Bookmakers gave out approximately identical coefficients for the victory of both tennis players. The Italian representative defeated the Argentinean (6-1, 5-7, 6-4).
Last season Sony definitely surprised everybody, because he not only had a successful stretch of ground, but also fired multiple shots on fast surfaces, where he had previously lost to everyone. And what can we talk about if Lorenzo won his first ATP tournament on the grass. It should be noted that the tennis player stands out by his cannon feed, because even on the ground he can shoot more than 10 sights per match. In draws, the Italian acts exclusively first number and aggressively.
Dusan, as well as his future opponent, prefers to play on the courts with the clay surface. In the starting match of the current tournament, Lajovic defeated Marco Cecchinato in a three-set fight. The Serbian athlete had three breaks with the Italian and never lost the game on his serve. The tennis battle, which lasted 2 hours and 19 minutes, ended with the score (6-4, 6-7, 6-1) in favor of Dusan.
Lajovic stands out for his technical ability. After all, thanks to the one-handed backhand, the Serbian representative not only attacks, but also holds the ball in the court quite easily. In recent years, Dusan has been trying to improve his performance on fast surfaces. However, Dusan doesn’t have enough strength in kicks to finish quickly. In addition, the tennis player falls back too much in his games, as even the first ball is easily accepted by the opponents.
