This will be their first meeting.
Both players have come through the qualifying rounds. Stebe had 2 good wins over benneteau and Janowicz. He won both matches in straight sets. Pella had easier opponents but also got the job done in straight sets in each round.
Clay stats this year strongly favour Stebe. He won 4 of his 5 matches on clay and in the last 12 months he has won 15 of his 22 matches on the dirt.
Pella has not been at his best in 2017. To be fair to him though, on clay he has had some tough opponents in 2017.
Value is on Stebe to take at least a set. Lay Pella below 1.40.
Update: Well that didn’t go as planned. Surely Stebe was injured as he lost 0-6, 2-6!
