Djere vs Kecmanovic Prediction: French Open Betting Picks
June 2, 2021
Djere vs Kecmanovic is a battle of Serbian players in the second round of the 2021 French Open. While neither player has a chance at being the number one player from his country anytime soon, both players have a great chance to pick up a significant win in this matchup. In this round of tennis picks, we look at this all-Serbian affair and pick a winner for Djere vs Kecmanovic.
Laslo Djere vs Miomir Kecmanovic Betting Pick
Laslo Djere started his French Open campaign with a victory over Frenchman Corentin Moutet in the first round. The four-set victory helped Djere to put behind him a run of six losses in his last eight matches on clay. Djere will now look to pick up a win over his countryman to make it to the third round on the red clay of Roland-Garros.
Heading into this match, Djere has a statistical advantage over Kecmanovic on clay. He has been better at holding his serve and breaking the serve of his opponents on clay over the last year. But what Djere does not have is an advantage in the head-to-head against Kecmanovic, as he has never once beaten Kecmanovic during a competitive match.
Miomir Kecmanovic picked up an impressive win of his own to start his French Open campaign. He beat Dan Evans in four sets, with Evans playing some strong tennis on clay during this year’s European clay court swing. Kecmanovic had lost his last four matches on this surface heading into the first round against Evans, and will look to build a winning streak on this surface against his fellow Serbian.
Kecmanovic was especially impressive at creating break chances in the first round against Evans. He had 28 break points for the match, and converted enough of them to pick up a win in four sets. If he can continue to generate pressure against Djere, he should be able to pick up a second straight win in Paris.
Djere vs Kecmanovic has been contested three times all-time heading into this match. Kecmanovic has won all three of those matches in straight sets, winning all seven of the sets contested between these two players. Those wins came once on clay in Argentina, and twice on hard courts at the US Open and Indian Wells.
While neither player has been particularly impressive on clay as of late, Kecmanovic has a clear head-to-head advantage over Djere. Expect Kecmanovic to continue to generate pressure throughout this match and to come through as a plus money winner on the moneyline in this all-Balkan battle.
French Open Betting FAQ
Will the upsets continue at Roland-Garros?
It is entirely possible that the upsets will continue at the French Open. The big upset for Tuesday came when Andrey Rublev was knocked out by Jan-Lennard Struff. And with Dominic Thiem also failing to survive the first round, there is no telling where the pandemonium will end in the early stages of this tournament.
What other matches are worth checking out on Wednesday?
There are a few very interesting matchups to come on Wednesday at Roland-Garros. Khachanov vs Nishikori is going to be fascinating as both players will look to gain a foothold against the other. And Fognini vs Fucsovics is another match that true tennis fans will not want to miss.
Is this Nadal’s tourney to lose?
Every French Open is Rafael Nadal’s tournament to lose. But Novak Djokovic has looked spectacular during the tail end of the clay season. While Nadal will be the favorite if they end up playing down the road, it is entirely possible that Djokovic or Tsitsipas could steal this trophy away from the King of Clay.
