Alejandro Davidovich Fokina vs Ugo Humbert: Match Preview
Fokina started his clay court swing of the year with the Andalucia Open. Although he did not go beyond the round of sixteen, it gave him practice for his next tournament which was an ATP Masters 1000 event.

Alejandro Davidovich Fokina vs Ugo Humbert: Prediction
Fokina plays his best tennis on clay and usually outhits his opponents in rallies. Humbert really does not have the power game, and relies on the opponent’s power and pace off the surface. Clay courts which are slow, won’t give him that. Fokina has been in good form and would like to continue in the same vein against the Frenchman.
Match Prediction: Alejandro Davidovich Fokina will beat Ugo Humbert in three sets.
