Felix Auger-Aliassime meets Jan-Lennard Struff in the first-round of the 2020 Rotterdam Open.
Felix Auger-Aliassime has had a turbulent end of 2019 and beginning of 2020. FAA has had injury issues and this has slowed down his progression and growth in his game. The Canadian has incredible potential, but his game lacks consistency. FAA is strong but he is still young minded. The Canadian does not concentrate and dominate matches like other young players, but once in a while he shows up on a big occasion and wins big. FAA will need to ensure he doesn't get injured and continues to work on his game in order to fulfil his potential.
Jan-Lennard Struff is a very experienced player. The German tank has a big serve and a great forehand. Struff was the only player to even take a set off of Novak Djokovic at the Australian Open prior to the final. Struff can challenge with the best, and can show up on big occasions. With this tournament being played in Germany, Struff will have extra motivation to play better infant of his home crowd.
These two players have met only once before, with Struff winning that encounter. This match will go the same way. Struff is playing at home and is much more experienced than FAA. FAA needs to get back to his best game, and needs to show consistency and determination to win matches. Until I see that from the Canadian, I will choose Struff to win this match easily.
Struff in 3 sets.
