Alejandro Davidovich Fokina v Pedro Sousa Head to Head

While they have never faced off at the highest level, there was one meeting between on the Challenger circuit in 2019 where Sousa won in three sets. That match came on clay.

Davidovich Fokina’s Played Just Two Matches on Hard Court

While Fokina has reached his career-best ranking of 35th in the world, this spike has come on the back of his performances on clay this season. Quarterfinal appearances at Rome and Roland-Garros and a semifinal in Estoril made it his best ever year till date.

How would that translate into something substantial on hard court surfaces needs to be seen.

Overall, Fokina’s record on hard courts isn’t too different from clay, in fact a win-loss ratio of 0.55, which is better than the 0.53 on clay. The issue is Fokina has played just two matches on hard court this season, at a tournament in Dubai and won and lost one.

Even indoors, he featured in a few Challengers and ATP main draws but ended on 5-5 won and lost.

Can he start off with a victory here?

Sousa Going Through Underwhelming Form

Not that Sousa’s ranking has ever improved to better than 99th in the world but this has specifically been an underwhelming season for the Portuguese player.

Sousa, who has played in 21 matches this season spread across Challengers and ATP qualifiers and main draw and has won just six. In just one of the tournaments, played on the Challenger circuit and on clay, Sousa managed to win two matches in a row.

Making it worse for Sousa is his record on hard court. It’s a shockingly horrible one, with the 120th-ranked player having featured in 12 career main draw matches on that surface and won just two matches.

It seems rather tough to imagine a player whose both, the recent record and hard court results, have been this poor, can get past his opponent here.

Davidovich Fokina v Sousa Prediction and Tip

Despite the lack of matches on hard court surfaces, this looks to be a straightforward one for Fokina, who should win this in straight sets against a player who has rarely won a match on that surface.
