Atmane hit 10 aces and 7 double faults and averaged 76% of points on first serve and 57% of points on second serve. He took 4 break points from both players while only giving 3 to Mayot.

Eubanks vs Atmane: Head-to-Head 

Terence Atmane and Chris Eubanks have never played against each other on the ATP Tour. The two will have a first-ever match in their career, which will have the added difficulty of playing on a clay court. Those in the stands will also experience the two hard court specialists navigating around each other’s strategy on a much slower surface.

Prediction: Eubanks to move ahead in Rome

Chris Eubanks has not managed to make it past his first appearance in seven tournaments this year. The American player is not able to show the form that helped him climb to the top 50 so far. However, his opponent has struggled greatly in main draws. He has managed to show his skills in the qualifiers, but the mental pressure of main draws has held him back.

Terence Atmane’s serve has shown more promise than Eubanks’, which can be a weapon against the American star. Furthermore, Atmane has almost 4 times as many wins as Eubanks on clay, which can help his form on the court. However, the final result will depend on their form when going to Rome. The 28-year-old American will win his fourth match this year, but his French opponent has the chance of attaining his first main draw victory this season.
