ATP Rome Day 2 Predictions Including Jack Draper vs Borna Coric

Jack Draper in action ahead of the ATP Stuttgart Open.

The action continues at ATP Rome Day 2 as players look to fine-tune their clay-court game ahead of the 2024 French Open. We have some intriguing matches on the Thursday slate, including Jack Draper vs. Borna Coric. As always, we at LWOT have the preview and prediction for all matches around the grounds of Rome. But who will advance?

ATP Rome Day 2 Predictions

Dominik Koepfer vs Andrea Vavassori

Head-to-Head: first meeting

Dominik Koepfer comes to ATP Rome on a five-match losing streak. He has yet to win a clay-court match this year. Italian wildcard Andrea Vavassori loves clay and has had most of his ATP success on the surface. He comes into Rome on a three-match losing streak but should be able to engage the home crowd.

Prediction: Vavassori in 3

Roberto Carballes Baena vs Christopher O’Connell

Head-to-Head: first meeting

Roberto Carballes Baena has played some of the best tennis of his career over the last 12 months. He is 7-3 in his last ten clay-court matches, including a run to the Marrakech final. Christopher O’Connell has never been a great clay-court player and has yet to win a ATP main draw match on the surface this year. Carballes Baena should use his movement and consistency to cruise to victory.

J.J. Wolf vs Stefano Napolitano

Head-to-Head: first meeting

25-year-old American J.J. Wolf has had a tough 2024 season. He is 1-5 in tour-level matches and 3-11 overall. He looks to get back on track against wildcard Stefano Napolitano. The 29-year-old Italian has dominated the Challenger Tour this year, holding a 15-5 record. That said, he has just one tour-level win in his career. He is 8-4 on the clay and should be able to push around the American.

Prediction: Napolitano in 2

Jack Draper vs Borna Coric

Head-to-Head: first meeting

Jack Draper is on the brink of top 20 breakout, but can it happen on the clay? The 22-year-old Brit is 3-3 on the surface this year but has played some tight matches against top 10 players. Borna Coric has always been a solid clay-courter but comes to ATP Rome out of form. He is 3-7 since February. I think Draper’s ability to move Coric around the court will wear down the Croatian.

Prediction: Draper in 3
