Anderson leads their previous meetings 3-2. Their last match was in June 2016 on grass. Anderson won that one in straight sets. He won their last 3 meetings.
Anderson has not played a great deal of tennis in 2017. He has struggled to find some consistency even on his favoured hard courts.
Both Verdasco’s wins were on clay. We have slightly better clay stats from Verdasco. Even though he won both their clay matches I think he starts too low at 1.42.
Back Verdasco if he faces break point on his own serve
