ATP Los Cabos Day 3 Predictions

The second set of ATP Los Cabos Day 3 Predictions features like Felix Auger-Aliassime and Miomir Kecmonovic. Both are top seeds who will have the title in their sights. However, they must first get through the initial stages of this tournament. They will be joined by Australians on Wednesday Thanasi Kokkinakis and Moldova’s Radu Albot, both of whom have shown good form in recent months. Will the favorites continue to shine in Mexico? That’s exactly what we look at in this series of predictions. Be sure to check out our first predictions for coverage of the other four games!

ATP Los Cabos Day 3 Predictions

Radu Albot vs. Jason Kuebler

Head to Head: 2 – 0 Kubler

Jason Kubler is leading the neck-and-neck race, winning his meet at the French Open earlier this year. However, Albot has since played very good tennis and is a much better hard court player than a clay court player. That being said, this should still be a close match. Albot has more power off the floor, but Kubler has the better serve of the two. I expect the former to be more important in this game and the Moldovan should emerge victorious from a crucial set scenario.

Thanasi Kokkinakis vs. Steve Johnson

Head to Head: 1-0 Johnson

These two have met before, but it was 2013, so have little leverage here. Johnson played good tennis in 2022 and shouldn’t be taken lightly. However, Kokkinakis is in the midst of a career year and is working hard to establish himself as the player many thought he could be before his wave of injuries. The Aussie already has a title to his name this year and is sure to have more success before the year is out. A relatively good draw means he has a shot at a deep run in Los Cabos depending on where Auger-Aliassime’s game is. In any case, he should reach the quarterfinals with a direct victory over Johnson.

Miomir Kecmanovic vs. Jordan Thompson

Head to Head: 5-0 Kecmanovic

It’s very difficult to ignore a 5-0 duel for several years, so I won’t do it. Until Jordan Thompson proves otherwise, he can’t beat Miomir Kecmanovic. Given that the Aussie has generally been bad this year, I have no reason to think that will change any time soon. Select Kecmanovic for relatively easy progress here.

Felix Auger Aliassime vs Alex Hernandez

Head to Head: First meeting

Auger-Aliassime started the year like a house on fire and seemed to have put the days of early losses and suffocation behind when he raised his first ATP title in Rotterdam. However, the Canadian has struggled since then and has seven first-round or second-round exits since winning the title. except a decent run at the French Open, he hasn’t had much to show for the last few months of tennis and he’s keen to rectify that in the back half of the year. Luckily he meets a very tough opponent here. Alex Hernandez ranks outside the top 500 and benefited immensely from John Millman’s withdrawal as he secured a first-round win. However, that’s as far as it will go for the Mexican native. He’s superior in every area, and unless the FAA knock themselves out of the game, the Canadian should easily win.
