Grigor Dimitrov v Alexei Popyrin: Preview

Alexei Popyrin

Grigor Dimitrov played some amazing tennis in his first round at the US Open 2021. He thrashed America’s Sam Riffice in straight sets to book a place in the second round of the tournament.

Similarly, Alexei Popyrin also exhibited some great skills on the court during his match against Radu Albot in the first round. He defeated him in four sets after striking a whopping 11 aces.

While Dimitrov will have to be careful while returning Popyrin’s high service, the Belarusian player will come prepared to face the lightning forehand of the Belarusian player. Dimitrov has been in great form and will like to carry his momentum in the second round as well.

Grigor Dimitrov

Dimitrov will surely begin as the favorite before the match. He is enjoying some superb form and it won’t be surprising if he manages to finish the match in three sets only.

However, Popyrin can prove to be a threat provided he serves well consistently. He will definitely target the backhand of the Belarusian player- which is not as strong as his forehand.

Final Prediction: Grigor Dimitrov to win in four sets
