Dennis Novak vs. Kevin Anderson – Prediction – ATP Vienna (Austria) 26.10.2020

H2H: Dennis Novak v Kevin Anderson – comparison.

Kevin Anderson is by far the better player of these two, especially on indoor hard courts, but his recent fitness struggles should give the Austrian a lot of encouragement heading into this clash.

Dennis Novak has been awarded a main draw wildcard by ATP Vienna once again, and he would be hoping to justify the selection by putting up a good show. He previously entered the main draw of this tournament with a wildcard in 2015, 2018, and 2019 but could win only one set against Gael Monfils in 2019. The 27-year-old Austrian made his mark in the main draw of this Austrian indoor hard court event in 2017 when he successfully made his way through the qualifying stages and got the better of Thomas Fabbiano in the first round before playing out three tiebreakers against Kyle Edmund in the second round, 6-7 7-6 6-7. Unlike in the past, Dennis Novak would be quite confident of doing well in Vienna this week as he recently made his maiden quarterfinal appearance on the main tour in an indoor hard court event in Cologne a couple of weeks ago, defeating Jordan Thompson and Benoit Paire in straight sets.

While Dennis Novak has won 29 matches from 49 outings at all levels so far in 2020, his opponent Kevin Anderson has played only 14 matches in these ten months and lost eight of them.In fact, the big-serving South African could play only 20 matches in 2019 as he was forced to shut down his season early after Wimbledon due to injury. Returning from the injury break earlier this season, former world #5 Kevin Anderson hasn’t looked entirely convincing, and he went through a four-match losing streak between Cincinnati Masters and Rome Masters. The 2018 Champion of ATP Vienna, Kevin Anderson has competed here five times in the past, and he either failed in the first round (x2) or reached at least the quarterfinals (x3).
