Struff has won both their previous meetings. Both were in 2015 on indoor hard courts.
You’d expect Struff to have the edge but it is Mahut who has made the better start to 2016. He reached the quarter finals in Sydney. Mahut also has home advantage. He can be very inconsistent but I think he will scrape through this one.
Struff’s form hasn’t been great for a while. He has lost 2 of his 3 matches this year.
Try to back Mahut above 2.00
