Within the framework of the ATP Cup, on January 3, Karen Khachanov will meet with Stefano Travaglia. We offer a forecast for this fight.
Khachanov at a recent exhibition tournament in Abu Dhabi showed that he is in good shape. There, the Russian came out in his strength – defeated Hyun Jong (7-6, 6-4), lost to Rafael Nadal (1-6, 3-6) and Novak Djokovic (5-7, 3-6). It turned out a kind of preparation for the new season, where the first and second racket of the world acted as Karen’s sparring partners.
Travaglia is ranked 84th in the global ATP ranking. The profile coating of the Italian tennis player is soil. Last season, it was on this surface that Stefano won two trophies. But do not exaggerate the achievements of Travaglia, since both victories were obtained on the Challengers. The Italian is trying to avoid major tournaments because his level does not allow him to fight on equal terms with more eminent opponents.
