Marcos Giron (+623) Vs No. 8 Andrey Rublev (-1428)
- When: Tuesday, March 2 at 6:30 AM
27-year-old American Marcos Giron is ranked 80th in the world. The 5’11” Californian has gone an uninspiring 2-3 on the year and comes into this event fresh off a first round ouster against the unheralded Tallon Griekspoor at Montpellier two weeks ago. 23-year-old Russian Andrey Rublev has gone a near-perfect 8-1 on the year with his only loss coming against countryman and world No. 4 Daniil Medvedev in the quarterfinals at the Australian Open.
Prediction: While these two players have never met before, Andrey Rublev is the ‘super easy’ pick to get it done in this one. Rublev won the most titles of any ATP World Tour player last year and looks like a player with grand slam potential in his near future. Rublev is the bigger, younger, stronger and far more complete player in this matchup.
Pick: Andrey Rublev in Straight Sets
No. 8 Stan Wawrinka (-108) Vs Karen Kachanov (-121)
- When: Tuesday, March 2 at 8:30 AM
35-year-old Swiss star Stan Wawrinka is ranked 20th in the ATP World Tour rankings. The three-time slam winner is 3- on the year and reached the second round in Australian before bowing out in a five-set thriller against Marton Fucsovics. 24-year-old Russian Karen Kachanov is ranked 21st in the rankings and is 5-2 on the year. The 6-6 star reached the third round in Australia before being dispatched by world No. 10 Matteo Berrettini in straight sets.
Prediction: Wawrinka owns a 2-1 edge against Kachanov in three career meetings, but the Russian won their last meetings 6-4, 6-7(3), 6-2 at the Canada Masters in 2019. Still, I’m going with the ‘Stanimal’ to get the ‘upset’ here in a three-set thriller. Wawrinka is fully healthy for the first time in a couple of years and has looked quite hungry this year, even if he is aging. Wawrinka is the far more experienced player in this matchup and I believe he’ll get the three-set win because of that edge.
Pick: Stan Wawrinka in 3 Sets
