Albot vs Krajinovic (By: Iniestaone)
Second round match from ATP Budapest between Albot (#44) and Krajinovic (#105)
Can't help but feel that these odds are skewed. While its true that Albot has not played on clay a lot this season, I don't think its something that has shown in his last three matches. He knocked out Bedene in Monte Carlo in two fast sets before doing a very bad match against an excellent Medvedev in the following round and his first round in Budapest was a 7-5 6-4 win against Stakhovsky who came to Budapest in great form.
Krajinovic is the obvious favorite because he is more of a clear cut clay courter than Albot who is in general an allround player but the difference between them is not nearly as big as to warrant Albot being the underdog at three times the money. He is still a very experienced clay courter.
I think this will be a match with many long rallies and a short amount of fast points, with that match picture in mind I don't see Krajinovic having an advantage over Albot who is playing the tennis of his life and he is doing so because he has found baseline consistency. There is a bigger chance of Albot winning this than the odds would make you think.
