Dan Evans vs Miomir Kecmanovic: Preview
British star, Dan Evans will open against Miomir Kecmanovic in the French Open. The 25th seed started his Clay season with a bang and has been in decent form ever since. He stunned World No.1 Novak Djokovic with a straight sets victory in Monte Carlo and finished inside the Top 4 of the tournament.
He also reached the Round of 16 at the Madrid Open defeating the likes of Jeremy Chardy and John Millman but couldn’t make his ways in Rome as he bowed out of the first round to Taylor Fritz.
On the contrary, his opponent, Miomir Kecmanovic has been in terrible form. The Serb started well at home in the Serbia Open where he reached the quarterfinal before losing to Novak Djokovic in straight sets. But since then, he hasn’t won any match on the ATP Tour and has lost in the first round at Madrid and Rome. And to his dismay, he again lost in the opening round to Pablo Cuevas at Belgrade 2.
Dan Evans vs Miomir Kecmanovic: Head-to-Head
This will be the first meeting between the duo. They have never met before and hence the H2H stands deadlock at 0-0.
Dan Evans vs Miomir Kecmanovic: Prediction
Evans will be the favorite to win the match. He has been hitting very well from the baseline all season and will again look to do the same against Kecmanovic. The Serb will have to defend very well against Evans if he has to make life difficult for the Briton. Expect a gripping match with Evans cruising into the next round.
Prediction: Evans to win in straight sets.
