Marco Cecchinato v Damir Dzumhur Head to Head
This will be a seventh tour-level meeting between the two, with Cecchinato leading 4-2. Both of Dzumhur’s wins have come on hard courts while Cecchinato is 4-0 on clay.
They also met twice at qualifying and lower level tournaments, with both winning one match each.
Cecchinato Breezes Past Bedene
He had never beaten Aljaz Bedene before this season, losing all seven of their matches across levels. Now suddenly Cecchinato is two from two against the Slovenian in 2021, with his most recent win coming in the first round in Umag on Tuesday.
Cecchinato didn’t face a break point in the match as he defeated the Slovenian 6-1, 6-4 in just 66 minutes.
The World No. 82 improved to 13-11 on clay this season, which includes a runner-up finish in Parma, where he lost the final to Sebastian Korda.
The 28-year-old is a former champion in Umag, having clinched the crown by beating Guido Pella the 2018.
Tuesday’s win improved Cecchinato to 6-3 in Umag, and the 2018 French Open semifinalist will now be hungry for more success in Croatia.
Dzhumur Knocks Out Horansky
Damir Dzhumur got his second tour-level win of the season on Tuesday when he defeated Slovakia’s Filip Horansky in the first round in Umag.
The 29-year-old Bosnia-Herzegovina player needed just an hour and 17 minutes to bet the qualifier 6-4, 6-3 and advance to the next round. His only other main draw win on the tour came against Kevin Anderson in the first round in Miami.
Broken once in the match on Tuesday, Dzhumur broke Horansky four times, won 71% first serve points and 42 percent return points.
A finalist at the Belgrade Challenger earlier this year, Dzhumur is a three-time champion on the tour from four finals, but has never featured in a title clash on clay.
Having never won against Cecchinato on the surface it will be interesting to see if he can give the Italian some fight this time around.
Cecchinato v Dzumhur Prediction and Tip
The Italian will be the favourite in this contest. Dzhumur tends to struggle on clay, while Cecchinato can barely play outside the surface. The Italian should wrap this one up in straight sets.
