Andrey Rublev meets Filip Krajinovic in the quarterfinals of the 2020 Rotterdam Open.
Andrey Rublev has played incredibly well since the start of 2020. The Russian has only lost 1 match out of his last 15 matches. Rublev is showing us that 2020 is going to be his year and that he can beat anyone on tour. Rublev is a real contender for the title here in Rotterdam and could achieve his 3rd title of the season if he keeps playing the way he does.
Filip Krajinovic put on a great performance in his hard-fought victory over Vasek Pospisil in the round of 16. Krajinovic is a consistent player, but sometimes he finds an extra level in his game which he seems to have found here in Rotterdam. Krajinovic is strong from the baseline and is able to finish points off early.
This will be the third meeting between the two players, with both players having won a match against each other in the past. Krajinovic beat Rublev in straight sets in 2017, however, Rublev destroyed Krajinovic 6-1/6-2 only a few months ago in the Davis Cup. Rublev is the more in form player and is the more talented, going on their prior match in the Davis Cup, this will end in a similar fashion.
Andrey Rublev to win.
