1/8 finals of an ATP 500 tournament at Hamburg, Germany (clay). Two very good clay ground players will face off against each other tomorrow. To have more insights on this ATP Filip Krajinovic vs Martin Klizan match please check out the preview below.
Filip is 27 years old Serbian, who is currently being ranked 58th overall. He’s made the best accomplishment last season after reaching the 26th spot. That was career-high for him, but due to some injuries that occurred after that Krajinovic has drooped out of Top100. He’s getting back on track this season and suddenly became a player who has already won 34 out of 46 matches played this season. Krajinovic reached the final at Budapest, where he lost to Berrettini and 3rd round of French Open, where he dropped out against Tsitsipas. These are the only higher-ranked tournaments Krajinovic has played on this season on clay, but having an 18/4 record on the ground so far is definitely a good result. This tournament is a great opportunity for a Serbian to really show that he’s getting back to his best shape and take some ranking points back.
Klizan is a 30 years old Slovakian, who is currently ranked 62nd overall. Klizan has made a name on clay ground especially by having around 65% win rate on this ground. He’s also had one of the best seasons of his career last year by winning 34 out of 46 matches played on clay and 57 out of 77 overall. This year is looking completely different as Slovakian has already lost 18 out of 32 matches and doesn’t look like anything he used to be last season. Only yesterday, after winning against Altmaier, Klizan has broken the losing streak of 4 matches. He hasn’t mentioned any injuries or other stuff that is having an impact on his game, but it’s simply just his bad form that needs to be improved in order to perform better.
