Albot leads their previous meetings 2-1. Their last match was in September 2013 and was won by Albot on a hard court in 2 sets. Jaziri won his match on a hard court in September 2012. He also won in straight sets.
Jaziri reached the semi finals last year. He has had limited success recently though reached the third round in Washington in July.
Albot came through the qualifying rounds this week. His good weeks on hard courts this year have been in Challengers.
Both can play well on hard courts. I think we see 3 sets but I favour Jaziri to have a little more motivation with all those points to defend. Back him above 2.10
