The Serbian has yet to drop a set in the tournament so far, and he will look to continue his success against Krajinovic, who he knows fairly well, but hasn’t been able to find much success against.
As mentioned, these two players have played each other a total of two times on tour. But there are an additional four matches that were played at either qualifying, challenger or future matches back in 2017. They split that head-to-head at 2-2, with three of them being played on outdoor clay courts.
Filip Krajinovic vs Laslo Đere Head-to-Head Stats
Krajinovic will be riding a huge high after his quarterfinal win. If he is able to take his confidence and momentum into this match, while keeping calm and collected, he should be able to win.
He’s the favorite heading in, despite Đere having not dropped a set just yet. Đere just hasn’t been truly tested, and has had a fairly straightforward route to this point in the tournament so far. Krajinovic will definitely be his toughest opponent here to date.
I’m going to give Krajinovic the edge here against Đere. He leads their head-to-head, which includes a win on outdoor clay, and is coming off a big career win against Tsitsipas.
Best Bet: Krajinovic 2-0 (+175)
