Fucsovics vs Kudla predictions


Marton Fucsovics looks to continue his solid start to the season when he takes on Denis Kudla in the opening round of the ATP 500 Barcelona Banc Sabadell Open on Monday.

Currently ranked No. 37 in the world, Fucsovics has risen into a steady top 40 player over the last couple of seasons, and he will be hoping for another strong class season after winning his maiden ATP title in Geneva last year.

The Hungarian is still yet to lose in the opening round of a tournament all season, although he did lose his first match after a bye to Felix Auger-Aliassime in Monte-Carlo last week. Fucsovics finished runner-up in Sofia earlier this season and made further quarter-finals in Rotterdam and Dubai. He’s 2/9 @ Ladbrokes to win

Kudla meanwhile has struggled on clay throughout his career and only has three tour-level victories under his belt on the surface.

The American didn’t get off to a good start on the dirt in Houston a couple of weeks ago, losing in the opening round to Bernard Tomic, who also finds it tough on the clay. In fact, Kudla has been finding life on tour quite difficult all season, registering a 3-9 record and failing to win back-to-back matches anywhere. Kudla is 7/2 @ bet365 for the upset.

Fucsovics vs Kudla match stats


  • Fucsovics won their only tour-level match in straight sets in Stuttgart last year
  • Kudla is 3-10 lifetime at tour-level on clay
  • Both players lost their opening match of the clay season

Fucsovics vs Kudla betting tips


I’d be shocked if Kudla even takes a set in this encounter. As mentioned, the American really struggles on clay and is coming off a loss to Tomic on the surface. That’s about as bad as it gets. Fucsovics has really improved his game over the last two seasons and really shouldn’t have any trouble in Barcelona. If the Hungarian can beat Kudla in straight sets on the American’s favourite surface of grass (Stuttgart last year), he surely should be able to get the job done here with relative ease.
