We aim for our third straight #BOTD as we head to ATP Newport for the opening round clash between Denis Kudla and Steve Johnson.
We had some success backing Kudla on the grass of Wimbledon over the last fortnight and we’ll be sticking with him to do some damage on the fast lawns of Newport here.
Kudla had a terrific grass court swing, winning 11 of his 14 matches on the surface.
He took out the seeded Alejandro Davidovich Fokina in the opening round at Wimbledon and defeated veteran Andreas Seppi in straight sets before pushing eventual champion Novak Djokovic in a tight three-setter.
Kudla has momentum on his side and lots of confidence, while he’s also won his opening round at Newport in five of his six main draw appearances.
By contrast, Johnson has had a disappointing season, losing seven of the 10 matches he’s played.
Two of those wins were some fortuitous five-set triumphs at the French Open, while he’s only played two matches on grass this season (compared to Kudla’s 14).
Kudla won the last meeting between the pair back at the 2018 Australian Open and his superior grass-court form gives him the edge here.
- Kudla has won 11 of his 14 matches on grass this season
- Johnson has lost seven of his 10 matches in 2021
- Kudla has won the opening round in five of his six main draw appearances in Newport
- Kudla won the last meeting between the pair in 2018
- Kudla has a winning percentage of 52 on grass (compared to 26 on clay and 28 on hard)
