Ruusuvuori vs Paire: whose serve is more powerful?
On July 29, Emil Ruusuvuori will face Benoit Paire in the second round of the Atlanta Open. How many sets will the athletes play? We have made a prediction for this match, which you can find below.
Ruusuvuori is performing quite well on hard. The Finnish player became known on this surface, and we can say he prefers it to all the others. At the current competition in Atlanta, Emil started with a tough victory over Mackenzie McDonald (7-6, 7-5).
In total, Ruusuvori won 10 matches on hard courts this season and lost in five. Emil has great potential, so we expect very productive play from him during this part of the season.
Paire had a rough start at the current tournament in Atlanta. In the first round, the French tennis player faced Yasutaka Uchiyama, and Benoit needed three sets to defeat him (7-5, 6-7, 6-4).
It is clear that Paire is trying hard to get out of a long crisis. It is going well so far, but the Frenchman has a long way to go, and he needs to continue working hard on his physical form which is still far from perfect.
Paire has played 3 tie-breaks in the last 5 matches.
More than 9.5 games were played in the first set in 3 of Ruusuvuori's last 5 matches.
Paire is getting back into good form. If a month ago he showed terrible play, losing one match after another, now the Frenchman demonstrates a lot of improvement. However, it is still not enough to play at the highest level. We think that Ruusuvuori can outplay Benoit in this match.
Our prediction - Ruusuvuori to win with a handicap of (-3) games.
Prediction: Handicap (-3) to Ruusuvuori

Paire is climbing out of the long crisis. But at the moment the French tennis player is not ready to perform at the same level for several matches in a row. We believe that Ruusuvuori will be able to close the match in two sets.
Second prediction - total under 22 games.
