10:00 – Chiudinelli v Llodra
Rankings are 54 and 70. They haven’t met.
Neither player has produced any great results so far this season.
Llodra has quite a big serve and wins 71% of his service games. Chiudinelli wins 72% of his and I think whichever player can get their serve working best will win the match.
Watch how the opening games go to get an idea of who is more comfortable at the start. Llodra would be my favourite here. Back him on serve if its working well.
Could be a tie break in the opening set. If the set goes to 5-5 be careful of backing the server as price movements for a break at that stage will be huge.
Update:Well, no tie break in the opening set but the next 2 did go to tie break.
Llodra got off to a terrible start and lost the first set 1-6. He fought back to take the second but it was Chiudinelli who finally came out on top.
Chiudinelli won 6-1, 6-7, 7-6.
