Casper Ruud vs. Dusan Lajovic - 2/13/2020 Buenos Aires Open Tennis Pick, Odds, and Prediction
Thursday, February 13, 2020 at 12:00 PM (Buenos Aires)
Casper Ruud meets Dusan Lajovic in the quarterfinals of the 2020 Buenos Aires Open.
Casper Ruud booked his spot in the quarterfinals with a dominant performance in his prior match against Roberto Carballes Baena. Ruud only lost 1 game out of 13 beating the Spaniard 6-1/6-0. Ruud is one of the up and coming players who is lucky enough to sometimes train with Rafael Nadal. Ruud can become a challenger for these smaller tournaments because he has all the weapons needed to succeed.
Dusan Lajovic also came through to the quarterfinals in a straight sets victory. Lajovic has had a great start to 2020, with the Serb helping Team Serbia to win the inaugural ATP Cup. Lajovic is such a consistent player, he has a strong serve, and his one-handed backhand is up there with the best. Lajovic will be motivated to have as good a 2020 as he did in 2019.
This will be the first meeting between both players, and I think this will be a hard-fought match for both players. Of course Ruud seems to be more in form at the moment, but Lajovic is such a consistent player and has much more experience than his opponent. This will be a tight match, but expect Lajovic to come out victorious in the end.
Dusan Lajovic to win.
