1/16 final of Roland Garros. One of the earliest games of the day but definitely worth to watch. Serbian Dusan Lajovic faces up against German Alexander Zverev. Both players are showing great tennis at this tournament and you do not want to miss it. To have more insights on this ATP Dusan Lajovic vs Alexander Zverev match please check out the preview below.
Dusan Lajovic is 28 y.o. Serbian who is always the most dangerous on clay compared to any other grounds. He’s never been Top 10 ranked player or the most exciting player to watch but he is a consistent player who loves to play controlled, smart tennis with long rallies and that’s why it’s hard for some flashy players to play against him. Lajovic showed great tennis in the first two rounds as he beat Monteiro and Benchetrit in straight sets without even giving an opportunity to get back into the game. Tomorrow will be the first real test for Lajovic as he faces up against one of the most promising young players Alexander Zverev.
Lajovic dropped out of French Open in R64 last year and he’s already improved his previous result. We will see will he be able to go past Zverev tomorrow.
One of the most promising young players in today’s tennis. Only 22 years of age but considered one of the favorites in every tournament he plays. That’s an incredible achievement for such a young player. Zverev is completely opposite compared to Lajovic – he’s flashy, loves to attack, can play both solid serve&volley and backline game with no problems. A. Zverev was mostly criticized for not being consistent on biggest stages in ATP Masters and Grand Slams but it’s understandable given how young he is.
Zverev reached the quarter-final of French Open last year where he lost to Dominic Thiem who got to the final later on. Of course, Zverev would love to improve his last year’s result but Lajovic won’t make it easy for sure.
