TennisSection previews the 2021 Stockholm Open as Felix Auger-Aliassime takes on Filip Krajinovic in the Round of 16 on Wednesday, November 10th, 2021.
Will Felix Auger-Aliassime get the win? Will Filip Krajinovic pull off the upset? This will be an interesting one, where we have a tight matchup with a top player taking on a very dangerous opponent. Who will move on to the quarterfinals at the 2021 Stockholm Open?
Felix Auger-Aliassime has not been playing too great of tennis since reaching the semifinals of the 2021 US Open. He’s been struggling to win too many matches, despite his very high ranking and great game. Auger-Aliassime has a massive game, with a very good serve, but it can be inconsistent, which is what ultimately hurts him. He has a tough one ahead of him in Filip Krajinovic, who is able to get great wins over top players. In order to take him out, he will have to stay consistent and aggressive, which of course sounds like a dream style, but what he should focus on is not trying to finish every point too quickly, but leading on with the pressure. Let’s see if he can regroup and get the win to kick off his campaign here at the 2021 Stockholm Open.
Filip Krajinovic got a solid win over Istomin to set up this very tough meeting with World No. 11 Felix Auger-Aliassime. He has a shot at the upset, simply due to the loose cannon nature of Auger-Aliassime, but assuming he’s not off his game, he has little chance to get through. Krajinovic has a super solid game, and when he’s playing aggressive, he’s really dangerous, being able to take down top players like FAA. Let’s see if the two will give us an exciting match as they clash for a place in the quarterfinals at the 2021 Stockholm Open.
Felix Auger-Aliasime and Filip Krajinovic have met 3 times before, with Filip Krajinovic leading the head to head 2-1. Their first meeting is rather irrelevant, coming in 2018. With their next two meetings being at the same tournament in 2020 and 2021, and being on the clay, it’s a little bit hard to judge their matchup on a quicker court like this. I do expect Auger-Aliassime to have regrouped by this point, considering his results at times this year, being able to make deep runs at grand slam tournaments.. to not expect him to take down Krajinovic is tough. Let’s see if he can put on a strong showing and edge him out to move through to the next round at the 2021 Stockholm Open.
