This is their first meeting.
Basilashvili reached the semi final last week in Sofia and has gone 1 better this week in Memphis. Great start to the year for him.
Harrison won the title in the Dallas Challenger 2 weeks ago. He has not dropped a set so far in this tournament and even Donald Young who had been serving really well could not really trouble him. Harrison has won his last 9 matches in straight sets.
I think this one will go to a deciding set but have to favour Harrison to get the win. The crowd will help him too. Initial value is on Basilashvili and the 1st set could easily go to a tie break.
Back Harrison if he faces break point. Basilashvili was awful last night on converting break chances. He took just 1 of the 10 he had in their opening set.
