Murray will need to improve his break point conversion rate if he wants to have any chance against Sonego’s effective serve.
Playing styles and prediction
Sonego pushed Hubert Hurkacz to five sets at the Australian Open as well as reaching the quarter-finals in Montpellier. The Italian will be looking to gain some momentum over the next few weeks as he looks to climb back inside the top 50 in the world and give himself a chance of being seeded by the time Roland Garros comes around.
Murray will look to anticipate Sonego’s service patterns successfully while maintaining a consistent level on serve. The Italian will look to use his first serve to dominate the tempo of the match as he looks to be aggressive and proactive against Murray’s defence. After the Australian Open, it’s safe to say Murray has got his fitness back but now the Brit will look to be more aggressive and finish matches off earlier. Regardless of whether Murray has that clinical instinct or not, he should have the ability to grind out a result here.
