Pella leads their previous meetings 2-1. The most recent was in February 2014. Pella won on clay in 3 tie break sets.
Mayer has never been past the 2nd round at his home tournament. Pella only won 1 main draw match at this tournament. Home advantage doesn’t seem to help either player!
Mayer is stronger on this surface although Pella has been in better recent form.
This can easily go to 3 sets. The value is on Pella.
Lay Mayer below 1.30.
