Andrey Rublev – Federico Delboni’s head to head
You’ve played before, last year at Wimbledon. Rublev won 4-6 6-4 6-1 6-2.
Rublev’s anger and winner
Andrey Rublev caused drama when he slammed a ball into his chair so hard he nearly crashed into a court sweeper after the first set in his match against Soonwoo Kwon. He apologized after the match, but that anger served him well for the rest of the match.
Rublev won the next three sets to advance to the 2nd round where he will face another annoying player with Delbonis. It was a fine performance from Rublev as he hit 52 winners! He only made 28 mistakes, which is very good. He was aggressive as always, hitting 15 aces and saving all 5 break points.
There weren’t many negatives for the Russian man, who now has an impressive 26-7 on the year and 8-3 on clay. He’ll be fine against Delbonis, but he needs to find that anger in other ways.
If he does that, Delbonis will have no chance, because the difference in quality is huge.
Delbonis braves the storm against Mannarino
Federico Delbonis didn’t have the best years in 2022. His biggest highlight was when he retired Juan Martin Del Potro. Other than that, he just didn’t do much.
9-15 a year and 7-10 on clay is a far cry from its level on the surface last year. Luckily, in round one he got Adrian Mannarino, a player who lost pretty much every clay court match he’s ever played. And yet there were problems for Delbonis. He was down 2-5 in the 2nd set but rallied to win it.
It was a decent effort but fairly passive. He’s only beaten 17 winners in the two-hour affair, and that’s really not a lot. Helped by Mannarino’s 33 unforced errors. He won’t get that kind of help from Rublev, at least not if it doesn’t put pressure on him.
He served well so that’s something he can build some confidence from. He’ll have to do it again to even have a chance.
Rublev v Delbonis prediction and tip
So Rublev is the big favorite in this matchup and it’s pretty clear why. Delbonis played pretty passively in round one and that’s not going to work. You have to pressure Rublev to help him self-destruct, and Delbonis just doesn’t have the weapons to do it. Quick here unless the Argentine finds his serve.
