Schwartzman was comfortable in his first round match with Haider Maurer. He won in straight sets and was broken twice. In the last round he faced Bellucci who is trying to find form after his ban for doping. Bellucci took the opening set but Schwartzman fought back to win in 3 sets.
Bedene also had an easy first round match against Vesely but was really tested by Ramos in the last round. He lost the opening set and a very late break in the second set gave him the set. He ran away with the deciding set and lost just 1 game.
Value on Bedene to take at least a set. Three sets seem likely. Lay Schwartzman around 1.40.
Update: Bedene won 6-4, 6-4.
