ATP Stuttgart Day 2 Match Predictions

The 2024 ATP Stuttgart Open is in full swing, signaling the quick transition from the end of the French Open to the grass season. The ATP Tour season waits for no one, with players immediately moving on to the next tournament. Here are our predictions for the matches scheduled for Day 2 in Stuttgart.

James Duckworth vs Pierre-Hugues Herbert

James Duckworth will face a tough first-round challenge against Pierre-Hugues Herbert. While Herbert has yet to secure a singles win this year, his game style is well-suited for the fast grass courts in Stuttgart. Duckworth, on the other hand, lacks the firepower to unsettle Herbert.

Prediction: Herbert in 2 sets

Matteo Martineau vs Denis Shapovalov

Denis Shapovalov, coming off an early exit in Surbiton last week, will take on French qualifier Matteo Martineau. Martineau lacks experience at this level, giving Shapovalov an advantage. While Shapovalov may struggle initially, he is likely to find his rhythm as the match progresses.

Prediction: Shapovalov in 3 sets

Matteo Berrettini vs Roman Safiullin

Matteo Berrettini returns to competition after a two-month break, eager to perform on his favorite surface. However, he faces a tough first-round opponent in Roman Safiullin. Despite Safiullin’s recent form, he is expected to put up a fight rather than secure a win against Berrettini.

Prediction: Berrettini in 3 sets

Marcos Giron vs Andy Murray

The spotlight will be on Andy Murray as he questions whether this will be his last Wimbledon. With strong crowd support, Murray is likely to elevate his performance against Marcos Giron. While Giron has had a mediocre year so far, Murray’s superior baseline quality is expected to give him the edge in this match.

Prediction: Murray in 2 sets
