Federico Delbonis v Leandro Riedi Head to Head
World No. 48 Federico Delbonis will play Swiss wild card Leandro Riedi for the first time on Monday.
Delbonis Targets 23rd Match Win On Clay
Federico Delbonis’ quest for a first ATP 500 title came to a juddering halt as he lost his semifinal match at the German Open to Pablo Carreno Busta in straight sets.
Still, it was a great campaign in Hamburg for the Argentine lefty who reached his biggest final in the German city in 2013 – the same year he came to prominence after beating Roger Federer.
And despite falling short in the semifinals for the second time, the week was of particular relevance. Delbonis notched his 22nd match win on the dirt – the second-most at tour-level in 2021 (behind only Stefanos Tsitsipas with 23).
Remarkably, Delbonis hasn’t won a match outside clay this season. He suffered first-round exits at three non-clay tournaments including his most recent one at Wimbledon.
Delbonis will look to tie the Greek on the leaderboard as the player with the most wins on clay when he takes on Swiss wild card Leandro Riedi in his 12th participation on a clay-court tournament.
Riedi Set to Taste Tour Level Grind
Leandro Riedi is a 19-year-old Swiss player who will mark his ATP tour-level debut at his home tournament in Gstaad.
Riedi turned professional in 2016, and has been ranked as high as No. 6 on the Junior circuit which he managed to pull off in October 2020.
For those familiar with ITF Junior Circuit, Riedi was part of a historic Roland Garros boy’s final last autumn. He, along with compatriot Dominic Stephan Stricker contested the first Grand Slam junior final between two Swiss players.
Although the higher-ranked Stricker won that battle, Riedi hasn’t stopped in his march to follow the footsteps of some of the lofty names in Swiss tennis. Born in 2002, he is a towering presence standing at 6ft 3in. It is no coincidence he packs a big serve and a powerful, precise forehand.
Riedi is one of three Swiss wild cards this week, but the lowest among them in terms of rankings (at No. 748).
Delbonis v Riedi Prediction and Tip
It would be a major shock if young Leandro Riedi managed to get anything from this match, but stranger things can happen in tennis. But we are backing the Argentine lefthander to stamp his authority in this match from the getgo.
