Jannik Sinner will be looking for his first victory in three weeks when he takes on Christopher O’Connell in the Round of 16 of the Atlanta Open 2021 on Thursday.

After a comfortable run in the qualifiers with victories over Watanuki and Ofner, O’Connell scored his first win on the main draw two days ago thanks to a 2-1 success over Denis Kudla. The 27-year-old Aussie has enjoyed a decent run of form recently, including three victories in the Wimbledon 2021 qualifiers before losing in five sets against Gael Monfils in the opening round. Unfortunately, O’Connell’s record in the second-round matches on the main tour is poor as he lost his previous three appearances at this level.

Meanwhile, Sinner has not performed well of late, having lost his previous three consecutive matches. After losing in straight sets against Rafael Nadal at the French Open three weeks ago, the Italian star has suffered back-to-back defeats on grass courts in Queen’s and Wimbledon. However, Sinner has delivered some fantastic results on hard courts earlier this year, winning 12 of his 17 matches on this surface.

We fancy Jannik Sinner to get back to winning ways here, so our prediction is a 2-0 victory for the Italian at odds of 1/1 with Bet365.

O’Connell v Sinner is available to watch via a live stream online from approximately 6.30pm BST.
