ATP Geneva Day 4 Predictions

Bernabe Zapata Miralles vs Christopher O’Connell

Head-to-head: first meeting

Zapata Miralles, set to make his first appearance as a seeded player at a slam, has had a decent run on grass after a shaky start. The Spaniard reached the fourth round of Madrid and went a set up on eventual champion Daniil Medvedev in Rome. In his Geneva opener, Zapata Miralles comfortably dispatched Vitaliy Sachko. O’Connell had the reverse trend this clay season, reaching the semifinals of Munich and quarterfinals in Marrakech but going 1-2 across Madrid and Rome. The Australian fought past Nino Serdarusic in three sets. Zapata Miralles’ form is undeniable and I expect him to advance.

Adrian Mannarino vs Ilya Ivashka

Head-to-head: Mannarino 1-1 Ivashka

Mannarino got his first Top 300 win on clay in 12 months. The Frenchman’s game does not gel with the surface but he ousted Filip Krajinovic in straight sets in a surprising twist of the Geneva first round. Ivashka broke a five-loss streak, also out of form, but got his win over Guido Pella. Both will be happy to see each other across the net but I see Ivashka defending his quarterfinal here.

Prediction: Ivashka in 3

Taylor Fritz vs Marcos Giron

Head-to-head: Fritz 5-1 Giron

Fritz is coming off of a couple of disappointing losses to Zhang Zhizhen in Madrid and Yannick Hanfmann in Rome, winning just five games in his last match. Giron beat Bublik in his opener but with Fritz winning five of their previous six meetings, including at Dallas not only this year but also the last, the favorite is clear here.

Prediction: Fritz in 2
