Finally :rocker2:

The one with a win over Djokovic goes through :cool:

His 1st ATP tour win after few years.

I haven't seen the 1st set but judging by the stats Krajinovic was terrible. Probably needed to adapt mentally to playing a main draw at a 500 tournament.

In the 2nd he was serving for the set at 5-3 but got broken. Then broke at 6-5.

In the 3rd he was just the better player. Tbh Struff's level also dropped in the 3rd.

On a side note, Filip's passing shots were excellent. Struff was pretty bad at the net tho.

Is Filip finally on his way to the top100? Plays Fognini next. Good luck

Filip looked tense at the beginnig of the match and during the whole first set.
But as soon as he said to himself: "I don't know which shot to hit!" he started to hit the right ones :lol: and raised his level of play.

Being more relaxed and enjoying the play he did what was he needed to do to win this match.

Well done indeed. Me happy. :dance:

It was a tough one! His first ATP match of the year, right away CC of course it was tough. I doubted he would bounce back, but I'm really glad he proved me wrong!

Can't wait to see him face Fognini! Will be an interesting match up!

Watched this is patches because I never seen either Struff of Krajinovic before :)
Some good shotmaking from Struff who played a perfect first set. Then Krajinovic started to feel more and more comfortable out there while Struff's game slowly declined. A bit of a choke at 5-3 second set, but Krajinovic managed to grind out the set and on the end it was almost routine win for him. What a turnaround. :worship:

Against the Fog everything is possiblebut it should something like 6-4 6-3 for Fog.

Struff was cruising and then .... epic fall

never saw Krajinovic play before, not really impressed, expected more for some reason
