Maden vs Cuevas (By: Iniestaone)
First round match from ATP Budapest between Maden (#109) and Cuevas (#73)
Here's another upset I am calling for Wednesday: Maden to defeat Cuevas
I think they've both had a great season so far, Maden is 20/10 and Cuevas is 17/9. Cuevas is coming off a challenger title win from Tunis which ended just two days ago so he has had a busy schedule which makes me think he won't be fully ready for this match and its possible that he withdraws to focus on Madrid, but should he play it then I think he will end up losing.
Maden has put in great performances this season, played two challenger finals and been very good in all of the matches i've seen him in. He has adapted well to the courts in Budapest after playing the qualifiers where he defeated Piros and Sinner. He is being too underrated here, he's facing a tired and drained Cuevas who has no points to defend in Budapest and I think its reasonable to assume that if Cuevas plays this one out he won't be as motivated as Maden will and that gap in motivation should be enough to cancel out the gap in quality between them.
