Both players have similar statistics although the Argentinian knows how to convert his break point opportunities a bit more than Broady does. The Brit will need to increase his first serve percentage if he wants to win the match.

Playing styles and prediction

The Argentinian rose up the rankings earlier this year when he reached the Buenos Aires final where he lost to Diego Schwartzman in the final. Since then Cerundolo has found it hard to back up that week despite reaching the final round of Qualifying at Roland Garros and Wimbledon.

Cerundolo is unfamiliar on hard courts and that is something the Brit will look to take advantage of. The Argentinian will grind, neutralise points and ensure that Broady’s match is as difficult as possible. But there is never a better opportunity that Broady will have of winning a match at an Olympics then this one.

Prediction: Broady in three sets.
