Outright Players to Watch For
Stefanos Tsitsipas on Grass?
Stefanos Tsitsipas is looking to put a disappointing French Open behind him, as his focus turns towards the grass season and Wimbledon.
He will start off his tour in Stuttgart this week, which is one of the better places to open your account.
This tournament has been known to have some great quality of matches, and ones that Stefanos could use at this point of his season.
The one-handed backhand of the Greek has looked suspect recently and he has not been able to lift balls to tricky sports for opponents, which might explain his horrible record against top ten players this year.
He isn’t known to be the biggest grass court player, and he definitely needs to work extra hard this time of year in order to put up results.
A good week here though, could go a long way.
Hubert Hurkacz on the Desired Surface
Hubie Hurkacz is one of the best servers on the tour and he finally gets the best chance to showcase his skills.
Hurcakz has some true game and consistency on the ground that many top players do not have.
His season up to this point has been mediocre, but his time has come to make amends.
There is nothing to say that he won’t have a great shot at this tournament, a place where he has had success massively in the past.
Look for Hubie to make plays and create opportunities in the tiebreak, especially.
Matteo Beretinni’s Return
Matteo Beretinni has been the topic of large conversation amongst tennis fans, and his ability to continue winning in his career.
Multiple injuries have already derailed his rise to the top, and although he has experienced some of the biggest highs in this sport, has also experienced some of the biggest lows.
There is now a clear focus on the grass season, a time where he should excel and find big serves.
