Filip Krajinovic v Feliciano Lopez Head to Head
The pair have met once before, and that was in the second round of the Beijing Open in 2018, Krajinovic winning that match in straight sets.
Krajinovic Gave Djokovic a Run in Vienna
Although Krajinovic prefers to play on hard courts, he has not won a match since losing to Novak Djokovic in the third round of the Rome Masters.
He was beaten in the first round of the French Open by compatriot Nikola Milojevic, and again in the first round of Cologne by the American Steve Johnson in three sets.
In Vienna last week, he had the misfortune of being drawn against Djokovic again the first-round but, although he lost, gave a good account of himself against his fellow Serb. He actually broke the Djokovic serve in the first set twice, but also dropped his own on two occasions resulting in a tie-break. He went on to force a set point but could not convert it, and Djokovic took advantage.
Two more service breaks in the second set allowed the world number one to close out the match. Can he carry that confidence into his opener in Paris here?
Lopez Continues to Grind Away
At 39 years of age, Lopez is now one of the old men of the tour, but he still performs at a high level, and his service remains a potent weapon.
His best recent result was a trip to the third-round on the clay of Kitzbuhel, but he then suffered back-to-back first round exits at the French Open and in St. Petersburg.
If he was low in confidence, he did not show it in the first-round of the European Open, beating Tommy Paul, the world 59, in straight sets.
Lopez did not start well, dropping his first serve of the match. he broke back only for de Minaur to immediately break back once more, and going on to take the set.
It was much easier for the Australian in the second set, who broke the Spaniard twice more for a comparatively easy victory.
Krajinovic v Lopez Prediction and Tip
Krajinovic has not been in the best of form recently. However, he has won their only previous match, is the higher ranked of the pair, and has eleven years of fresher legs on his veteran opponent.
Tip: Krajinovic to win: 4/6 (bet365)
