Maxime Cressy v Tomas Machac Head to Head
This will be the second meeting between these two players. Their first encounter occurred in the semi-finals of a challenger event, just over 2 months ago, with Cressy narrowly winning 6-3 3-6 7-6(5). Now they are competing against each other in the second round of a grand slam.
Cressy Defeats Isner in Round One
Cressy has had a terrific start to the year, and is a force to be reckoned with, with Isner drawing the short straw of having to play him in the opening round. In the 4-hour 15-minute marathon, Cressy hit 31 aces and won 82% of first serve points.
The American was insanely clinical under pressure, saving all 9/9 break points that Isner created.
The 24-year-old crushed 92 winners past Isner, compared to just 34 unforced errors, displaying what a high quality first round tie this was. Cressy approached the net 128 times, with a success rate of 77% and this was narrowly enough to see him across the finish line 6-4 in the fifth set.
Prior to this, Cressy competed for silverware in Adelaide, losing out 7-6(6) 6-3 to Nadal. On route to the final, he came from qualifying, defeating Sousa and Vavassori without dropping a set.
In the main draw, defeated Hijikata, Opelka, Munar, and Dimitrov in the main draw, dropping just one set along the way.
Machac Yet to Lose This Year
Machac successfully navigated his way through qualifying defeating Ugo Carabelli, Bhambri, and De Jong to make the main draw. He continued his form in the main draw, getting the better of Cerundolo 6-3 2-6 6-4 6-2 to set up the tie with Cressy.
During the contest, Machac was able to hit 33 winners past his Argentine opponent, and successfully won 22/29 points at the net. The Czech was able to win 47% of return points to place himself in the second round.
The 21-year-old has yet to lose a match this year, and prior to the Australian Open successfully won the Traralgon challenger. Along the way, Machac saw off Mayot, Santillan, Kukushkin, and De Jong, before lifting the trophy by winning 7-6(2) 6-3 against Fratangelo.
Machac will be looking to avenge the loss he suffered to Cressy in November and make the third round to set up a tie with either Schwartzman or O’Connell.
Cressy v Machac Prediction and Tip
This will likely be a close match with a high chance of at least one tiebreak, however, Cressy is the favourite to advance to round 3. Both players are in impressive form and will likely be a high-quality match.
