Soonwoo Kwon v Dusan Lajovic Head to Head
The pair have played each other once before, Kwon winning their round of 16 encounter in Acapulco last year in straight sets.
Kwon Goes Past Donskoy
The South Korean number one has not been in good form on an individual level since losing in the second round of Wimbledon, and it was only in Winston Salem where he went beyond the first round. That sequence included early defeats at the Olympics and the US Open.
However, he gained some confidence playing for his country in the Davis Cup, winning both his matches in their tie against New Zealand, and he carried that over to his first round match with the Russian Evgeny Domsky on Wednesday.
The first set went with serve until the eighth game when Kwon broke the Russian’s serve, closing out the set next game.
He then broke him again mid-way through the second set, and followed that up with another break as he completed a straightforward victory.
Can Lajovic Find Form in Kazakhstan?
Lajovic was given a bye in the first round in Nur-Sultan.
Both his career finals and his solitary win in Umag two years ago have come on clay, and that is the surface on which he has tended to have his best results, although he did start this year by getting to the fourth round of the Australian Open before losing to Alexander Zverev, his best ever showing in a Grand Slam.
He went on to go out of the French Open in the opening round and reached the second round of the US Open, losing to the German qualifier Peter Gojowczyk in New York.
Prior to that his best recent performance came in Toronto, where he got to the third round before losing in straight sets to the Norwegian Casper Ruud.
He has not played since that defeat at Flushing Meadows.
Kwon v Lajovic Prediction and Tip
Kwon has the benefit of recent matches under his belt and has won their one previous meeting, but, as the seed and higher ranked player, Lajovic should still have enough to win.
