Its the battle of the Serbians as Novak Djokovic meets Filip Krajinovic in their second match at the Adria Tour opening weekend. Will Krajinovic pull off his biggest upset, or will Djokovic win the match in classic Djoko style?
Filip Krajinovic has had a good start to 2020, reaching far in both the Marseille and the Rotterdam Open. Krajinovic fights for every point, and if you give him the opportunity to come forward and pounce, he will. Krajinovic has a lot of experience and he is going to need every single ounce of it in this second match as he meets Novak Djokovic.
Novak Djokovic has been superb this year, winning his 17th Grand Slam title in Australia and showing us that he is still at the top of his game. Djokovic will want to make sure he does not lose any momentum coming back into the tennis season and he has shown all over social media how hard he has been training every day. Djokovic is the favorite to win this tournament and it is not a shocker.
Shockingly, these two have only met once before, and Krajinovic won the match. They met in 2010 in Belgrade and Djokovic had to retire after losing the first set. Djokovic will not retire here and he is a thousand times better than he was in 2010. This match is extremely easy to call. Give me Djokovic.
