Mikael Ymer 1.97, Aljaz Bedene 2.00
Due to start around 2:30 pm
Ymer won their only previous match. That was in September last year at the Orleans Challenger in France. He won in 2 close sets on an indoor hard court.
Stronger overall results for Ymer in 2019. He won 72% of his matches. His hard court results were also stronger. He has come through the qualifying rounds this week. His best results on hard courts have been in Challenger tournaments.
Bedene won a Challenger title on hard courts in August and reached the 3rd round of the US Open. He prefers indoor courts and reached the final in Metz in September and made the quarter finals in Vienna as a qualifier in his last tournament of the season.
There is a very good chance that this goes to 3 sets. Lay Bedene around 1.65 to 1.70 and remove your liability at 2.30. I am giving a slight edge to Ymer to win.
