ATP Ecuador Open, semi final: Lorenzi v Bellucci (18:00)

Lorenzi leads from their previous matches 2-1. The most recent was in February last season. Lorenzi won in 3 sets on a clay court. All their matches have been on clay. The last 2 went to 3 sets.

Lorenzi hit 25 aces against Tomic. That takes some doing on clay even if it is at altitude. That match will have taken a lot out of him.

Bellucci also had a tough 3 setter. He hit 15 aces but also 10 double faults. The double faults aren’t a huge surprise as he sometimes takes risks on his 2nd serve.

I think Lorenzi has given almost all he has this week and will be a step slower today. I still think there is a little value on him and that we see 3 sets.

Back Bellucci above 1.80 .
