ATP Indian Wells Tennis Tips

Marcos Giron vs Filip Krajinovic

Sunday, 2:00pm AEDT

This is an interesting battle we have lined up for Round 2 at Indian Wells, with two players coming into this one off some solid indoor European hardcourt efforts. Who transitions back to the North American hardcourts the best?

Marcos Giron has a big advantage, with a match under his belt from round 1. He defeated the dangerous Botic Van De Zandschulp 6-7 6-2 6-4. After a slow start, Giron responded impressively, winning 78% of points behind his first serve and controlling the majority of the last two sets. It was a good back up for Giron, coming off a quarter final in Metz and a semi final in Sofia within the last three weeks. Back in the US and coming off a strong performance, this looks to be a great spot to support him at near even money.

Filip Krajinovic can be a tricky player to gauge given the inconsistency in his level and game. That is largely part of the reason that I rarely get involved with backing him as a favourite as his ability to find his top level can fluctuate. Whilst he does have a slightly higher ceiling in terms of what his best level looks like compared to Giron, I see Giron able to manage a level closer to his peak for longer. Krajinovic has one outdoor hardcourt win to his name since the Australian Open in his 5 attempts, including a loss to Guido Pella at the US Open. Transitioning back into the conditions on a hot day, I’d be looking for a rise of 30-40 cents on his current pricing.

Taking the more consistent performer here, coming off a strong finish in round 1, against a more inconsistent opponent coming off a round 1 bye.
