ATP Sardinia Open Semifinal Predictions

Danilo Petrovic vs Marco Cecchinato

Head to head – First Meeting
What an unbelievable turn of events it has been this week for Danilo Petrovic. The Serb lost in qualifying and after getting to play as a lucky loser, he’s now in the semi-finals. Petrovic didn’t look out of place at all in taking out Federico Delbonis in straight sets. The Serb saved an impressive eleven out of twelve break points and took all three chances he got to break. It’s been a fairy tale run till now for the Serb but to continue this, he’ll have to play his best match yet.
His opponent, Marco Cecchinato is no stranger to this surface having already won three titles in the past two years. The Italian ran away with the last two sets against Albert Ramos-Vinolas and despite winning a meager twenty-nine percent points on his second serve, he came through. The serving statistic aside, Cecchinato was solid from the baseline and he’ll have the upperhand from the baseline. Expect Cecchinato to have his way from the baseline and use his experience at the later stages of a tournament to get the win.
Prediction: Cecchinato in 2

Lorenzo Musetti vs Laslo Djere

Head to head – First Meeting
The young Italian, Lorenzo Musetti played some of his best tennis coming back from 4-0 down in the second set to reel off six straight games to take the set. Musetti isn’t afraid to play aggressive tennis and that is what makes him extremely dangerous. When he takes on Laslo Djere, Musetti will again have to replicate the level he’s shown throughout this tournament. These two have never played each other which makes this match even more interesting.
The Serb too has looked in decent form himself and is yet to drop a set. Djere has already won a title on clay in Rio last year and plays good tennis on clay. This match should be a tight contest with many momentum shifts. Both players have been serving well in this tournament and expect them to continue in the same vein. Expect the young Italian to make a strong start to the match but as Djere gets settled in, he should be able to play the consistent brand of tennis he plays and eventually wrestle control of the match.
Prediction: Djere in 3
