Laslo Djere in action ahead of the ATP Sardinia Open

US Open day 2 predictions including Andrey Rublev vs Laslo Djere

British No. 1 Cameron Norrie and Andrey Rublev are two of the top players in action at the 2022 US Openwe have Predictions for every match at the US Open on Day 2 including Rafael Nadal’s match.

Cameron Norrie vs. Benoit Paire

Damian Kust: Is this the last slam main draw for Benoit Paire? We shall see but the Frenchman has basically not been himself since the pandemic. It is very doubtful that he can win three sets against someone of Cameron Norrie’s class at the moment. Norrie in the 3rd

Steen Kirby: With 5-24 on the season, there’s not much hope for Benoit Paire this season, he’s still collecting main draw checks in some events but his ranking has dropped due to poor performance. Norrie is 41-20 on the season and currently the UK’s elite player on tour. He was a semi-finalist at Wimbledon and Cincy, reaching the Los Cabos finals in between. Norrie in the 3rd

Grigor Dimitrov vs. Steve Johnson

Damian: Grigor Dimitrov has struggled with his fitness lately, including at Wimbledon when he retired… Steve Johnson. The two have quite a long history together and it was usually close. When Dimitrov has problems, the American is perfectly capable of taking it. Johnson in the 5th

Steen: 16-14 on the season, Johnson has had some success but it has been inconsistent, Dimitrov is a similar 20-18 and this pair has met many times. Johnson plays such a small advantage for him in his home slam that both players are good scorers but struggle for consistency on both sides of the court. Johnson in the 5th

Andrey Rublev vs Laslo Djere

Damian: Laslo Djere finally broke his tiebreak streak and reached the final in Winston-Salem. It took a lot out of him physically and he’s still not a top-notch hard court player. Andrey Rublev should be pretty comfortable with that. Rublev in the 3rd

Steen: A semifinalist in Washington with 36 wins this year, Rublev has managed to defeat lower-ranked players like Djere this season. Djere reached the final at Winston-Salem and has found good form, fatigue might be a factor, I could see him make a set and make it interesting but eased off from there. Rublev in the 4th

Miomir Kecmanovic vs. Lerner Tien

Damian: Lerner Tien is very mature for his age and this will be a great experience for him. However, players like Miomir Kecmanovic are usually terrible matchups for juniors. The Serb’s consistency is just brutal for young players who usually can’t maintain a constant level yet. Kecmanovic in 3

Steen: Rookie Tien will have a chance to learn against Miomir Kecmanovic, a top junior, Tien looks pretty much outclassed against the experienced and seeded Serb Kecmanovic. Kecmanovic reached the semifinals in Los Cabos this summer and should be cruising here. Kecmanovic in 3
