Match Predict – Handicap (-2) for Carreno Busta

They played two matches on clay. Both matches were won by Carreno Busta. Karen has not been impressive lately. We think it will be very difficult for him to succeed.

Total Games – Under 23.5

The last four head-to-head meetings between the tennis players have ended in two sets. History is likely to repeat itself.

Preliminary review and match prediction for Pablo Carreno Busta vs Karen Khachanov 

Pablo Carreno Busta:

Carreno Busta quietly beat Federico Delbonis (6-3, 6-2) in the first round, allowing only five games.

Meanwhile, in Madrid, Pablo lost his opening match to Botic van de Zandschulp (7-6, 6-7, 3-6. The Spaniard had three match points in the second set, but his opponent pulled off an almost heroic comeback.

Interestingly, this is not the first time this season that Carreno Busta has been in a similar situation when he was one point away from winning but ended up losing. It was the same at the Masters in Indian Wells and Miami.

However, Carreno Busta also had some good moments. For example, at a tournament in Barcelona he had to play two matches on the same day (the schedule was displaced by the weather). In the first he beat Lorenzo Sonego (6-2, 5-7, 6-2) and in the second Casper Ruud (4-6, 7-6, 6-3), spending a total of almost six hours on the court.

In the deciding match in Barcelona, Carreno Busta lost to Carlos Alcaraz Garfia (3-6, 2-6).

Carreno Busta’s best result in Rome remains a quarter-final appearance in 2018.

Karen Khachanov:

Khachanov started the Rome tournament with a victory over Giulio Zeppieri (6-3, 6-4). Karen, of course, knows how to surprise, but hardly anyone would have understood if he had lost to an Italian from the third hundred rankings. In general, Khachanov started confidently, that’s a fact.

However, on the whole, in terms of his spring season, the Russian has had a poor start so far. The only exception was the tournament in Belgrade. Khachanov reached the semi-finals where he lost to Novak Djokovic (6-4, 1-6, 2-6). However, he even managed to win a set against the Serb.

At the Monte Carlo Masters, Karen lost straight away to Diego Schwartzman (7-6, 3-6, 3-6). In Madrid, he unexpectedly lost in the first round to Lucas Pouille (3-6, 4-6).

In 2018, 2020 and 2021 seasons, Khachanov has not won a match in Rome.

Safe Bets

In Karen’s last three matches, less than 9.5 games have been played in the first set. We offer to bet on “1st Set Games – Under 9.5” with the odds of 1.91.
