In Rotterdam, Rublev failed to cope with Krajinovic. As Andrey didn’t try, he didn’t succeed in replaying the Serb (4-6, 6-7). Now the Russian got a great opportunity to get even for that loss. He is in good shape, as in the previous match he easily beat Lorenzo Musetti (6-4, 6-4).
In Dubai, Rublev spoke only once. It was back in 2017. But then he failed to qualify.
Andrey Rublev returned to open hard after playing in the halls of Rotterdam and is surely eager to repeat the successes of the January period, when in similar conditions he celebrated a triumph twice in a row and played well at AO. The start in Dubai was not easy and not difficult at the same time.
Krajinovic looks good lately. At a tournament in Montpellier, the Serb reached the semifinals. Later, Filip achieved the same result in Rotterdam. In both cases, he was stopped by Gael Monfils. The representative of Serbia fought to the last, but failed to cope with the Frenchman. In the first match, he lost with a score of (2-6, 6-7), and in the second (4-6, 6-7).
Two years ago, Krajinovic successfully performed at this tournament. Then he reached the semifinals here.
