Can Edmund continue his hot streak

Sometimes it is just worth riding a player when they are on a hot streak. Edmund lifted the title in New York on Sunday, dropping only the one set in his five matches in the tournament.

Aside from a tetchy quarter final match, Edmund was in brilliant form throughout. He dominated his opponent in the final of New York superbly.

Can he keep the momentum going? His serve was on the money in the Big Apple and that’s a key component to his game. It means now that Edmund has a W7 L2 match record for 2020.

Edmund has won 85% of service games this year, and he has managed to save 70% of breakpoints faced this year as well.

Our betting prediction:
Edmund 2-1

There has been just one previous meeting between Edmund and Humbert. That was last year in Marrakech on clay. Edmund took a fairly routine victory in the match 6-3, 6-2 pounding out a massive 83% of 2nd serve points won.

Sometimes success can be a double-edged sword in that he won’t have much time between tournaments. But the 25-year-old is on his game right now.


Can French youngster handle Edmund’s serve?

21-year-old French player Ugo Humbert has lost three of his last four matches. He was in the New York Open event that Edmund just won and Humbert bowed out in his second match against Miomir Kecmanovic, who Edmund beat in the semi-finals.

Humbert did have a good start to the year, lifting the title at the ASB Classic in New Zealand.

This will be Humbert’s first appearance at Delray Beach. He is steadily on the rise in the rankings but he will be facing a tough opener in Florida against an in-form, confident player.
