Filip Krajinovic vs Jack Sock – ATP Paris: Filip Krajinovic, Serbian 25-year old tennis player, who is currently 75th on the ATP Rankings…
He is an athletic player who covers the court well, being very strong mentally and hitting intelligent strokes. He is defensive and is very fast, playing for the rallies.
Jack Sock is a North American tennis player who is 25 years old and ranked 22 at the ATP Rankings.
He has an hyper-aggressive style, more from the baseline, with an incredible forehand and a great serve. He prefers to play on hard courts and he likes to have control of the points.
Krajinovic is living a dream and the result he will get here will definitely “change” his lif, because, besides the points and the incredible rise he will get on the ATP Rankings, he will also get a lot of money.
If he wins he gets around 853.000€ and if he loses he gets 418.000€. Besides that, he will obviously win 1000 points if he wins the tournament or 600 if he loses on the final.
A player who is ranked 75 reaching a Masters’ final can only be very happy. Krajinovic is a player who enjoys rallies and has a pretty weak serve.
Still, he has been playing well, he is motivated and he also got some luck on the draw because he faced big servers who feel uncomfortable playing from the baseline.
Sock has been doing well. I even faded him but then I saw him beat Verdasco and then Benneteau in a way I didn’t expect.
His forehand is absolutely incredible, he is a quick player, capable of producing many “highlights” and he has always been able to get more than a dozen of aces per match.
Filip Krajinovic vs Jack Sock – ATP Paris:
Sincerely, I think that Filip doesn’t have many chances. Even if he’s able to dominate Sock (which I don’t think will happen) his clay style will be countered by the American.
Sock has more experience so he won’t be nervous. Krajinovic had never won a match at Masters level so obviously experience will play a huge part here.
He beat Isner much due to the lack of baseline game from the “giant” and honestly, it is all pointing towards a win for Sock.
He plays better and Krajinovic doesn’t have what it takes to cause him trouble, because he plays a rallies and clay game.
The Serbian’s anxiety, who already reached very far in this tournament, should be enough for Sock to beat him.
