Nikoloz Basilashvili v Laslo Djere Head to Head
Since playing in their first match in the 2015 French Open qualifiers, there have been four further meetings between these two players and Djere has a 3-1 lead on head to head. Their most recent meeting came at the 2021 Cagliari Open where Djere won that semifinal 6-2, 6-0.
All of these matches came on clay.
Basilashvili Yet to Take to Court
Having won the title in Hamburg on two previous occasions, Basilashvili will take to court for the first time in this quarterfinal this edition.
The inconsistent Basilashvili, who has dished out some extreme showing this season, including two titles and a plethora of opening round defeats, had a first round bye here. And that was followed by a walkover from his second round opponent Sebastian Baez who couldn’t even start the encounter because of fitness concerns.
What that means is Basilashvili is yet to play a match on clay since the first week of June when he lost in the French Open second round.
He also enters this tournament on the back of a first round defeat at Wimbledon and a semifinal at Halle, both on grass.
Djere Breaks into No Sweat against Seyboth Wild
It wasn’t as if Thiago Seyboth Wild had come into the tournament with any kind of form, having not won any main draw matches since the Santiago Open victory last season.
However a first round win here for the clay court specialist might have made things more difficult for Djere had it not been for the clinical manner of his own play in their second round meeting.
Djere carved out a 7-6 (1), 6-1 victory in their second round encounter in a match lasting hour and 48 minutes, and it was only in the initial part of the first set that the Serb found the going any tough.
He was broken in the third game but that proved to be the only time Djere faced that issue as he broke right back. The set went into the tie-breaker after Djere missed a set-point but soon finished it off 7-1 in the tie-breaker before easing past his opponent in the second set.
A tougher match against a well-rested Basilashvili follows soon after.
Basilashvili v Djere Prediction and Tip
This is a tough one to call what with the rested but potentially rusty Basilashvili at one end and a fighting and in-form Djere on the other. We could see a keen tussle that goes the distance.
