Borna Coric vs Mackenzie McDonald – Match Predictions
2-0 to Borna Coric
Coric enters this match as the clear favourite, given his superior ranking and recent performances on the clay court swing. He prefers the red surface where he impressed with long runs at Madrid Masters and Rome Masters, showcasing glimpses of his top form. In contrast, McDonald has struggled on both clay and grass courts, failing to secure a win until recently, getting first-round exits in his last seven tournaments. Coric’s aggressive baseline game and ability to dictate play should overpower McDonald, resulting in a convincing straight-set victory.
Under 21.5 Games
The last time Coric and McDonalad met, the American triumphed 3-1. Given his current form, it looks unlikely that he can put up any resistance. He ended his eight-match losing streak against 87-ranked Ilya Ivashka but did allow his rival 7 breakpoint opportunities. He was more efficient on the other end of the court, converting 3 of the 6 chances he got. Coric will not make the same mistakes or this many mistakes. He will look to quickly finish of the games as was the case in his French Open and other clay court outings. Based on this, we expect to see Under 21.5 Games to find a conclusion to this game.
Borna Coric vs Mackenzie McDonald Preview
Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in the French Open.
The 26-year-old is ranked 15th in the world and would be gunning to go after impressive results on the European clay court swing. He reached the quarter-finals of the Rome Masters and went one step further at the Italian Open. However, at Roland Garros, he could only reach the third round and would want to get it behind him as he kickstart his grass court adventures.
It has been a woeful couple of months on the clay court for Mackenzie McDonald. The 28-year-old had a 0-6 record on clay court events, getting knocked out at the first hurdle at each time of asking. His form continued in Surrey, where he failed to adapt to the switch from clay to grass. He finally got a win at Hertogenbosch, ending his eight-match losing streak that had started at the tail-end of March.
Borna Coric vs Mackenzie McDonald Head to Head
Coric suffered a 3-1 humbling at the hands of McDonald in the 2021 Australian Open. The Croatian never got going in that second-round meeting and will hope to avenge his defeat with his rival struggling for form.
