Indian Wells 2021: Andrey Rublev vs. Tommy Paul Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2021 Indian Wells Open as Andrey Rublev takes on Tommy Paul in the Round of 32 on Monday, October 11th, 2021.

Will Tommy Paul come out here and get a good win under his belt in front of the American crowd by beating a top 5 player? Will Andrey Rublev dominate this match as he would be expected to do when he is at his best? Both players have met before and put on entertaining encounters, but only one will make their way to the Round of 16 of the 2021 Indian Wells Open. Who will it be?

Tommy Paul cruised through his two matches here at Indian Wells, beating two experienced players in straight sets, Feliciano Lopez and Dusan Lajovic. Tommy is a good player overall, with great all round shots and is able to stay in long rallies. However, Tommy lacks consistency at times which allows him to lose to opponents who he should easily win against. Tommy will know that if he is able to hang into the long and draining rallies in his next match here at Indian Wells against Andrey Rublev he will keep things tight, but keeping things tight and winning are two different things.

Andrey Rublev dominated in his opening match against the Spaniard, Carlos Taberner, beating him in straight sets 6-3/6-4. Andrey Rublev will not be happy with the fact he did not make it to the Final last week at the San Diego Open and he will be determined to come out here in Indian Wells and make it as far as possible as his time to shine is here on the ATP Tour. In these flat hard court conditions, Andrey has a great game because he is able to hit so fast and move his opponents around so easily. Will he dominate or will an upset be on the cards as he now meets Tommy Paul?

Andrey Rublev and Tommy Paul have met 3 times before, with Andrey Rublev leading the head to head 3-0. They have always played tight matches, and they have mostly met on clay where Tommy was able to steal a set twice. Here on hard courts I do expect a tight match because Tommy is playing at home, but I think the fact that the play is faster will allow Rublev to catch Tommy Paul out more often than he can on clay. Andrey is great at changing direction, and with fast conditions, Tommy will have to be at his best if he is to return those fast balls here at Indian Wells.
