Pablo Cuevas won the first victory of the season the day before. Ahead of the tournament in Adelaide on January 14, he has a match against young Paul Tommy. Will Uruguayan tennis help experience? – read in our prediction.

Tommy Paul

Paul has won all three of his matches this season. The American tennis player completed all three fights in two sets, and in the last two matches, Paul was confronted by quite serious opponents.

In the final qualifying tournament in Adelaide, Tommy defeated Chilean Nicolas Harri (6-3, 6-2), and in the first round, he defeated Slovenian Aljaz Beden (6-4, 6-4).

Pablo Cuevas

The ratio of wins and losses for Cuevas in the current season is 1/3. Before the tournament in Adelaide, an Uruguayan played at the ATP Cup, where he lost all his matches, in two of which he took only four games.

Cuevas may not be in his best shape yet, but the starting match in Adelaide against Railay Opelka showed that Pablo’s game form is not as bad as it might have seemed after the ATP Cup.

Statistics and personal meetings

  • Previously, tennis players have not met each other.
  • The ratio of wins and losses for Paul this season is 3/0, for Cuevas – 1/3.

Tommy Paul vs Pablo Cuevas Prediction

Paul has not lost this season yet – in three fights he won three victories. And in the last two meetings, the American defeated quite serious opponents – Nicholas Harry (6-3, 6-2) and Aljaz Bedene (6-4, 6-4).

Paul rightfully goes to favorites at the bookmakers in the upcoming meeting with Cuevas. Pablo is not always good at playing on the fast courts, as evidenced by his three defeats in four games this season on hard.
