TennisSection previews the 2023 Montpellier Open as Emil Ruusuvuori takes on Mikael Ymer in the Round of 32 on Wednesday, February 8, 2023.
Will Emil Ruusuvuori get the win? Will Mikael Ymer pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where we have a competitive rivalry of two youngsters facing off. Who will triumph and move through to the Round of 16 at the 2023 Montpellier Open?
Emil Ruusuvuori is on the rise, as is his opponent Mikael Ymer, it should be a high-quality affair consisting of big-hitting and flashy winners, and although Emil Ruusuvuori deserves to be the slight favorite here, Mikael Ymer is a really tough opponent on this type of court, and I don’t favor the Fin in these conditions. Let’s see if he can keep it tight here at the 2023 Montpellier Open.
Mikael Ymer is a dangerous force on this surface, and although Emil Ruusuvuori might be a little more developed as a player, Ymer knows what he’s doing and can explode at any moment. Let’s see if he can come out on top in this all-Scandinavian battle as two massive hitters and young talents clash for a spot in the Round of 16 of the 2023 Montpellier Open.
Emil Ruusuvuori and Mikael Ymer have met four times before, with the head to head being level at 2-2. Interestingly enough, Ruusuvuori won their first 2 meetings in 2021, both in 3 sets. Ymer took the next 2 matches in 2022 and 2023, both in 3 sets. Considering Ymer has gotten the better of him twice in a row, and the fact that I’d generally favor him on a quicker court forces me to give the edge to Ymer as he looks to move through to the last 16 at the 2023 Montpellier Open.
