Hall of Fame Open 2021: Jordan Thompson vs. Maxime Cressy Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2021 Hall of Fame Open as Jordan Thompson [7] takes on Maxime Cressy in the quarterfinals on Friday, July 16th, 2021.

Will Maxime Cressy follow up his stunner of a win to make the semifinals? Will Jordan Thompson prevail to make the semifinals? We’ll see lots of tactical play between these two on the grass. Who will move on to the semifinals at the 2021 Hall of Fame Open?

Maxime Cressy pulled off a big upset on Sam Querry, the number two seed. With solid serving numbers, and being able to convert ¾ break points, it was a very impressive display. In order to take out Thompson, though, who remains the favorite in this match despite Cressy’s win, he will need to do the same thing and more. Query was not playing at this best level, and he did have some luck to get through, I do believe that he has a great shot, though, as his game is perfect for grass with a big serve and lots of volleys. He will undoubtedly get opportunities, and he will need to maintain an aggressive style of play on every chance he gets to go ahead. I think he can do it, but it will be a tough task.

Jordan Thompson is coming into this match with the most one-sided win of the tournament in his last match, 6-0 6-2. Although his serving numbers weren’t too high up there, and I think in order to get past Cressy, he’ll really need to make sure he doesn’t drop serve, he will need to try and get through his service games quickly, moving Cressy around the court and making sure he can’t come into the net. If it goes to tiebreakers, which is very possible when playing someone like Maxime, Jordan will have to try and stay neutral and hope that Cressy won’t have perfect success off of his aggressive style of play. He is the favorite by ranking, and I think if they both played their best, Thompson would definitely come through, but there’s no guarantee of that happening so it’s tough to predict who will win this one.

Maxime Cressy and Jordan Thompson have never played before, with this being their first career meeting. They have pretty different styles of play, so it will make for an interesting match up, personally, I think Cressy has the game to be able to frustrate Thompson, I feel like he’ll get overwhelmed from the constant aggression and serve and volleying. Cressy will need to translate the aggressive display he puts on serve to his return games, and if he does that, I think he’ll be the one to make it through to the semifinals at the 2021 Hall of Fame Open.
