BMW Open – Saturday

12:00 – Petzschner v Youzhny

 

Rankings are 45 and 15. Head to heads are 1-0 to Youzhny which was also on clay but 3 years ago.

 

Petzschner has had some good results recently and this week has beaten Benneteau and Berdych.

 

Youzhny made a slow start to his clay court season but has been in impressive form this week winning his 3 matches very easily.

 

Both players are very reliable on serve but Youzhny starts as favourite. He wins 78% of his service games and Petzschner 81%.

 

Back Youzhny on serve and if Petzschner is holding comortably then back him on serve too.

 

Update: Tight match but Youzhny always seems to have a slight edge. He won 7-5, 7-6.

14:00 – Cilic v Baghdatis

 

Rankings are 11 and 31. Head to heads are 1-0 to Cilic which was on a hard court.

 

Cilic came through a tough match yesterday against Almagro. He won in 3 sets.

 

Baghdatis had a tough first round match where he was taken to 3 sets but he has come through the next 2 rounds fairly comfortably.

 

Cilic starts as favourite but this could be a close match. Back Cilic on serve. He wins 85% of his service games.

 

Baghdatis started the season serving badly but he has made great improvements and has brought his service games won up to 81%. If he starts the match holding comfortably then he can also be backed on serve.

 

If Baghdatis is on form he has a better game for clay but this really could go either way.

 

Update: Cilic made a slow start and lost the first set. He then took control and his serve started to be more effective.

 

Cilic won 3-6, 6-2, 6-3.
