Alex de Minaur v Cristian Garin Head to Head
The pair have played each other twice before on outdoor hard courts. De Minaur won at the US Open in 2019, and again at Indian Wells last year.
Defending Champion de Minaur
De Minaur is the defending champion in Eastbourne, having beaten the Italian Lorenzo Sonego in last year’s final.
That was his fifth major ATP title, his four other tournament wins having come on hard courts.
He will be looking to improve on a Wimbledon record this year that is fairly modest – a third round appearance back in 2018 is the best he has managed there.
He has not been in the best of form recently – beaten in the French Open at the opening round stage, he also lost his first match of the year on grass at Rosmalen.
He did slightly better at the Queen’s Club Championships last week, reaching the second round before losing in three sets to the Spaniard Alejandro Davidovich-Fokina, beaten in three sets.
Garin Made Wimbledon Fourth Round Last Year
Although Garin is far better known as a clay court player, he did reach the fourth round at Wimbledon last year, which matches his best ever showing at a Grand Slam tournament.
However, he has not prepared much for this year’s event, playing just the one match on grass so far this year, and that was at Halle last week, where he was beaten in straight sets by the American Sebastian Korda.
He had enjoyed a relatively successful clay court season, although without adding to his haul of trophies.
The Chilean reached the semi-finals in Houston, the last eight in Rome, and the third round at Roland Garros.
De Minaur v Garin Prediction and Tip
Notwithstanding what Garin achieved at Wimbledon last year, de Minaur is the better and more natural grass court player, and the Australian should make a winning start to the defence of his title.
