Carreno Busta/Lopez – Hsieh/Rungkat Match Prediction | 29-08-2019 11:00

It has been a confidence-building week for Denis Shapovalov, one the Canadian desperately needed after a difficult period on the clay and grass in Europe. But he will need to be at his very best up against the in-form Andrey Rublev, who reached the quarterfinals in Cincinnati last week. At the Winston-Salem Open, he began his campaign with a comfortable 6-2 6-4 victory over Tennys Sandgren before dispatching Miomir Kecmanovic 6-2 6-3.

He looks like a different player both in approach and focus. Think the Shapo Youhzney connection has reaped major benefits for SHapo. Shapo has been excellent at getting points back to neutral and going from there, when in the past he would try to hit a winner, no matter where he was. Rublev is playing terrific this week, but Shapo is playing at a different level, one that few on tour can match. I am sure there will be many slice bh hit at practice session today.

Expect Paire to deny Carreno Busta once again. This match looks set to provide an entertaining contrast between the aggressive hitting of Paire, particularly off the backhand-side, and the excellent defensive skills of Carreno Busta. But he has consistently struggled to deal with Paire and has not beaten him on a hard court since the 2014 US Open. The Spaniard may not have the same easy power as some players on tour, but at his best he gives very little away and can spread the court well.

Filip Krajinovic retired against the American having lost the first set 2-6 whilst Feliciano Lopez withdrew trailing 3-6 1-3 against the Pole. This should be an entertaining match between two players who are well-capable of playing on the front foot. The 22-year-old can hurt opponents off both wings and also possesses an excellent serve. But Hurkacz is the more versatile of the two. Tiafoe, one of just two Americans left in the draw, should have the fulsome backing of the crowd. Both Frances Tiafoe and Hubert Hurkacz benefitted from retirements in the third round. That should see him over the line against Tiafoe.

Prediction and head to head Pablo Carreno-Busta vs. Marius Copil

Millman, who enjoyed a first-round bye, has had to work slightly harder, but rallied from a set down to beat Marco Cecchinato before besting Robin Haase 6-3 6-4. Expect him to take full advantage. Johnson has scored three excellent wins, beating Corentin Moutet, Dan Evans and Casper Ruud, all without dropping a set. But Johnson has looked inspired all week in Winston-Salem and has game is that much better suited to the conditions in North Carolina. Neither Steve Johnson nor John Millman have had particularly good years by their high standards, but both men have looked impressive at times this week.

And with the US Open now looming large on the horizon, every play left in the draw will surely be eager to keep their momentum going ahead of the final Major of the year. But who will reach the semifinals in North Carolina? Just eight men remain in contention for the Winston-Salem Open title after four thrilling days of tennis.

Winners and unforced errors will likely be plentiful in this one, with both men at their best when playing on the front foot. Unseeded in North Carolina, he began his tournament with a 6-4 6-2 win over Thomas Fabbiano before battling past Albert Ramos Vinolas 6-7 6-3 6-1. But Shapovalov can struggle to deal with pace into his backhand and Rublev should be able to take advantage. He then edged past Sam Querrey in two tiebreaks to reach the quarterfinals.

I want Pablo to win here, but this is really a coin flip match that should go four or five sets. He did seem ok last week, so he should keep this competitive. Carreno Busta has had great success at the US Open in the past, but as he continues to return from injury, fitness in a best of five series will be a big question mark. Pella is a grinder who will use his defense and clay court skill to try to frustrate his opponent into making errors and I think his clay court defense should translate really well to hard courts. This is probably going to feature lots of tough, long rallies and its going to be a pretty long match, so over games is the bet.
