They have played twice before with each player winning a match. Their most recent meeting was in May this year at the French Open. Pouille won in 4 sets. Benneteau won on an indoor court in Marseille in February 2013
Benneteau doesn’t have a good indoor record but has played well this week. He lost just 3 games to Klizan in the first round and didn’t face a single break point. In the second round he beat Dustin Brown in straight sets and was broken once from the three break chances that Brown had.
Pouille had a very tough match yesterday and beat Herbert in 3 close sets. His first serve was very effective and he won 86% of points on it. He saved the 3 break points that he faced.
I think Benneteau can take at least a set today. Lay Pouille if he breaks first or takes set 1
