Filip Krajinovic v Nikola Milojevic Head to Head
This will be the first meeting between the two Serbian players.
Krajinovic’s Best Results Have Come on Clay
Krajinovic is currently the third Serb player to be ranked in the top 30 in the world after Novak Djokovic and Dusan Lajovic.
Despite this, he has yet to win a senior ATP title, but has won ten tournaments on the Challenger tour, most recently in Heilbronn Neckarcup, Germany, last year.
All of his Challenger finals have been on clay – his preference for that surface has been a consistent theme throughout his career.
This will be his fourth time in the main draw in Paris, He lost in the first round in 2012, and again three years later, but last year, he got to the third round before losing to Stefanos Tsitsipas in four sets.
Most recently in Rome, he got to the third round of the Masters, beating Felix Auger-Aliassime along the way, but was then beaten by Djokovic.
Milojevic Enters Maiden Grand Slam Main Draw
A former junior number one ranked player, Milojevic is in the main draw of a Grand Slam event for the first time in his career. He has got here by beating Ito Tatsuma of Japan, and then Yannick Maden of Germany, rounding things off with a victory over Leonardo Mayer of Argentina, all in three sets.
He has very little experience on the senior ATP tour, spending most of his time on the junior tours where he has achieved a fair degree of success, appearing in 29 finals, and winning 14 of them.
In 2018, he won his first Challenger title in Uzbekistan, and followed that up by winning the tournament in Liberec in the Czech Republic on clay last August.
He made his Davis Cup debut in the doubles in 2018.
Krajinovic v Milojevic Prediction and Tip
Although Milojevic has done well even to reach this stage of a Grand Slam for the first time in his career, there is little evidence to suggest that he will pose a significant challenge to his Serbian rival.
Tip: Krajinovic to win in three sets: 8/13 (bet365)
