Hanfmann vs Krajinovic (By: Iniestaone)
Second round match from Sophia Antipolis challenger between Hanfmann (#160) and Krajinovic (#109)
Hanfmann is making his third tour appearance this year against Krajinovic after he won against Benchetrit in two sets in the first round in Sophia Antipolis, it was a surprising win even though he was a very small underdog. He had injury problems after US Open last year and expected to come back a lot sooner than he has
Krajinovic had to make the switch from Miami to a challenger in France which is often difficult in terms of motivation but he scrapped out a victory against Frederico Silva whom I underestimated against Brkic and he won in three sets, I think its what he needed to get adjusted to the surface
I expect this match to go a lot quicker, Krajinovic is having an amazing season as he is now 16/6 and he was huge in both Indian Wells and Miami where his losses came against Nadal and Federer. I think his first match in Sophia Antipolis went to three sets because he had to make a big transition, not just in terms of surface speed but also in terms of motivation. He lost the first set 5-7 and won the remaining two 6-4 6-2. I think its reasonable to assume he will defeat Hanfmann in under 20.5 games as it allows a scoreline like 6-4 6-4 which is very realistic
