This is their first meeting.
Gimeno Traver’s route to the quarter final is the easiest money he ever made. In the first qualifying round he beat 183rd ranked Clezar in straight sets. He was underdog in that match due to him being in poor form. In the last qualifying round Mathieu retired in the second set. In the main draw Monaco quit before the end of the opening set and Fognini retired when a set up in the last round. I wonder how Pella is feeling?
Pella ended last year strongly on the clay and he has performed well this weeek. He beat isner in a third set tie break in the first round and out played Giraldo yesterday.
Pella should take this though Gimeno Traver’s form is hard to assess.
Wait for higher entry on Pella. Anything over 1.60 is fine.
