Casper has a powerful feed, which is still required to improve, as long as it feeds exclusively into the body, which is not so effective.

Lajovic played great on hard at the beginning of the season. At the ATP Cup, Dusan won four times in six games, thereby helping the Serbian national team win this tournament. On Australian, Open Lajovic managed to get to the third round, where he lost to Diego Schwartzman in two games (2-6, 3-6, 6-7).

Lajovic is trying to improve the results on fast coatings, but so far has managed to do this with varying success. If somewhere it turns out to get into the final stages, then only at small ATP 250-500, where there is no serious competition. Dusan stands out for its variable one-handed backhand, due to which it’s not only able to quickly complete the draws, but also keep the ball in court. At the moment, the player is close to the peak of form, he occupies the highest positions in the ranking for his career and continues to rapidly add.
