ATP Acapulco Day 2 Predictions Including Tsitsipas vs Paire
We move on to Day 2 of the ATP Abierto Mexicano Telcel in Acapulco on Tuesday, with ten matches on the slate. There should be some great tennis at this ATP 500 event, and we’re going to predict every match for you. This article looks at three matches, and we have two other articles as well. One features Grigor Dimitrov vs Adrian Mannarino, and the other highlights Fabio Fognini vs Stefano Travaglia.
ATP Acapulco Day 2 Predictions
Brandon Nakashima vs Frances Tiafoe
This all-American battle is a fascinating contrast. Nakashima played his way through college and is slowly building up a reputation on the professional tours. Tiafoe, meanwhile, was formerly expected to be the next American great but it just never quite panned out, for plenty of reasons. This is a matchup of America’s former future standout against a potential future top player. Nakashima doesn’t quite have the potential that Tiafoe had, but don’t sleep on him. He’s playing really well right now and I think he’ll pull off this match.
Prediction: Nakashima in 3
Daniel Galan vs Casper Ruud
Galan was impressive to end 2020, but he hasn’t quite played that well this season. Ruud, meanwhile, is a very strong player who still needs to work on his consistency. Still, playing against an out-of-form player is a great way to find some new form of your own. Ruud should win this, and it will be a good start in this tournament for him.
Prediction: Ruud in 2
Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Benoit Paire
Paire can be hot and cold (to say the least), and his recent comments about playing without fans make it hard to trust his commitment at the moment. Even on Paire’s best day, though, he would have a hard time challenging the young Greek. Tsitsipas should win this match as long as he plays even at 60% of his best.
Prediction: Tsitsipas in 2
