TennisSection previews the 2021 Davis Cup Finals as Elias Ymer takes on Brayden Schnur in the Round Robin stage on Thursday, November 25th, 2021.
Will Brayden Schnur start the day off for Team Canada with a solid win and put Team Sweden in a tough position for the rest of the day? Will Elias Ymer show us that he is underrated and he is able to play some strong tennis in these indoor hard court conditions? Both players are very low ranked and will want to use this occasion at the 2021 Davis Cup Finals to show us their game, but only one will win this opening match. Who will it be?
Brayden Schnur is not a very well known player on the ATP Tour, mainly focusing on the Challenger Tour and futures tournaments where he can actually compete on a weekly basis. This year with the 3 opportunities to play in main draws of tournaments on the ATP Tour, Brayden Schnur lost all 3 opening matches. This does not mean he is not a strong player who can hurt opponents. However, with his lack of experience and his lack of success, can he beat a player who is slightly more experienced than him here at the 2021 Davis Cup Finals in Elias Ymer?
Elias Ymer will want to come out here and show us that he should be known just as much as his brother on the ATP Tour. Elias has got a fair bit of experience on both the ATP and Challenger Tour, and he has represented Team Sweden many times before in the Davis Cup. With this in mind, he will know that he has the easier of opponents on Thursday in the Singles so he will want to ensure he can get a strong start and if push comes to shove, the doubles will decide it at the end of the day. Will Elias come out here and show us that he is underrated as he wants to beat Brayden Schnur?
Elias Ymer and Brayden Schnur have met 2 times before, in the Challenger Tour, with the head to head tied at 1-1. They have not met in 3 years, but their matches before that had been very tight. When we look at their respective careers for now, it is no comparison as Elias has won more matches on both the ATP and Challenger Tour, and knows how to play in these conditions with a high number of fans in the stands. Brayden is a good player with powerful shots, but the occasion might get to him in the end, allowing Team Sweden to snatch an early win in this Sweden vs Canada side of the draw at the 2021 Davis Cup Finals.
