Andrey Rublev v Filip Krajinovic Head to Head
The players have met three times with Krajinovic leading 2-1. Their most recent meeting was earlier this month, in the quarter-finals at the Rotterdam ATP 500, with Krajinovic winning in straight sets.
Rublev Hoping For Another Deep Run
Young Russian Andrey Rublev returned to the tour in the latter part of 2019, after a year full of injuries and performed well to win the Kremlin Cup as well as register wins against some of the top names on the tour including Roger Federer, Stanislas Wawrinka , Dominic Thiem and others.
2020 got off to an excellent start for Rublev, who won the Qatar Open and Adelaide International in early-mid January. The young Russian broke into the top 20, and arrived in Melbourne for the Australian Open high on confidence.
A fourth round loss to Alexander Zverev may have been below Rublev’s expectations, and after a quarter-final loss to Krajinovic in Rotterdam, he will be looking to return to his best form this week here in Dubai.
The Russian began his Dubai campaign with a straight sets win over Italian Lorenzo Musetti.
Krajinovic Looking For Another Win Against Rublev
Serbian Filip Krajinovic has been a force to reckon with on the indoor hard courts, evidenced no better than his run to the finals of the Masters 1000 in Paris in 2017.
Although currently ranked just within the top 50 in the world, he was ranked as high as number 26 two season ago and is very capable of pushing the best in the sport.
It has been a busy year of tennis for the Serb already. After being a quarter-finalist in Doha, he was eliminated in the second round of the Australian Open by none other than Roger Federer.
Krajinovic performed well thereafter at both Montpellier and Rotterdam, and lost to Gael Monfils in both tournaments in the quarters and semis respectively. Monfils went on to win the title on both occasions.
After taking a week off from the Marseille Open, he is back in Dubai this week and prevailed in his opener in a tricky three set match against Joao Sousa of Portugal.
