Jan-Lennard Struff v Marcos Giron Head to Head
Interestingly, their only previous meeting also came on grass where Giron overcame the first set defeat to get past Struff in a three-setter.
Struff Returning from Injury after Woeful Start
A foot injury at the Miami Masters earlier this year caused Struff to retire from his opening round match against Pedro Martinez and he hasn’t played since. That’s nearly two and a half months of being out of the game.
That, however, wasn’t Struff’s only issue.
Because coming into that encounter against Martinez, Struff had won just one match all season – a shock ATP Cup win over John Isner in January. Since that win, Struff lost eight matches in a row, including that retirement in Miami, including three matches in which he was the pre-match favourite.
Coming into the grass season, Struff will hope to emulate what he had done last year in Stuttgart.
Wins over Denis Shapovalov, Miomir Kecmanovic and Lucas Pouille had helped Struff make the semifinal in this competition. He will need to shrug his injury off to repeat that showing.
Giron on a Three-Match Losing Streak
Clay has never been Giron’s most preferred surface and so a three-match losing streak coming into this tournament in Stuttgart Open, with all of those losses coming on red dirt, wouldn’t be too much of a surprise for the American.
That said, it’s not as if the world number 49 (at the time of writing but to fall a few places down next week) has shown any kind of form on hard court surfaces too this season.
Giron had won just three of his 10 matches in hard court competitions and as a result of that, fallen off his career-best ranking.
The American had made it to the semifinal in Dallas earlier this year but more vitally has played just six main draw matches on grass. He has won and lost three of them on it and might not have it as easy as it could have been against a returning player.
Struff v Giron Prediction and Tip
There is no doubting that Struff will struggle irrespective of his opponent’s issues but can he hold fort? We think Giron will scoop this up in straight sets.
