Mackenzie McDonald to Take it in Straight Sets

Recent months have not been very pleasant for Filip Krajinovic. He exited in the first round of three of his last four tournaments, winning just one match in that four-tournament stretch. As a matter of fact, Krajinovic is coming off three consecutive losses, and has lost five of his last six singles matches.

In comparison, Mackenzie McDonald has fared a lot better than today’s opponent recently. He reached the quarter-final and semi-final in his last two tournaments at Acapulco and Delray Beach. Furthermore, the only other time these players met, McDonald won in straight sets. That said, we should expect a similar result today, with Mackenzie McDonald reigning supreme in two sets.

Under 21.5 Games

We’ve already established that Filip Krajinovic suffered five losses in his last six matches. It’s also fair to point out that four of those matches went below the projected over/under points margin. In like manner, Mackenzie McDonald’s recent matches have mostly been one-sided; as his last three singles matches went below 18.5 games, with an average of 16 games per match. On that note, we expect this match to go under 21.5 games.
