John Millman v Jaume Munar Head to Head
This will be a first meeting between the World no. 48 Millman and World no. 71 Munar.
Millman Stretched By Popko
Defending champion John Millman was stretched by World No. 188 Dmitry Popko of Kazakhstan in the first round. The Australian lost the first set against the 24-year-old before fighting back to move into the second round.
The 3-6, 6-1, 6-4 victory improved Millman to 15-20 this year. The 32-year-old has struggled for consistency throughout the season and had come into the tournament with a 4-6 record from the last 10 matches.
Quarterfinalist in Munich and Washington, Millman will be hoping to reach the last eight stage for the third time this year. Last year, Millman had won the Nur Sultan title by defeating Adrian Mannarino in the final. That remains his only ATP career title. He also has two other runner-up finishes.
On Tuesday, Millman saved six of nine break points and converted five of six in a two hour and 10 minute contest. He will be hoping for a better showing against clay court specialist Jaume Munar in the second round.
Munar Eliminates Vesely
World no. 71 Jaume Munar moved into the second round with a straight sets win over the Czech Reoublic’s Jiri Vesely in the first round on Tuesday.
Munar, who is 1-7 from all matches since reaching the second round of the French Open, needed an hour and 50 minutes to beat the Czech 6-3, 7-6 (8-6).
The Spaniard won 72% of points on the back of his first serve and converted two of four break points. He also faced four break points on his serve, but saved three of them.
This was the 24-year-old’s first main draw win on hard courts this season. He had come in with a 0-2 record on the surface. Overall, the win improved the World no. 71 to 12-16. All his wins had come on clay, where he reached the final in Marbella and semifinal in Parma.
John Millman v Jaume Munar Prediction and Tip
Millman is 6-10 on hard surfaces this year, but he is still a better player than Munar on the surface. The Spaniard is yet to prove himself outside of clay and will find it tough against the defending champion. Expect Millman to ease into the quarterfinals.
