Filip Krajinovic v Kamil Majchrzak Head to Head
37th-ranked Filip Krajinovic has never played Kamil Majchrzak before this.
Krajinovic Defeats Countryman Djere
Filip Krajinovic came out on top in an all-Serbian clash in the Round of 16 of the Sofia Open. The experienced 29-year-old took care of his countryman Laslo Djere, winning 6-3 6-0 – easily his best match of the season.
Considering that Djere had built some confidence on the indoor hard courts in Nur Sultan this past week (reaching the last eight), Krajinovic’s comprehensive win on Thursday came a bit as a shock.
Krajinovic produced a carbon copy of the result he mastered in the opening round over Alexander Lazarov in which he also dropped three games. He put Djere under immense pressure, and read his second serve like a book.
He fashioned eight breakpoints behind his compatriot’s serve in the opening set, and crucially converted the one that mattered towards the tail end of the set. In the second set, it was one-way traffic as Krajinovic stamped his authority racking up six straight games for the win.
Maiden Quarterfinal For Poland’s No. 2
He may be a long way off from catching up to Hurbert Hurkacz, but Kamil Majchrzak has shown a glimpse of his potential at this week’s Sofia Open albeit in a peculiar way.
Majchrzak is an accomplished player on the ATP’s second tier, winning three Challenger titles. But aside from breaking the Top 100 in the past, this week’s breakthrough has come under the unlikeliest of circumstances.
After losing to Pedro Martinez in the final round of qualifying last weekend, Majchrzak earned his berth in the main draw as a lucky loser. And then his projected first-round opponent pulled out, meaning he only picked up a racket on Thursday. And he did not disappoint. He took down the Bulgarian wild card Dimitar Kuzmanov in straight sets for a straight ticket to his maiden ATP quarterfinal.
Kuzmanov, despite his world ranking of No. 226, had stunned Lorenzo Musetti a day before. He was no slouch for Majchrzak as both players wanted to lock their places in the last eight. Ultimately though, it was the Pole’s tactical nous and vast experience which proved the determining factor – converting five out of a whopping 17 breakpoint chances.
Krajinovic v Majchrzak Prediction and Tip
Majchrzak has benefitted from such a huge slice of good fortune to reach this stage. But Krajinovic has looked in fine fettle this week. It is hard to look past the Serbian World No. 37 in this one.
