Sebastian Baez vs. Filip Krajinovic Prediction
Sebastian Baez has been an absolute clay monster this year. He currently holds an impressive 26-10 record on clay and claimed his first ATP Tour win at the Estoril Open this year. He battled Frances Tiafoe in the finals, showing off a dominant performance, winning in two sets, 6-3 and 6-2. Baez made his second final appearance last week in the Bastad Open. He looked amazing once again on clay, beating down some top-notch competition, including Fognini, Fokina, Thiem, and the No. 8 player in the world, Andrey Rublev. But, as good as he looked, Baez fell just short of his second title. This could have been due to exhaustion, but I don't want to take anything away from Francisco Cerundolo. Cerundolo claimed his first title on the ATP Tour and beat Baez in two sets, 7-6 and 6-2.
A short rest brings Sebastian Baez back at it this week in a matchup against Filip Krajinovic. These two have zero history between them but I will be fading Krajinovic this week. This is Krajinovic's first match back on clay since losing to FAA in May. The transition from grass to clay is always the toughest and I expect Krajinovic to be a little rusty. I expect Baez to take advantage of the transition and make another deep run in the Hamburg European Open. I will be locking in Sebastian Baez on the alternate game spread tomorrow so grab those dancing shoes and meet me on the floor!
