Olympic Medal Among Highlights of the Year for Spaniard

Despite winning two titles in 2021 – the Andalucía Open in April and the Hamburg Open in July, and appearing in a further final in Moselle last month, Carreno-Busta may look back to the Olympics and the bronze medal he won in the singles, as mong his greatest achievements of the season.

And, although there have been over highlights, including a fourth round at the French Open and a quarter-final in Cincinnati, he is currently on track to finish the year ranked slightly lower than he started it.

In part this is because he lost a lot of ranking points after the US Open where he reached the semi-finals in 2020, but was knocked out in the first round this time by the American Maxime Cressy.

That run in Metz followed, and that was followed by Indian Wells where he got to the second round before losing in straight sets to Karen Khachanov.

Basilashvili Returns as Indian Wells Runner-Up

This will be Basilashvili’s first competitive match since the Indian Wells final, where he led Cameron Norrie by a set and a break, but still contrived to lose.

That was his third final of the year – he had won the other two, the Qatar Open in March and the Bavarian Championships two months later.

His form though in 2021 has varied considerably, and in between those successes, there have been weeks when he has really struggled.

The Georgian now seems certain to finish inside the world’s top 30 for the first time since 2019, but a good result here, and in the one remaining Masters event, remaining, in Paris next week, will make doubly sure of that.

Carreno-Busta v Basilashvili Prediction and Tip

Basilashvili will start the favourite for this match. He won their only previous meeting, and that was on the Spaniard’s preferred surface, suggesting the Georgian may just have the edge.
