On the day of the final in Rome, a new tournament begins, the one in Hamburg, and we come with a tip from the match between the American Taylor Fritz and the Uruguayan Pablo Cuevas, a match that is the first of the day scheduled in the central arena and will start from 11:30.
Taylor Fritz: Team form, news and statistics
Taylor Fritz took part in Rome last week, but his evolution has been relatively modest.
And I say relative, because the American can display a much better game, even if the tournament was played on slag.
But it is true that the opponent was not a weak one, despite the ranking. Stefano Travaglia performed well in Rome, where he managed to reach the eighth, being eliminated by his much better ranked compatriot, Matteo Berrettini.
Taylor is aware that his game on slag is not yet developed and in the perspective of participating in Roland Garros, the American wants to raise his tennis level. Fritz does not move badly on the red surface, but the match in Rome was the first for the American this season.
Last year, Taylor managed to reach the semifinals in Lyon, a pre-French Open tournament, but also good performances in Madrid and Rome, where he started from qualifying and was eliminated in both competitions in the second round.
But each time he gave in to a strong opponent, such as Djokovic or Nishikori.
This is all the prerequisites for Fritz to make a good figure at Roland Garros this year as well, especially since he has a much better ranking than last year, this year being among the series leaders of the competition. Hamburg’s first opponent will not be an easy one at all, although he comes from qualifications.
On the contrary.
Cuevas is an old fox who has a very good game of slag. I think the match will be a balanced one and we have all the chances of at least one tie-break set.
Pablo Cuevas: Team form, news and statistics
Pablo Cuevas returned to his beloved surface. The Uruguayan also participated in the competitions in America, but he was just a simple presence, both on the table in Cincinnati and at the US Open.
Even though his hard game has been a good one in recent years, the long break has affected the game on the fast surface of the South American. Returning to Europe, Pablită took part in the challenger tournament in Aix en Provence, France, where she reached the quarterfinals, giving way to Daniel Altmaier.
In order to gain access to the main draw in Hamburg, Cuevas had to participate in qualifications, which he passed relatively easily.
There were 2 wins in a minimum of sets for the Uruguayan, who got his hands on it.
The game against Simon was a bit harder, Pablo also needed a set with a tie-break to impose himself.
The victories are therefore deserved for the South American, who will give a suitable opponent from the first round.
Even if Fritz is far from a good level of slag tennis, as mentioned above, the game will be more than difficult, the American having a complex game and many weapons.
It would not be out of the question to have a match decided in set 3, so the match is open to any result.

Tennis Prediction of the Day Taylor Fritz vs Pablo Cuevas
I expect a very interesting match, but also extremely disputed.
The two players have very good weapons, some that fold well on the slag, and the game will be decided by the shape of the moment, but also by the management of key moments.
Service will be a very important weapon, both players are doing well in this regard.
The return is also another important point, here Cuevas having a slight advantage. I’m going to a game and I think we’ll have at least 22 games in this game.
