Bedene doesn’t betray himself, because every season he spends jerky. At first it fails in a series of important tournaments, and then at the most unexpected moment it shoots and scores points. For example, this season he failed every tournament except Rotterdam, where he sensationally defeated Peer and Tsitsipas. And there is nothing strange in this, since Aljaz is really capable of competing at the highest level. Bedene builds his game on counterattacks, because he emphasizes the high speed of movement on the court and the ability to get the most difficult balls.
Aljaz is a medium-sized player in all tournaments of the Grand Slam series, except for the Australian one, reaching a maximum of round 3. The ex-43rd racket of the world didn’t win serious trophies during his career, earning about $ 3.9 million in prize money. In the hall, he won 68 matches out of 108 possible.
This season, the Briton reached the quarter finals at tournaments in Doha and Rotterdam as much as possible. Whereas in Adelaide, Melbourne and Montpellier he had to retire at an even earlier stage.
Khachanov’s game is completely dependent on his submission. After all, if a Russian regularly passes the first goal, then he is able to dominate the court and lead it. But only he has to fight on the back line, then often it all ends with a huge number of unforced errors. If from forehand a player confidently not only holds the ball, but also aggravates, from the backhand every third hit into the net or out.
Khachanov already has the Roland Garros quarterfinal last year. The ex-8th racket of the world in its career has won 4 serious competitions, earning about 8.2 million dollars in prize money. In the hall, he won 87 matches out of 143.
The Russian began his season with exhibition matches in Abu Dhabi, where he managed to beat Chon, but lost to Nadal and Djokovic. Next was the ATP Cup, according to the results of which Karen won in 4 matches out of 5 possible. In Auckland and Rotterdam, Khachanov didn’t manage to stay for a long time, but in Melbourne he lost only in the 3rd round. So far, I can say that Medvedev and Rublev.
