Dusan Lajovic vs. Sebastian Baez Predictions, Tips and Odds – May 23, 2022 11:00 CET
The second day of the competition at Roland Garros brings us some very interesting duels in the men’s singles. The draw wanted two players whose favorite surface is clay to meet at the start of the tournament – Dušan Lajović and Sebastian Baez.
The Serbian tennis player is in his mature playing years, and this is one of the last tournaments in Paris where he might achieve a remarkable result. On the other hand, the talented Argentinian is young and wants to prove himself on the biggest tennis scene.

After a somewhat longer period, Dusan Lajovic combined two tournaments in which he played solidly – in Madrid and in Rome he passed through the qualifications successfully. While he won the first two rounds in Madrid, against Borna Ćorić and Casper Ruud, Alex De Minaur eliminated him at the start of the tournament in the Italian capital.
Appearing at the Masters Series tournaments was important for Dusan in order to find some rhythm before the start of the most important clay-court tournament. In the past, he played his best tennis on clay, and he certainly does not come to Paris just to be a participant, but he wants to go as far as possible.

💪💯Best of luck for your next game Dusan

Sebastian Baez has participated in clay-court tournaments continuously for the past month. Although he is only 22 years old, he is already known as a player who plays his best tennis on this type of surface. The Argentinian played as many as 64 matches on clay last year and won at 52. He has a good win-loss ratio this season as well –22:8.
He has already won one trophy on clay this season, in Estoril. Baez did not participate in Madrid, but he passed the qualifications in Rome, as well as the first round. Alexander Zverev eliminated him in the second round, but the Argentine played great (6:7, 3:6).
Sebastian took part in the tournament in Lyon last week and was stopped there by Cameron Norrie in the quarterfinals. All in all, the talented Argentinian comes well prepared for Roland Garros and his desire to achieve his first victories in this tournament in his career is very strong.

Dusan Lajovic vs. Sebastian Baez Prediction
Although the bookmakers marked Sebastian Baez as the favorite, we think we will watch an exciting and uncertain match. DušanLajovic is more experienced than the Argentine and he enjoys playing on clay, so this will not be an easy task for the player from Buenos Aires. We will not be surprised if the winner is known only after five sets.
Prediction: Total Over 36.5
