17:30 – Anderson v Sela
Rankings are 95 and 63. Head to heads are 1-0 to Sela.
Sela reached the quarter finals last week and played extremely well. When the chips were down though he was a little too defensive which cost him the semi final place.
I don’t think he will have any problems today though. Kevin Anderson has had little success recently with perhaps his best performance coming against Melzer in Madrid where he took the first set.
Sela has a consistent first serve and wins 74% of his service games.
Back him on serve or from the start to green up after the first set.
Update: Anderson won a tight first set and Sela levelled at 1 set all. Anderson then retired with a shoulder injury.
Sela won 5-7, 6-3 (Anderson ret)
