This will be their first meeting.
Haas has been trying to get back into the swing of the tour after surgery. His form this year has been pretty good but his body has let him down. I think he will be ready to get a win today. His clay form has been decent over the years.
Opelka has home advantage but is more comfortable on hard courts. His form this year has not been great. He really relies on his serve. He pulled out of the second round of qualifying in Miami.
Value on Haas today. We just need his body to go the distance. He starts as slight underdog on the market.
Update: Haas won 7-6, 4-6, 6-3.
