Alejandro Davidovich Fokina
◾️Alejandro Davidovich Fokina is also part of the new generation of players.
◾️The young Iberian, just 20 years old, shook his head in the tennis world last year, when he noticed by some good results, but on the slab, like any other Spanish otherwise.
◾️Or better said, like any Iberian, who is learning this sport on the red surface.
◾️Of course, as a high quality player who is also of great perspective, Fokina has to adapt his game on all surfaces, and the hardware is one of the surfaces that most tournaments play in one season.
◾️The adaptation is not easy or better, the accommodation with a quick surface is not available to anyone.
◾️And especially for a player only 20 years old, who until last year only played in challenger or ITF tournaments. 1
◾️3 matches has tightened the Spanish ATP level, of which only 3 are victories.
◾️Fokina received a wild card for direct access to the main Auckland board, where some very good players are involved.
◾️The Spaniard participated in the qualifiers for the tournament in Doha, but Alejandro failed to qualify, being defeated in the final round of the preliminaries by Mikael Ymer.
◾️That’s after he had 1-0 at the sets and break break in the second act.
◾️The match in the inaugural round in Auckland is difficult to announce, especially since the opponent met is an experienced ATP player and was a top 20 player in the world.
◾️But the Iberian will play his chance to the end and it is not excluded to see at least one match with a decisive set.
Kyle Edmund: Team shape, news and statistics
◾️Kyle Edmund showed signs of a comeback at the end of last season, when he won 3 consecutive wins in the Davis Cup, thus helping his representative in the matches played.
◾️And the defeated opponents were not of the lowest level, Kukushkin, Kohlschreiber or Feli Lopez being in the category of good tennis players.
◾️Only that the start of the new season did not bode well for the British, who lost in the first round in Doha, in front of Filip Krajinovic.
◾️That’s after leading 1-0 at sets.
◾️The game was not necessarily bad, especially in set 1, when Kyle showed a good tennis, which reminded the player who not long ago fought on par with the best tennis players in the circuit.
◾️Last season was a poor one for the British, it failed to be even far at the level shown in 2018.
◾️ In fact, 2 seasons ago, Edmund also achieved his best ranking, 14th place.
◾️And at that time, Kyle was fighting with any top player, including Nadal, Djokovic or Federer.
◾️Now just 69th, Kyle is trying to find his last tennis season with 2 seasons.
◾️The return will not be easy, but last week’s game in Qatar gives the British hope.
◾️Only Edmund needs to be more careful, not to make totally unforced and atypical mistakes and to find the winning balls at the key moments of the match.
◾️Kyle is a favorite with Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, but it won’t be an easy match.
◾️Of course, if he plays at the usual level and will not make the mistakes in sets 2 and 3 of the match with Krajinovic, then Edmund has a good chance of going to the next round of the competition.
Tennis Prediction of the Day Alejandro Davidovich Fokina vs Kyle Edmund
The match will be closer than the odds show. This is mainly because the British is no longer at the level of the last 2 years, but also because Fokina is on the right track and is starting to show a solid and hard tennis. Playing in the only match this season for Kyle was not bad, only that Edmund made a series of childhood mistakes that cost him decisively. The Iberian is not at the level of Krajinovic at the present time, so if the British will play without the mistakes made in the previous match, they should not have any emotions in gaining the victory.
