Miomir Kecmanovic – Denis Shapovalov Match Prediction | 21-08-2019

The Serbian has had a breakthrough year and cracked the top 50 for the first time at the start of this week after reaching the last 16 in Cincinnati as a qualifier. He will be trusting in his consistency and movement to blunt the Shapovalov attack. But he looks set to be in for a stern test up against Miomir Kecmanovic. After also receiving a first-round bye, he began his Winston-Salem Open by beating Alexei Popyrin 7-6 6-3. But when the Canadian is on his game, as he looks to be this week, he can hit through almost anyone.

[15] In Miami, he beat former top-10 player Ernests Gulbis in the first round before losing to Frances Tiafoe in two tiebreak sets. He played in BNP Paribas Open as a lucky loser. This result meant that Kecmanovi was ranked in the top 100 for the first time. 56 Leonardo Mayer at the Brisbane International. He defeated 30th seed Laslo ere on his way to the quarterfinals, before losing to in straight sets to Milos Raonic. He earned his first ATP victory by defeating world No.

Kecmanovi was a fifth (reserve) player on a Serbian Davis Cup team in their quarterfinal tie against Great Britain in the 2016 Davis Cup[7][8] a standard practice of Tennis Federation of Serbia for each tie to invite a different talented young player to practice with regular players and gain necessary experience. Kecmanovi credited this experience for finishing the year as junior world No.

In his first match, he recovered well from a slow start to end Duckhee Lees dream run with a 4-6 6-0 6-3 win. Expect his power off the ground to prove too much for Lopez to contend with. The Pole has had an excellent year and will surely be targeting a deep run at the Winston-Salem Open. Feliciano Lopez has been in rather indifferent form this year, his memorable triumphs at Queens Club aside, but the veteran Spaniard showed that he can still play in his narrow 6-4 1-6 7-5 win over his countryman Pablo Andujar. His big serve and willingness to play on the front foot bailed him out more than once in that match and he will need more of the same against Hubert Hurkacz.
