ATP Geneva Day 3 predictions including Alexander Zverev vs Christopher Eubanks

Alexander Zverev in action ahead of the ATP Geneva Open.

Six exciting matches are scheduled on day three at the ATP Geneva Open and, as always, we here at LWOT will be offering our predictions for every match on the slate, including Marco Cecchinato vs Wu Yibing. But who will secure their spot in the next round?

ATP Geneva Day 3 Predictions

Guido Pella vs Ilya Ivashka

Head-to-head: Pella 1-0 Ivashka

Guido Pella, once ranked as high as 20th in the world, had been out of the game for an extended stretch after being diagnosed Morton’s neuroma in 2020, before making his comeback earlier this season. He deserves great credit for getting back on court, but it has not been an easy return to the tour for the Argentine. He might have some hope here with Ilya Ivashka not exactly pulling up any trees himself at the moment. In fact, Ivashka comes into the match with five straight losses behind him. Unfortunately for Pella, however, this is probably the ideal match for the Belarusian to get back to winning ways.

Hugo Delien vs J.J. Wolf

Head-to-head: first meeting

Hugo Delien generally plies his trade on the Challenger circuit and, though he has a solid enough record on this surface at tour-level, there is a reason he has not yet cracked the top 60. J.J. Wolf, meanwhile, has made a generally impressive transition to the clay so far this season, with his victory over Hubert Hurkacz at the ATP Rome Masters an impressive achievement, even if the Pole does typically struggle on the terre battue. If Wolf can bring his big forehand into play and limit Dellien’s time on the ball, he should emerge with another creditable win here.

Alexander Zverev vs Christopher Eubanks

Head-to-head: first meeting

Alexander Zverev hasn’t hit his peak level since his horror injury at Roland Garros last year, which he will hope to do before this year’s edition where he has semifinal points to defend. That said, Zverev even not at his best, is better than most of the field in Geneva. Christopher Eubanks is playing only his second clay court match of the season, but did show some good touches in defeating Benoit Paire convincingly in the first round, though the Frenchman did adopt his customary laissez-faire approach. Eubanks will need his serve to keep his competitive, but it seems unlikely that he will give Zverev much trouble.
