Kecmanovic vs Medvedev: prediction for the Roland Garros match
Miomir Kecmanovic is having probably the best season in his career and has risen to the 31st line in the ATP ranking. His best results were the semifinals in Munich and the quarterfinals in Miami and Indian Wells.In the first two rounds of the current Major, Kecmanovic confidently defeated Tomas Etcheverry(6-3, 7-5, 6-3) and Alexander Bublik (4-6, 7-5, 6-2, 6-1).
Everybody knows, how much Daniil Medvedev dislikes clay courts, but Roland Garros is one of the most important tournaments, and Medvedev wouldn't have missed it. It looks like he is in good shape - Medvedev defeated both his opponents in straight sets. First, he ousted Facundo Bagnis (6-2, 6-2, 6-2), and then prevailed over Laslo Djere (6-3, 6-4, 6-3).
In 3 of Medvedev's last 4 matches, fewer than 10 games were played in the first set.
No tie-breaks were played in 3 of Kecmanovic's last 5 matches.
Medvedev is taking this tournament seriously and is training even in rainy weather. With such attitude, the Russian athelete should be able to make a deep run at this major. We will be backing the favorite in this pair.
Our prediction — handicap (-2) to Medvedev
Kecmanovic is a difficult opponent and plays well on clay courts. We expect him to put up a good fight and at least win one set. Take the over here.
Second prediction — total over 36.5 games
