1/8 finals of an ATP 500 tournament at Hamburg, Germany (clay). This should be one of the closest matches for tomorrow as two players, who have very similar play-style, will face off against each other. To have more insights on this ATP Pablo Carreno-Busta vs Jan-Lennard Struff match please check out the preview below.
28 years old and 59th ranked Spaniard is slowly but surely coming back to reach the form, that he used to show before some of the injuries. Carreno-Busta has reached his career-high in 2017 after getting to Top10, but injuries had a huge impact on his performance previously. Only in the second half of the season is finally looking like somewhat he used to be before all of the injuries. He’s reached the 3rd round of the tournament at Bastad, where he’s lost against J. Chardy and has comfortably defeated Y. Hanfmann at the first round here, at Hamburg. Pablo is being underestimated by a lot of experts and it’s only the question of time when he will finally get back on track. With a good performance at this tournament, he might really make a huge step forward.
36th currently ranked, 29 years old, German is making some noise this season. First of all, the tournament at Barcelona, where he’s defeated favorites like Goffin and Tsitsipas. He’s also got into the 4th round of the French Open by defeating Shapovalov, Albot, and Coric. He has only lost to a Djokovic, who went out as a winner of the whole tournament later on. The main thing that might have some negative impact on German’s game tomorrow is a lack of official games practice on clay after the grass season. Stuff has only played a single game after Wimbledon. It was the first round of this tournament at Hamburg, where he’s defeated T. Monteiro in straight sets. With some good performances, this season Struff has earned his name as one of the better players this season. He is now considered as a favorite for tomorrow’s match as well.
