Today at 14:00. In one of the matches of the first round of the Kremlin Cup, Miomir Kechmanovich will face Yegor Gerasimov. Will the Belarusian be able to cope with the Serbian tennis player? – read our forecast.
Miomir Kechmanovich. At one time, Kechmanovich was given large advances. He was even considered the heir to Novak Djokovic. But the Serb fell short of expectations. His best result in his career is considered the 38th line of the world ranking. Now he has dropped to 71st position and got into a small crisis.
Over the past two months, the representative of Serbia has won only two matches. At tournaments in Sofia and Nur-Sultan, he defeated Fernando Verdasco and Adrian Andreev. After the last win, he lost to Gianluca Mager (6-7, 3-6) and Alexei Popyrin (3-6, 6-7).
Egor Gerasimov. In 2019, Gerasimov performed well at the Kremlin Cup. Then the Belarusian won the qualification, and defeated Thomas Fabbiano in the main draw. After the second round, Yegor had to cover his racket. He lost to Andrei Rublev, but he did it in a fight. The Belarusian even won one game against the Russian.
This year Gerasimov started his way at the Kremlin Cup again in qualification. He won the first match with confidence. Hindu Ramanathan Yegor played in two games (6-3, 6-4). But to defeat Elias Ymer, he needed three sets (6-4, 1-6, 6-2).
Tennis match prediction
It looks like Kechmanovich never got out of the crisis. It is very likely that the Serb is just playing out this season and plans to start from scratch next. Perhaps he came to Moscow exclusively for the prize money and will not give all his best at 100%.
Gerasimov beat Evgeny Donskoy and Vashek Pospisil in the last matches. We believe that the Belarusian has good chances to qualify for the second round of the competition. Our prediction is a victory for Yegor Gerasimov for a coefficient of 1.92. Was it helpful and interesting? Would you like more free tennis predictions every day?
