Ivo Karlovic vs Alex De Minaur – ATP Newport : Ivo Karlovic is a Croatian 39-years old player, ranked 112th of the ATP Rankings.
The best server of the circuit Ivo Karlovic takes advantage of his height to get the best angles when serving
and that’s why he is still able to play at a good level on the ATP circuit with almost 40 years of age and despite having dropped a lot in terms of rankings this year (having a record of 10-14)
he continues to be able to have direct entrance in a lot of tournaments and of course put up a good fight against most opponents.
He is also a good player at the net, who really likes to serve & volley, having a style with a lot of slices and a good one-handed backhand.
This year, his best result was reaching the semi-finals of the ATP Houston.
Alex De Minaur is an Australian 19-year-old tennis player who is ranked 77th on the ATP Rankings.
He is a talented player who is in great shape (sitting on his best ranking ever) and I’m sure that he will spend a lot of time on the “spotlight”.
He has great qualities and he is super well coached (by the former top 1 Lleyton Hewitt). Minaur is an intelligent and consistent player who likes to grow throughout matches.
He is a more defensive player who likes to play from the baseline and is very quick.
He also shows a lot of mental fortitude, he is not the typical Australian that “auto-implodes” on the matches and I really like that about him.
This year he won the Nottingham Challenger and he has shown himself more and more tailored for the grass.
Ivo Karlovic vs Alex De Minaur – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Karlovic is in poor form but his game also resides on the tie-breaks and if he is doing poorly there, he will always lose the match.
The Croatian obviously awaits the arrival of the hard-court season and he will face a super complicated opponent here.
De Minaur is in great form, he likes the surface and I believe he will win here.
