ATP Moselle Open, 12:30 – Brown v Ram
Brown leads their previous meetings 4-2. Their only recent meeting was in March 2015 on a hard court. Brown won in 3 sets.
The 12 month stats are pretty close. Another 3 setter seems likely. Both can serve big.
Value is on Ram. Brown can be unpredictable. if he has one of his inspired days and served strongly he is quite capable of taking this. Backing the server could work well.
Gut feeling says Brown takes it in 3 sets.
ATP Moselle Open, 14:30 – Herbert v Stakhovsky
The 12 month indoor stats are quite close. Individual stats categories when comparing performances against common opponents actually favour Stakhovsky although Herbert’s win/loss record is better.
Herbert reached the final as a qualifier in Winston Salem the week before the US Open. He beat Stakhovsky in 2 sets in that tournament.
Stakhovsky played a Challenger tournament after the US Open and reached the final.
Herbert has home advantage. Back him above 2.00
