Sela has won 6 of their 7 matches. They last met in July 2016 in Newport, USA. Sela won in straight sets on grass. Lacko’s win was indoors in Memphis in 2011 and he won in 3 sets. Sela won their last 4 meetings in straight sets.
Lacko has come through the qualifying rounds. He beat Ramos in 5 sets in the main draw.
Sela had quite an easy 4 set win over Granollers in the last round. He doesn’t have a huge serve so has to work hard for his holds.
Both have decent stats on hard courts over the last 12 months but Sela has a real edge. Sela starts around 1.57 and I will wait for 1.85 before backing him. I don’t expect him to win in 3 sets.
