John Millman v Benjamin Bonzi Head to Head
90th-ranked Millman hasn’t met 63rd-ranked Bonzi before this.
Tough Year For Aussie Veteran
2021 has been an excruciatingly tough year for John Millman. The Australian began the season on home soil at the ATP Cup where he garnered a solitary win in singles.
And up until Dubai, Millman did not manage to post a W in five tournament appearances. Perhaps the most damaging defeat of the lot came at the Australian Open when he lost to Corentin Moutet in the first round in five sets.
He managed to eradicate that woeful start with some consistent run of results on the claycourt season, reaching the quarterfinals in Munich after posting two upsets over Alexei Popyrin and Guido Pella. Unfortunately for Millman, his momentum came to a crashing halt after he was forced to pull out from Roland Garros due to a back problem.
Millman’s return coincided with his best form this year during the second half of the campaign. He made three more quarterfinals, but his failure to defend his Nur Sultan title derailed his ascendancy. The 32-year-old dropped down over 30 spots and currently sits at No. 90 – his lowest ATP ranking since April 2018.
A Year To Remember for Bonzi
If Millman has struggled this year, his opponent Benjamin Bonzi has strung an unforgettable 2021 for all the right reasons.
The Frenchman has won a record-tying six titles on the ATP Challenger Tour, and right now, all the stars are aligning for the 25-year-old to make one last dash before the season ends- this time on the main tour.
The scary part is that Bonzi might need a new trophy cabinet if he continues racking up trophies for fun. He has been a sensation on the ATP’s second-tier, winning 50 matches from a possible 63, translating to a 79% winning rate. No player has won more than six titles in a single season and that could be a secondary objective for the next few weeks.
Bonzi hasn’t quite replicated that form on the main tour. But given that he has spent most of 2021 painstakingly grinding out for victories in Challengers and sprinting towards a top-100 ranking, his efforts have been rewarded handsomely.
The Frenchman began the season sitting at No. 165 in the rankings but now enters this contest at No. 61 – well clear of Millman.
Millman v Bonzi Prediction and Tip
Bonzi has won six Challenger titles including the indoors event in Rennes last month. His most recent defeat in Mouilleron-le-Captif could count as a blessing in disguise, giving him plenty of time to recharge and recover from a busy September. Expect the Frenchman to cruise here.
