1/16 final of Roland Garros and a great match between 6th in the world Stefanos Tsitsipas against 60th Filip Krajinovic. The game should be very interesting as both players are showing their best tennis this year. To have more insights on this ATP match between Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Filip Krajinovic please check out our preview below.
A lot has been written about this young Greek, who is playing very controlled, aggressive and smart tennis being only 20 years old. Although, the most impressive thing about Tsitsipas is his consistency. Even though he is only 20 years of age he rarely loses against lower ranked players. Moreover, Stefanos doesn’t give any free points to whoever he plays against. The Greek has played 19 matches on clay this season and lost only 4! Nadal, Djokovic, Struff, and Medvedev were the only players who beat Tsitsipas on clay this season and that’s really impressive.
Stefanos had no problems in the first round of French Open by beating Marterer in straight sets and only gave a one set away to Delien. In addition, Tsitsipas lost to Thiem last year in Roland Garros in R64. But if he keeps showing us this incredible form we might see him fighting for the title this season.
Filip Krajinovic is a 27 y. o. Serbian who is currently playing the tennis of his life. Even though he played most of his game this season at ATP250 or lower ranked tournaments 17 wins out of 19 is still impressive. The question for him was how will he be able to adapt his play style to biggest tournaments but the start of French Open showed that he is ready for the test.
He’s beaten Tiafoe and Carballes Baena in first two rounds by 3 sets to 2 in both of these matches. Despite both matches being close Krajinovic seemed to be in control for the most them and won for a good reason. Tomorrow will be a real test for him. We will have to see what Serbian is ready to show for us.
