old French qualifier served 12 aces, won 80% first serve points, converted three of seven break points and saved one of three to beat the Australian in two hours and 14 minutes.
Rinderknech had on Tuesday beaten Portugal’s Pedro Sousa 6-1, 6-1 in the first round. He had also dominated his qualifying opponents, defeating Brazil’s Oscar Jose Gutierrez and Italy’s Thomas Fabbiano in straight sets.
Earlier this year, Rinderknech had reached the quarterfinals in Marseille and Lyon. He also won his first round matches in Belgrade and Halle.
Rinderknech has won three Challenger titles so far, one of which came this year in Istanbul, when he defeated Benjamin Bonzi in the final.
Hanfmann Dominates Vesely
On Friday, Rinderknech will meet Germany’s Yannick Hanfmann, who powered past seventh seed Czech Jiri Vesely in the Round of 16 on Wednesday.
The 29-year-old German needed just an hour and 24 minutes to dispatch the Czech 6-4,6-3. Hanfmann wasn’t broken in the match as he saved both the break points that he faced and converted all three of the break points that he had in the match.
Hanfmann had begun the tournament by eliminating Brazil’s Thiago Monteiro with a 6-2, 7-5 win in the first round.
The German, who reached a career-high ranking of 92 in May this year, has featured in two ATP finals before, but is yet to win a maiden title.
He has struggled to win two consecutive main-draw matches throughout this season, doing it only once before this tournament, when he reached the quarterfinals in Cagliari.
Rinderknech v Hanfmann Prediction and Tip
Expect this to be a cracking contest. Rinderknech did win against the German on grass this year, but Hanfmann is a different player on clay and will be hard to beat. Expect this contest to go the distance.
