Philipp Kohlschreiber Form

Philipp Kohlschreiber is a former top-20 player, but at the age of 37 his best results appear to be behind him. He played only six matches post-shutdown in 2020, all on clay, and went 2-4, dropping out of the top 100.

Kohlschreiber did not play in 2021 until April and has exclusively competed on clay, compiling a 4-4 record. 

He got his first win over a top-100 player since January 2020 when he beat Fernando Verdasco, ranked world no. 99, in the first round of the French Open.

Kohlschreiber is a classy player with a great single-handed backhand but he does not have the raw power of Karatsev.

Aslan Karatsev Form

Russia’s Aslan Karatsev has been one of the big tennis stories of 2021. After winning two Challengers and reaching two finals in 2020, Karatsev qualified for the Australian Open and made a spectacular run to the semifinals, ousting three seeded players on the way.

Karatsev went on to win in Dubai and reached the final in Belgrade. He has scored five wins over top-10 players in 2021, including beating Novak Djokovic, Diego Schwartzman and Daniil Medvedev on clay.

Karatsev scored his twenty-fifth win of 2021 when he beat qualifier Jenson Brooksby 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 in the first round and he should be able to record a similar win over Kohlschreiber.
