Casper Ruud survives a tough and hard battle against Lloyd Harris in the opening round. Ruud won the match 7-5, 7-6(2) in 1 hour and 45 minutes. Ruud comes to Vienna from the 2021 Indian Wells Masters where he was defeated in the 4th round by Diego Schwartzman. Prior to that, he played at the 2021 San Diego Open where he clinched his 5th title of the season.

Lorenzo Sonego picks up a regulation win over Dominik Koepfer defeating the German 6-4, 6-3 in 1 hour and 20 minutes. The Italian has not enjoyed much success on the hardcourts ever since the Tour shifted its focus to the surface. His best run since August came at the San Diego Open where he reached the quarter-finals.

Lorenzo will come into the tie with a career indoor hardcourt record of 34-24 and is 4-3 on the surface this season while being 28-21 across all surfaces this season. Casper will take the court with a career indoor hardcourt record of 36-19 and has a 4-0 surface season record. He is 50-13 for the season across all surfaces.

Looking at these numbers, their past performances and recent form coming into the match, Casper Ruud looks the favourite for the tie given Lorenzo’s poor form on the surface and Casper’s consistency this season.

Prediction: Casper Ruud to win in straight-sets.
