Francisco Cerundolo 2.24, Pablo Andujar 1.79
Due to start around 7 pm.
This will be their first meeting.
Stronger overall results for Andujar in the last 12 months. He leads with 62% v 55% matches won. He also has a much better clay record. In the last year he won 76% of his matches compared to 57% for his opponent.
Cerundolo has had some decent results on clay. He reached the quarter finals of the Guayaquil Challenger in Ecuador at the end of October last year. He beat Paolo Lorenzi in the third round. He reached 2 more quarter finals in September and had a straight sets win over Hugo Dellien as underdog in the second round.
Andujar has played 3 matches in 2020. All were on hard courts and he was underdog each time. Clay is by far his strongest surface. He has not played a match on clay since his quarter final finish in Kitzbuhel, Austria. the week before that he was in the semi finals in Gstaad, Switzerland. He did play this tournament last year but lost in the first round to Lorenzo Sonego in straight sets. He started that match at a very similar price to to where his price is today. His price has drifted a little since this morning.
If Andujar is anywhere near his best he wins. He is taking on a local player and that can be tough in Argentina. The local crowd will be very loud and will try to influence the match. Back Andujar around 1.85 to 1.95. If Andujar gets a very early break it is worth a small lay on him and remove the liability when he gets broken back.
