ATP Geneva Day 2 Predictions Including Jack Draper vs Tomas Machac

Jack Draper US OPEN

It promises to be an action-packed Monday at the ATP Geneva Open with six exciting matches on schedule. The pick of those will feature British duo of Andy Murray and Jack Draper, who will play Yannick Hanfmann and Tomas Machac respectively. We also have a separate article to predict the rest of the day’s matches. So, who will advance?

ATP Geneva Day 2 Predictions

Emil Ruusuvuori vs Marcos Giron

Head-to-head: Giron 3-0 Ruusuvuori

Ruusuvuori is one of those players you feel should be ranked a lot higher than his current position. Injuries have not helped him in that regard and he lacked momentum going into the big events. His only win since the end of February was an impressive one because he defeated Brazilian clay-court specialist Thiago Seyboth Wild at the Turin Challenger last week. The Finn has a poor record against Giron (0-3), losing in their most recent clash at the 2024 Italian Open. But it is pertinent to note that the American was equally in dreadful form before Rome, losing four straight matches. There is little to separate them in their rematch and we are likely to get three sets in this one.
Prediction: Ruusuvuori in 3

Aslan Karatsev vs Flavio Cobolli

Head-to-head: first meeting

Flavio Cobolli is destined to break the Top 50. In fact two wins in Geneva could help him do it. Last week he came within a few games from defeating Sebastian Korda in Rome. Aslan Karatsev has not played a lot of tennis this year. He suffered a serious knee injury in Brisbane which required surgery. After spending nearly four months rehabbing, he’s resurfaced in time for Roland Garros playing two clay-court tournaments before Geneva. Still, it’s too early to expect the Russian to find any rhythm here.

Jack Draper vs Tomas Machac

Head-to-head: Machac 2-0 Draper

Draper will rise to a new career-high ranking of No. 35 on Monday despite his second-round exit in Rome. The addition of Wayne Ferrerira to his coaching team will be a major boost in the Briton’s aspirations for a longer stay in tennis tournaments. Injuries have prevented th 22-year-old from maximizing on his true potential. Tomas Machac is another rising talent who has enjoyed a steady climb into the Top 50. The Czech hasn’t played in almost a month which makes him susceptible to an early loss here. Draper is still a novice on clay, but Geneva’s profile as a fast clay court should help his cause.
Prediction: Draper in 3
