Croatian tennis player, Borna Coric has made it into the second round of the 2019 ATP Monte Carlo Open. At this stage of the tournament, Borna Coric will play against Jaume Munar from Spain.
Borna Coric won his previous match in 3 sets. It was a close match for Coric who won the opening and final set but lost the middle set. During the win, Borna Coric received serve well as the Croatian won 62% of his receiving points. Borna Coric won 4 return games and 14 service games to win the overall match. Leading up to this tournament, Borna Coric has been in decent form. Coric made the quarterfinals of the Miami Open and the semifinals of the Dubai Tennis Championships.
On the other side of the coin, Jaume Munar had a dominant win as he won his previous match in straight sets. During the win, Jaume Munar only lost 3 games in the entire match. Jaume Munar won 75% of his receiving games and 86% of his service games to win his opening round match win ease. Jaume Munar last played at the Grand Prix Hassan II event in Morocco where the Spaniard made the quarterfinals. During the campaign, Munar beat the likes of Alexander Zverev.
This will be the first time that Borna Coric and Jaume Munar will be playing each other at an ATP event.
Both Jaume Munar and Borna Coric have been in exceptional form and that should ensure we can witness a high-class tennis match. Munar looks very confident following his win over Zverev but I see the Spaniard losing this match. Borna Coric is a very strong clay-court player and the Croatian looks in very good form. Coric is the number 8 seed at this tournament and I see him winning this match.
