Laslo Djere – Miomir Kecmanovic Match Prediction | 26-08-2019 15:00

On the other side of the coin, Laslo Dere also won his previous match in straight sets. Dere has been in very good form over the past few weeks as he made the semifinal of the ATP Brasil Open and won the ATP Rio Open. With such a strong run of form heading into this match, Laslo Dere will be very tough to beat. It was a simple victory for Dere as he won 80% of his service games while breaking his opponents serve on 4 occasions.

Djeres form, however, isnt much better, wit the Serbian having suffered four losses in his last five matches since his amazing run to the title in Rio. That said, Djere illustrated in Brazil what hes capable of on the clay, with his two-hander a particularly impressive shot. It will need to be to overcome Gulbis backhand, also a dangerous weapon, but Djere should be the more confident of the two men coming into this one, and rightly so.

Dzumhur, on the other hand, retired during his first-round match and question marks remain over his fitness. However, the Frenchman does have the quality to make life difficult for almost any opponent thanks to his superb touch at the net. If he is healthy, then the man from Bosnia should have a good chance of pulling out what would be a much-needed win, with his defensive style likely to grind Herbert down in the long run. And without knowing where Dzumhurs game is at physically, it is hard to back him. To the surprise of many, Herbert had a solid run to the third round last week at the Monte Carlo Masters, despite having traditionally struggled to find his best tennis on the clay.

But nonetheless, this seems like the perfect first-round match for the Serbian to use to ease himself into the week. Expect him to have too much for the unheralded Hungarian. It certainly seems like a big ask for local wildcard Valkusz, ranked 323rd in the world. It may count in his favour that Lajovic is likely to be feeling the effects, mental and physical, of his impressive run in Monte Carlo.

Though he came up just short in the final against Fabio Fognini, losing 3-6 4-6, he showed what hes capable of when he plays with conviction and could well be a difficult man to stop in Hungary. Surprise Monte Carlo finalist Lajovic will surely be hoping to continue to play at the level he showed in the Principality, where he stunned David Goffin, Indian Wells champion Dominic Thiem and Daniil Medvedev, who was fresh off an upset win over world #1 Novak Djokovic.

But who will come through? Nonetheless, Tuesday promises plenty of exciting clay-court action. Day two of the Hungarian Open features a number of Serbians looking to continue impressive starts to the season with a deep run in Budapest. One player who might have had high hopes of success in Hungary is Marco Cecchinato, but unfortunately injury has forced the defending champion to withdraw.

This will be a tougher match for Miomir Kecmanovi and it may be difficult for the Serb to adjust to this situation as he is more commonly seen in Challenger tournaments rather than ATP events. It was a dominant display by Miomir Kecmanovi as he impressed with his serving. Miomir Kecmanovi won his previous match in straight sets as he beat Maximilian Marterer from Germany. During the win, Kecmanovi won 80% of his service points which allowed him to win all of his service game. In addition to his serving, Miomir Kecmanovi also returned serve well as he broke his opponents serve on 3 occasions.
