The first round of an ATP US Open Grand Slam, USA (hard). This will be an interesting matchup between two guys who will give their best to use this opportunity to get some victories on the biggest stage. To have more insights on this ATP Ricardas Berankis vs Jiri Vesely match, please check out the preview below.

Ricardas Berankis

29 years old, currently 70th ranked Lithuanian is close to reaching his career-best ranking once again (50). Berankis had a lot of issues playing against a player with higher rankings these past seasons and even struggled against the lower-ranked ones. Inconsistency was considered as his biggest weakness, but this season Berankis has improved a lot on that area. He’s managed to win 39 out of 54 matches overall this season, including 21 out of 30 victories on a hard surface. Berankis comes into US Open after winning the Challenger Series in Vancouver and should be prepared for the Grand Slam as well. This is a very good chance for him to get some points on the biggest stage and show the world that he still can’t be underestimated.

Jiri Vesely

26 years old, currently 140th ranked in the world, Czech were not as good at competing on hard as his tomorrow’s opponent. The left-handed player does have a positive record on hard this season but has only played 13 matches throughout the year. He comes into the main draw of the US Open after winning 3 qualification matches. He’s beaten P. Sousa in straight sets in the first round, following with the victories over J. Jung (2-1) and P. Lorenzi (2-1) after that. Vesely was struggling on his first serve throughout the qualification matches and he will definitely have to step up on that area if he really wants to get some victories at the biggest stage of the world.
