Both matches are on bet365.com
BCR Open, Romania
12:00 – Luczak v Beck
Rankings are 71 and 89. They haven’t met.
Luczak is a bit of a clay specialist. He is 1.39 on betfair which is a little too low IMO.
15-40 can be used for lower ranking players on clay. If Luczak gets ahead you could let a back bet run to the end of the set.
Should be 2 straight sets.
Update: Luczak won in straight sets 7-5, 7-6
15:30 – Phau v Schuettler
Rankings are 81 and 93. Head to head is 2-0 to Scheuttler. Both those matches were on hard courts.
Shuettler has a game more suited to the surface. Phau tends to hit sporadic spells of good form and got to the semi’s in a tournament a couple of weeks ago.
Could be a tight match and, again 15-40 will work well.
I expect Schuettler to come through in 2 tight sets.
Update: 2 tie break sets but it was Phau who won through.
