Lorenzo Musetti comes into his second match on the back of a defeat against Argentina’s Sebastian Baez losing the match 1-4, 1-4, 4-3(5), 3-4(5). Musetti’s form has seen a dip in the 2nd half of the season and the Italian will look to bounce back strongly in hopes of finishing in the top-2 of his group. He last played at the 2021 Paris Masters losing in the 2nd round after having entered the main-draw as a lucky loser.

Hugo Gaston had a similar fate in his first match against Sebastian Korda but unlike Musetti, the match went down the wire. Gaston initially took a 2-0 set lead but Korda staged an epic comeback to win the match 3-4(2), 3-4(6), 4-0, 4-3(3), 4-0. Gaston was the last to qualify for the Finals after his quarter-final run at the Paris Masters having entered the main-draw as a qualifier.

Musetti will come into the tie with a career indoor hardcourt record of 18-17 and is 10-8 on the surface this season while having a season record of 36-29 across all surfaces. Brandon will take the court with a career indoor hardcourt record of 31-31 and is 10-8 on the surface this season and has a 44-28 record for the season across all surfaces including his Challenger tournaments record.

Looking at these numbers, their recent form and performances in the past few weeks, Hugo Gaston remains the favourite for the tie given his better results recently as compared to Lorenzo.

Match Prediction: Hugo Gaston to win in 4-sets.
