Miroslav Horejsi vs. Dimitrij Prokopcov Prediction:
Miroslav Horejsi is heading into Monday with wins in just one out of his previous four matches. One of those losses was against Prokopcov on April 14. It wasn’t exactly close either, with Prokopcov easily bypassing Horesi for a win by a score of 3-1. Prokopcov won the final three sets 11-7, 12-10, 11-6. After losing the first set, Prokopcov took full control of the rest of the match. While it’s important to recognize players who are hot, it’s also important to find players who are really cold. It seems to be tougher for the mediocre players to get out of those ruts.
Prokopcov has been anything but cold recently. He’s been racking up wins recently, with wins in seven out of his last nine matches. Since a loss against a very good Tomas Konecny, Prokopcov has gone 7-2 since April 14. Konecny is one of the best players in Czechia so that 3-2 loss isn’t the worst in the world.
Note that Prokopcov has had a serious advantage over Horejsi in their meetings at the table. Prokopcov has gone 9-3 against Horejsi, which includes total domination in their previous three clashes. Horejsi has managed to win just one set against Prokopcov, losing 9-1 in their last ten sets played. He’s struggled with a record of 1-5 in their previous six matches.
