Tommy Paul

Last year, a young 22-year-old American tennis player literally burst into the TOP-100. Tommy is now at line 66 in the ATP table. Last year, Paul won three challengers at once: in Sarasota, New Haven and Tivuron.

Tommy Paul approaches the tournament in Acapulco as the 70th racket of the world. The American spent an impressive last season, winning 45 of 61 matches, even though most of his victories fell on the level of Challengers.

In the new season, he plays more at the highest level, where he achieved 10 victories in 14 matches. He was especially good in January in Australia, where he reached the semifinal of the tournament in Adelaide and the third round of the Australian Open.

Now his form is in decline, as evidenced by the departures in the first round of the tournament in New York and in the second round of competitions in Delray Beach last week. In Acapulco, he confidently went through a sieve of qualifications, not giving Petrovic and Elahi Galan a single set.

Mackenzie McDonald

Mackenzie McDonald almost did not play last season, and in 2020, on the account of the 196th racket of the world, there were only three victories in nine matches, although in 2019 he was the 57th racket of the world.

During his professional career, the American took part in 313 matches, and in 257 of them he beat his counterparts. MacDonald’s favorite cover is hard, in which he won a total of 131 matches and lost 89. Last year, the US representative made it to the quarter finals at the Acapulco competition.

In New York, he did not qualify, and in Delray Beach he flew out in the second round, so his form may be even worse than that of Paul, who showed a high-quality game this season.

Predictions

Immediately it is worth noting the fact that compatriots meet in the upcoming match. That is, the result of the match can be very unpredictable. It is worth paying tribute to Paul, who overcame qualifications at current competitions.

However, do not forget that Mackenzie performs on PR (i.e., defends his rating after a long absence from the tour due to injury). This means that the fans will enjoy a spectacular and protracted fight, and the winner will be determined only in the third set. So a positive handicap on an underdog is the best option in this case.

  • Our prediction: Tommy Paul Will Win.
