Roger Federer Halle

The exciting ATP Halle Open 2021 moves into Day 3 with four of the eight Round of 16 matches scheduled. 2019 champion Roger Federer is in action along with other contenders in the form of Andrey Rublev and Felix Auger-Aliassime. We preview and predict all four matches scheduled.

ATP Halle Open Day 3 Predictions

Philipp Kohlschreiber vs Corentin Moutet

Head to head – First Meeting

Corentin Moutet caught a lucky break as his first round opponent David Goffin retired from the match. The Frenchman created plenty of break opportunities but Goffin was clearly not at his best so not much can be read into that.

Philipp Kohlschreiber is 37 years old, but the German is still pretty fun to watch and his game doesn’t seem to gone away a lot. Grass should be a welcome change of surfaces as the points are generally shorter. Expect the player who’s willing to close out points at the net to be the victor and the young Frenchman looks likely to take that initiative.
Prediction: Moutet inĀ 3

Marcos Giron vs Jan-Lennard Struff

Head to head – First Meeting

Marcos Giron overcame a tough opening round match against Vasek Pospisil but the American’s campaign here will only get tougher. He now takes an in form Jan-Lennard Struff who took out the top seed Daniil Medvedev in straight sets.

It wasn’t a one-off performance from the German since Struff has been playing well since the French Open. Grass should definitely suit Struff even more and with the way he’s started here, expect Struff to put up another strong performance here.
Prediction: Struff in 2

Andrey Rublev vs Jordan Thompson

Head to head – First Meeting

Andrey Rublev is a title contender here in Halle, and his first round match against a tough opponent in Karen Khachanov suggested the Russian is locked in. Rublev plays an extremely aggressive style of tennis which makes him ideal for the courts in Halle. His next opponent Jordan Thompson played a solid match but Rublev is a level or two above in terms of ball striking. Expect Rublev to dominate baseline rallies and progress ahead.
Prediction: Rublev in 2

Roger Federer vs Felix Auger-Aliassime

Head to head – First Meeting

A clash of two generations this. Roger Federer now 39 years old, faces a player born in the year 2000. Felix Auger-Aliassime is coming off a great tournament in Stuttgart and should make this contest extremely enthralling. This match should serve as a good test for Federer as he eyes Wimbledon 2021. Expect a tight contest throughout and while Auger-Aliassime is a precocious talent, this match looks likely it’ll be decided by experience.
Prediction: Federer in 3
