Andrey Rublev won the tournament in Doha last week. Now the Russian is one step away from the finals in Adelaide. January 17, Andrei will play with Felix Auger-Aliassime. What are the chances of Rublev for another finale? – read in our prediction.
Rublev scored a good move. In the new season, the Russian won six consecutive victories, including four victories in the tournament in Doha, which he eventually won, and two – in the current competition in Adelaide.
In the opening match of the Australian tournament, Rublev defeated American Sam Querrey (6-3, 6-3) in two sets, and defeated the British Daniel Evans (6-4, 3-6, 6-3) in the duel for reaching the semifinals.
The season of 2019, Auger-Aliassime began slurred. The representative of Canada at the ATP Cup took part in four matches in which he won only one victory, and then over the little-known Mikhail Pervolarakis (6-1, 6-3) from Greece, who is at the end of the fifth hundred ATP rating.
In Adelaide, things with Auger-Aliassime are going well so far. Although in fairness it should be noted that his opponents were not the most difficult. In the second round, Felix beat James Duckworth (6-3, 7-6), and then figured out with Alex Bolt (6-3, 6-0).
Statistics and personal meetings
- In personal meetings, Rublev leads with a score of 1-0.
- In the last five matches, Rublev won five victories, Auger-Aliassime – two.
Andrey Rublev vs Felix Auger-Aliassime Prediction
Rublev does not know the defeat in the current season. He won the tournament in Doha last week. A series of Russian victories this year is six matches. Andrei really scored an excellent move and it will be extremely difficult to stop it.
Auger-Aliassime is a difficult opponent, but so far his game is far from ideal, especially from the one that the Canadian showed in the first half of last season before the injury. Therefore, we propose to put Rublev on the victory in the upcoming meeting.
Prediction – Rublev’s victory
