Cincinnati Open 2021: Andrey Rublev vs. Marin Cilic Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2021 Cincinnati Open as Andrey Rublev takes on Marin Cilic in the Round of 32 on Wednesday, August 18th, 2021.

Will Marin Cilic get another solid victory against another Russian early on here at the 2021 Cincinnati Open? Will Andrey Rublev bounce back from that tough loss last week to John Isner at the 2021 Toronto Open? Both players will bring a lot to the table in this match, but only one can make his way to the Round of 16 of the 2021 Cincinnati Open. Who will it be?

Marin Cilic put on a solid performance in the Round of 64, beating the always tough Aslan Karatsev in straight sets 7-5/6-3. The match was hit with a rain delay after the first set, and Marin was able to get himself back into the form he was playing with at the beginning of the match. Marin is definitely finding his form again and when he is serving well, he will be more confident in his return game. However, Marin now meets Andrey Rublev who is coming in the 2021 Cincinnati Open ready to give it his best and build some momentum.

Andrey Rublev is looking to get back to winning ways and gain some momentum before the US Open here at the 2021 Cincinnati Open. Rublev lost last week in a tough match against John Isner and he was not happy with his game and the fact he was not returning as well as he would have liked. Andrey has been working a lot behind closed doors to get himself back to where he should be, and I am sure he will come out here very determined to make a statement against Marin Cilic at the 2021 Cincinnati Open.

Andrey Rublev and Marin Cilic have met 4 times before, with Andrey Rublev leading the head to head 3-1. Marin beat Rublev back in 2015, and since then, Rublev has won all of their matches in straight sets. I am not sure that this is going to be a straight sets win for Andrey, but I am sure Andrey will win it. Marin will keep things tight with his amazing serve, potentially getting a tiebreak under his belt. However, the power, speed, and stamina of Andrey Rublev will be too much for the Croatian in the end as he makes his way into the Round of 16 of the 2021 Cincinnati Open.
