Miomir Kecmanovic vs Laslo Dere: Prediction
The two players will be very familiar to each others’ game and we can expect to win a cracker of a match. With both players in decent, the match could go down to the third set.
Djere, prefers playing on clay and has a very solid defense. It would be very difficult for Kecmaonovic to penetrate Djere’s defense and to adapt to his slow gameplay. Expect Djere to cruise in three tight sets.
Prediction: Djere to win in three sets.
