At the moment, Borna Coric is one of the “dark horses” of this tournament, because this season there was no participation in other competitions of such a high class. Often these were simple Challengers, where there were enough opponents from the third and fourth hundred of the world tennis rating. How Borna Coric will behave in a match with a more serious opponent is not yet clear, because it is unlikely to be able to set your own pace and fully control the game, as was the case in all previous fights.
In previous seasons, stability was not enough for a successful performance, and now Borna Coric is demonstrating only a good first serve, but no skilled defense and first-class technical skills have been noticed so far. In addition, Borna Coric weakly plays near the net, and also often allows the loss of concentration. This tournament is home, so there is hope that Borna Coric will be more carefully prepared for the fight.
Coric fell into some kind of black streak that has been stretching since last season. In the last 11 games (taking into account the last year), the Croat wins the only once. It is possible that the old back injury that bothered him in the course of last season makes itself felt. It’s hard to say how Coric feels now, everything will be shown in the next match.
Thiago Moura Monteiro is too hot-tempered, which does not allow him to act stably on the court. In this match, you will again have to give vent to your emotions, as the opponent will have a serious, even better footwork. But, on the other hand, Thiago Monteiro acts confidently on the backline, so that shows a good level in the exchange of blows. Monteiro knows how to play in the hall on the hard surface of Thiago Monteiro, because if you take the last season, then there were seven such fights, of which six ended in wins.
Thiago Moura Monteiro has a powerful serve, and although it does not differ in speed on the court, it demonstrates the constant variability of shots, so it is extremely difficult to predict the direction of the ball. There is no problem with Thiago Monteiro’s motivation because although the tournament is not very significant, it is necessary to go as far as possible so as not to lose rating points.
Monteiro has already managed to test his strength on clay courts in the current season. Moreover, the Brazilian even won the tournament in Punta del Esta. In the final match, Monteiro in three sets defeated the Italian Marco Cecchinato (7-6, 6-7, 7-6). At the current tournament in Buenos Aires, Tiago has already held one match – in the first round of the competition, he defeated Jaume Munar (6-3, 6-3).
