Sonego Has a Poor Record on Grass

Sonego has only ever won seven matches in grass in his career, but did win the 2019 Antalya Open, where his scalps included Pablo Carreno Busta and Miomir Kecmanovic.

That was an exception not the rule – in the other five grass court events in which he has competed, he has been beaten in the first round every time – that includes his two previous visits to Wimbledon.

He has just come off a successful European clay court season, where he won his second career title in Sardinia, and then got to the semi-finals of the Rome Masters,  although it did have a disappointing end, with a first round defeat to Lloyd Harris of South Africa at the French Open.

The good news is Sonego faces an opponent who hasn’t done too well on this surface himself.

Veteran Troicki Hoping for Some Respite

At his peak Troicki was a top 20 player, and appeared in 9 senior ATP finals, winning here of them.

Amongst those finals was a defeat on grass at the Stuttgart Open in 2015, when he was beaten by Rafael NadaL.

However, several years of poor performances and loss of form have seen his ranking plummet, and he was one of the players who caught Covid after the ill-fate Adria Exhibition tour last year.

He has not won a singles match in the main draw of a senior event since Pune in February last year, so it was something of a turn-up when he was named Serbian Davis Cup captain in December.

Having failed to qualify for the French Open, Troicki switched his attention to grass, but failed to qualify for the Challenger event in Nottingham.

However, he had better fortune at Queen’s where he beat first Lucas Pouille of France in three sets, and then Alejandro Tabilo of Chile to earn his place in the main draw.

Sonego v Troicki Prediction and Tip

Sonego has very little form on grass, except for that tournament win in Turkey, but he is playing a man without a win in the main draw of an ATP event for more than a year. It is hard to see Troicki’s run ending against the Italian.
