Tallon Griekspoor vs. Constant Lestienne head to head
No previous matches have been played between these two at the highest level. They faced off at the Challenger circuit, with Griekspoor winning that match in 2020 on clay.
Griekspoor in Fine Fettle this season
He might have lost in the second round of the Doha Open last week but that defeat came from Andrey Rublev and it didn’t happen before Tallon Griekspoor almost knocked the Russian off his seat.
In the end, Griekspoor lost in the tiebreak of the final set, but not before frittering away three match points while serving for the match at 5-3.
This comes at a time when Griekspoor had won 11 games in the run-up to this season and suffered just two defeats before that heartbreaking loss.
These included a title win at the Pune Open, a third-round appearance at the Australian Open and, after completing it, a semi-finalist at the Rotterdam Open. Can he continue to improve his form and claim another win here in Dubai when he takes on the world no. 1 in the second round?

Lestienne fizzles out after the Auckland Open semifinals
After losing his opener at the Adelaide International, Lestienne’s first tournament of the season, he reached the semi-finals at the Auckland Open the following week.
He was forced to withdraw from that match due to fitness concerns and from that point on Lestienne’s form was not quite up to par.
At the Australian Open, he made it to the second round, but in the three tournaments he has competed in since then, opening-round losses have followed. Nikoloz Basilashvili fielded him in Montpellier, Holger Rune defeated him in Rotterdam and Alejandro Davidovich Fokina defeated Lestienne in Doha.
Can he shake it all off and try to get through here?
Griekspoor v Lestienne Prediction and Tip
This is a match between two players who are very different from each other in terms of form. Griekspoor is enjoying some of his best tennis results of his career, while Lestienne has yet to quite complete his participation in the main draw. Expect Griekspoor to win in straight sets.
The ATP Dubai Open 2023 will be played from February 27th to March 5th. Get all the latest tennis betting news here on our tennis betting blog. You can also get previews of the rest of the tennis matches here.
