Krajinovic vs Coric (By: Iniestaone)
Quarterfinal match from ATP Budapest between Krajinovic (#105) and Coric (#15)
Today was a disappointing day of tennis to say the least but moving on for tomorrow and hoping to get a good haul ahead of the ending stages in Barcelona and Budapest for the weekend.
I will back Coric to defeat Krajinovic in the first quarterfinals of the day in Budapest. I was wrong to back Albot to defeat Krajinovic today but looking back at the match and considering the odds, the difference was not big enough to warrant Krajinovic being a 1.30 favorite. It was a tight match where Albot just couldn't challenge him from the baseline enough and as Albot doesn't have that winning forehand or backhand, he gave Krajinovic too much time in the rallies to set up his winners and hit good shots.
Coric continued his trend of playing threesetters as he defeated Haase in three, I assumed Haase would take a set there because he is a very solid hard hitter on clay and he won the second set but overall Coric showed that he is the superior player. He was particularly good on his second serve, I liked that Haase only won 27% as he was returning Coric's second.
Its quite clear that Coric is a better player than Krajinovic, and if things move the way they should then he will take another win here. Krajinovic is on par with him on the odds because he is in great form but that form is mainly gathered against players much worse than Coric, its been a month since Krajinovic lost to Federer and since then he has won seven matches but none of the players he played are on par with Coric's quality, at least not on clay.
I will avoid the set betting here as Coric has played so many three set matches recently and its quite possible that he finds himself playing another threesetter here.
