ATP Geneva Day 4 Predictions

Grigor Dimitrov vs Roberto Carballes Baena

Head-to-head: Dimitrov 1-0 Carballes Baena

Dimitrov is defending a quarterfinal here and won a round in each of his clay events but never won a second round, albeit his last two losses came against Carlos Alcaraz and Novak Djokovic. Carballes Baena won his second ATP title in Marrakech at the start of April, though the Spanish veteran’s results have been mediocre since. Dimitrov comes in as the favorite though Carballes Baena could grind him down on the right day.

Nicolas Jarry vs Tallon Griekspoor

Head-to-head: first meeting

Jarry broke a three-match losing streak in the first round, finally looking comfortable this European clay season in a 6-4 6-2 win over Dusan Lajovic. Griekspoor enjoyed a strong start to the season, winning his first ATP title in Pune before reaching the third round at the Australian Open and the semifinals of Rotterdam. The Dutchman has not won two straight matches since though, breaking a five-loss streak with a tight straight-set win over Stefano Travaglia. Both players will look to seize the opportunity but Jarry looked better in his opener.

Prediction: Griekspoor in 2

Casper Ruud vs JJ Wolf

Head-to-head: first meeting

Two-time defending champion Casper Ruud is undefeated in this Swiss city and will be looking to add a third Geneva trophy on Saturday. The Norwegian came alive after a largely disappointing clay season in Rome, making his way through lower-ranked players to get to the semifinal before losing from a set up to Holger Rune. Wolf has performed surprisingly well on clay, beating Hubert Hurkacz to reach the third round of Rome and ousting Hugo Dellien in his Geneva opener 6-4 6-2. Wolf will give Ruud a challenge but I’ll believe someone beating the Norwegian here when I see it.

Prediction: Ruud in 3
