ATP Adelaide Final Prediction
Jack Draper vs Jiri Lehecka
Head to head – First Meeting
This is an unexpected final lineup but nevertheless very exciting for the viewers. Jack Draper has been super impressive this week with a dominant performance in the semi finals. The Brit hasn’t looked vulnerable except for the match against Miomir Kecmanovic and it will tough for his opponent to match his firepower on all fronts.
Jiri Lehecka is just 22 years old and he has already taken a liking to the start of the year. The Czech had a fantastic year at the Grand Slams last year and he looks primed to better that. His all round game was evident against Sebastian Korda in a 6-2 6-1 rout. Lehecka may very well be a dangerous floater once again come the Australian Open.
Expect both these players to put their best foot forward in a match that looks likely to go the distance. Draper is the bigger server of the two but Lehecka is a more solid and consistent baseliner. Expect the Brit to make a fast start but Lehecka looks good to nab his first ATP title.
Prediction: Lehecka in 3
