Kamil Majchrzak v Dimitar Kuzmanov Head to Head
The pair have never played each other before. This will be the first match between the 25-year old Pole, and the Bulgarian, who is three years older.
Lucky Loser Twice Over Majchrzak
Majchrzak has been a lucky loser twice over in Bulgaria.
Having been beaten by Pedro Martinez of Spain in straight sets in qualifying, he still earned a place in the main draw in Sofia, when somebody else dropped out.
And then, to compound his good fortune, the withdrawal of his proposed opponent saw him gain a bye into the second round without lifting a racquet.
Now the Polish number two, although a long way behind compatriot Hubert Hurkasz in the world rankings, Majchrzak spends the majority of his time on the Challenger tour, where he has been in two finals this year, beaten on the grass of Nottingham in June, and last week, in Szczecin, losing on home soil on clay.
He was chosen to play for Poland at the Olympics, but lost in the first round and his most recent appearance on the senior tour also ended at the opening round stage. He came through qualifying to make the main draw of the US Open, but was then beaten by the Finn Emil Ruusuvouri, in four sets.
Bulgarian Wildcard Produces First Round Surprise
Kuzmanov had been given wildcards to his home event in each of the past five years, and had failed to win a single match in this tournament before.
However, he finally broke his duck on Tuesday, with a surprise win over the Italian teenager, Lorenzo Musetti, who hs been enjoying a fine year on tour, even if his best results have been confined to clay.
Kuzmanov began well with an early break, but it was soon back on serve, and after one more break apiece, it went to a tie-break which the Italian won easily.
The second set was dominated by serve to the extent that, despite both men earning break points, neither was able to convert them, meaning another tie-break.
And this time the Bulgarian proved to be the stronger player and was able to level proceedings.
Again, the early part of the third set was dominated by serve, but then Kuzmanov forced another break and was able to consolidate it and close out the match.
Majchrzak v Kuzmanov Prediction and Tip
With more than 100 places separating these tow on the world rankings. Majchrzak will start the clear favourite. Kuzmanov may have home advantage, but it took him six years to win his first match in this tournament and it would be expecting too much for him to earn another one so soon.
