World No. 9 Felix Auger-Aliassime and Filip Krajinovic will lock horns in the third round of the French Open on Friday.

Auger-Aliassime had a great start to the year. He played in the ATP Cup and led team Canada to victory alongside Denis Shapovalov. After a quarterfinal exit at the Australian Open to Daniil Medvedev in five sets, the Canadian won his maiden title at Rotterdam.

After a disappointing loss to Lorenzo Musetti in the second round of the Monte-Carlo Masters, Auger-Aliassime made the quarterfinals in each of his next four tournaments (Estoril, Barcelona, Madrid and Rome).

fter coming back from two sets to love down to beat Juan Pablo Varillas in the first round of the French Open, Auger-Aliassime looked much more confident in the second round. He put up a power-packed performance against Camilo Ugo Carabelli, winning the match 6-0, 6-3, 6-4.

Filip Krajinovic, on the other hand, has not had the best of starts to the season. His best result of the year was a semifinal finish in Montpellier.

After losing in the first round against John Isner in Madrid, Krajinovic made it to the round of 16 in Rome, bowing out to World No. 12 Janik Sinner 6-2, 7-6(6).

At the French Open, Krajinovic ousted big-serving American Reilly Opelka in the first round and passed a stern test against Borna Gojo 7-6(5), 6-2, 5-7, 6-1.

Felix Auger-Aliassime vs Filip Krajinovic prediction

Auger-Aliassime seems to have found his rhythm after a shaky first-round display. The 21-year-old relies on his strong serve and powerful forehand to win points quickly. Where the Canadian falls short is variety and tactics, often letting matches slip away due to the absence of a cohesive game plan.

Krajinovic showed perseverance in his last round and won against a tough opponent. Unlike Auger-Aliassime, the Serb focuses on constructing points patiently by generating good angles to get a short reply before stepping in and putting it away, often closing the net if necessary.

Auger-Aliassime will be the slight favourite entering this match. This could be an interesting contest if Krajinovic starts well and takes the game to the Canadian. The Serb wasn't particularly strong on his serve against Gojo, winning only 66% of points on first serve while also hitting 39 unforced errors.

These two factors could be crucial to Krajinovic's chances of making the fourth round of a Slam for the first time. All things considered, Auger-Aliassime should have too much firepower for the Serb to handle.

Pick: Auger-Aliassime to win in four sets.
