    Points won by each set: | 40-34, 30-36, 26-12 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    43 % Fritz – 31 of 72
    28 % Kecmanovic – 30 of 106

    Despite cooperating with a former no. 3 Nalbandian, Kecmanovic [61] had an abysmal year 2021 mainly due to his inability to win deciding sets (lost 11 deciding sets in a row (!), three five-setters included). The year 2022 seems like his breakthrough season, at Aussie Open he reached his first major fourth round, at Indian Wells his first Masters 1K quarterfinal (with the help of three three-setters). Fritz [20] saved a double break point at 5-all and raced to a 5:1 lead in the tie-break. There was 5-all a few minutes later and the American got the two vital points. Throughout the match Fritz was serving exceptionally well apart from a game at 3:4 in the 2nd set. There was 0/15 when he committed three consecutive double faults, not risking his second serves at all – something like that is actually unseen at the professional level. “I’m really happy with how it turned out,” Fritz said post-match. “He was playing tough from the baseline. I was maybe giving him a little bit too much. I felt like I couldn’t really string it together on his serve [in the first two sets].

    In their following event (Miami), they face each other again on Centre Court, that time in the 4th round Kecmanovic wins 3-6, 6-1, 6-4
