Eighteenth seed Alex de Minaur will take on Filip Krajinovic in the first round of the 2022 US Open on Monday.
The 2022 season has been fantastic for De Minaur. At Wimbledon and the Australian Open, he advanced to the second week. In Atlanta, he also captured his sixth championship of his career. The Australian has won 35 of the 54 games he has played so far this season, including some significant victories over Denis Shapavalov, Matteo Berrettini, and Cameron Norrie. De Minaur, who made it to the US Open quarterfinals in 2020, will try to maintain his recent success there.
With appearances in the semifinals of the Montpellier tournament and the final of the Queen’s Club Championships, Filip Krajinovic is having a respectable season of his own. In 35 games, the Serbian has 19 victories. He recently defeated Dan Evans to get to the second round of the Cincinnati Masters, but Stefanos Tsitsipas, the eventual champion, knocked him out.

Filip Krajinovic vs Alex de Minaur Prediction
De Minaur has significantly improved in the last 12 months. The Australian has always been nimble on the floor and possessed excellent defensive abilities. However, he has added more muscle this season and his serve has gotten better. He approaches the goal unafraid to score goals. Despite the fact that Krajinovic may be a tough opponent to beat on occasion, de Minaur should be able to win with relative ease given his current form and level of confidence.
