Kecmanovic vs Travaglia: prediction for the ATP Sydney match
Miomir Kecmanovic faces Stefano Travaglia in the Round of 32 of the Sydney International tournament. Who will advance to the next round? Look out for our answer in the prediction below.
Miomir Kecmanovic had a terrible season last year. The Serbian tennis player was inconsistent and recorded only 17 victories in 27 matches. This is the worst result in his career. Last time Kecmanovic appeared on court in the beginning of December. Back then, he lost to Mihail Kukushkin at the Davis Cup in three sets of bitter struggle (6-7, 6-4, 6-7).
Stefano Travaglia has already played one match this year. Last week, he lost to Alexei Popyrin at the tournament in Melbourne (7-6, 6-3). In Sydney, the Italian tennis player successfully passed Matthew Romios (7-5, 6-1) in the first qualifying match, but failed to defeat Christopher O'Connell (3-6, 4-6). Travaglia got into the main draw of the Sydney International as the lucky loser.
In the last 5 matches, Kecmanovic played 3 tie-breaks.
Travaglia played more than 9 games in the first set in 4 of his last 5 matches.
The only match between these two players ended in three sets. Kecmanovic and Travaglia are in roughly the same shape, and we expect them to put up a fight and overcome the total of 22 games.
Our prediction - total over 22 games
This will be the first match of the season for Kecmanovic, while Travaglia has already had some playing practice, which might make all the difference. The Italian player won the previous match against Kecmanovic, and we are predicting his victory in the upcoming fixture.
Second bet - Travaglia to win
