Christopher Eubanks vs Gregoire Barrere Match Preview
Two of the biggest underdogs are one match away from reaching the fourth round of the 2023 Miami Masters. Will it be Christopher Eubanks or Gregoire Barrere who makes it through?
Christopher Eubanks earned his first top 20 win of his career, by beating Borna Coric from a set and 2-0 down in teh second set to advance into the third round at the 2023 Miami Masters. Eubanks served impeccably throughout the match despite an underwhelming start. He won 11 service games to Coric’s nine, and better numbers overalls, 11 aces to 2, 66% first serves landed to Coric’s 60%. Remarkably, he also countered Coric, by posting healthy numbers behind the return. Eubanks won 42% and 37% behind Coric’s first and second serve respectively. He’s got a shot of reaching the fourth round in a Masters 1000 for the first time when he takes Gregoire Barrere.
Gregoire Barrere earned his very own giant-killing win on Saturday as he handed Cameron Norrie one of his worst losses in recent memory. It was a listless performance by the Briton who was on the court for 64 minutes, barely putting any offensive spark in his game. Barrere blasted 21 winners to Norrie’s six and broke the lefty three times in the match. He won 6-3, 6-2, and sets up a meeting against American qualifier Christopher Eubanks with a spot in the fourth round of the Miami Masters on the line.
Christopher Eubanks vs Gregoire Barrere Prediction and Pick
Christopher Eubanks and Gregoire Barrere have played once before at the US Open qualifying rounds last season,with Eubanks winning that one in three sets. Not a lot will change in terms of approaching this matchup. It is another high-stakes match and the bookies are really torn on these two. I mean it could really go either way here, but I think Barrere has a tiny edge here after his incredible performance against Norrie. He’s got a lot more upside in his game and multiple ways of finishing off points. That should see him through to the fourth round of the Miami Masters.
