At first glance, there is nothing incredible in the game of Krajinovic. After all, the Serb has a mediocre serve, in the rallies the player acts as the second number, because he doesn’t have strong blows and he makes many mistakes. But in recent years, Filip has definitely become an example for many, because he absolutely didn’t change anything in his game, but only improved all game aspects. All kinds of punches began to be used on the back line, so as not just to interrupt the ball, but to beat the opponents’ rhythm. Serb improved flow by the fact that it began to vary the direction of the ball corny.
Filip entrenched at a certain stable level, which allows him to reach the quarter finals almost every week, confidently holding on to the top 40 ranking. The Serb reached two semi-finals in a row at the Indore tournaments in Montpellier and Rotterdam, both times losing to future champion Gael Monfils.
Only closer to 30 years, Souza began to unfold on the tour. After all, the Portuguese suddenly improved results on quick coatings, where he performed even more confidently in moments than on profile soil. Joao doesn’t have powerful strikes in his arsenal, but he manages to move due to accuracy, as the Portuguese scatter balls along the lines and chases rivals all over the court. Last season, the tennis player even began to confidently serve and win easy points due to the first ball, which had never happened before. But only in the offseason, Joao broke his leg and practically didn’t train, so at the moment he is in search of his game and could lose to everyone.
Joao Sousa still doesn’t know the taste of win in 2020, although the calendar is already the end of February. He can correct this situation already today by a match against Filip Krajinovic, who, on the contrary, has been developing quite successfully for a year.
