Dusan Lajovic v Bernabe Zapata Miralles Head to Head
The two have never met before.
Lajovic Looking to Win a Second Title in Umag
He has blown hot and cold this year and an 11-18 record is a testament to that. However, a couple of good wins last week are an indication that Dusan Lajovic is bringing in decent form to defend his title in Umag.
The World No. 45 had won the title in 2019 by defeating Hungary’s Attila Balazs in the final. He was also a quarterfinalist in 2018 and has a decent 7-5 record in Umag.
The Serb, who looks more comfortable on clay than other surfaces, has had an ordinary season though, going 4-8 on his preferred surface.
With hopes of improving that record, the second seed, who received a first-round bye, will look to reach a third quarterfinal this season. Lajovic was in the last eight in Hamburg last week and had made it that far at Belgrade-2 previously.
Zapata Miralles Edges Out Cuevas
Spain’s Bernabe Zapata Miralles scored an impressive come-from-behind win over Uruguay’s Pablo Cuevas on Tuesday.
The World No. 121, who featured in two Challenger finals this year, winning in Heilbronn and finishing runner-up in Quimper-2, improved his season record to 4-7 overall and 3-3 on clay.
Having conceded the only break in the first set, Zapata Miralles broke Cuevas twice in the second and thrice in a nervy third, which saw a total of five breaks of serves.
The 24-year-old Spaniard wrapped up the two-hour-and-eight-minute contest 4-6, 6-2, 6-4. He had a total of 15 break point chances in the match and he took just five of them, but all at crucial junctures in the contest.
Lajovic v Zapata Miralles Prediction and Tip
The second seed is in decent touch and will be the favourite to advance. Expect Lajovic to win in straight sets.
