In the 1/16 challenger finals in Antalya, Nicholas Hardt from the Dominican Republic will play against Ukrainian Alexey Krutykh.
The 21-year-old representative of the Dominican Republic has been in Antalya since last week. Last week in Turkey, he performed quite well and reached the quarterfinals, where he was stopped by Nuno Borges, who eventually won the tournament. In the match with Borges, Hardt could not show any special tennis and eventually lost in two sets – 2:6; 4:6.
The 21-year-old representative of Ukraine, after a couple of unsuccessful tournaments in Nur-Sultan at the end of October, decided to take a break and missed the whole of November. In general, the autumn was pretty mediocre for the Cool Ones, and he could not boast of any serious victories.
Considering that Alexey Krutykh has not played for more than a month, and Nicholas Hardt has been in Antalya for the second week, the Ukrainian tennis player has quite little chance of winning, and therefore we think it would be more logical to bet on the success of the representative of the Dominican Republic.
