13:30 – Devvarman v Schuettler
Rankings are 126 and 85. The head to head, technically is 1-0 to Devvarman but that was in this tournament last year and Shuettler pulled out before the match.
Devverman came up with some very good results last season. He plays mainly on the Challenger tour but has the ability to be higher than his currernt ranking.
Schuettler was very inconsistent last year but can play some excellent tennis if he believes in himself. Very much a self doubter under pressure.
As the prices start fairly even with Davvarman a slight favourite at 1.78 you could wait for a break of serve before backing and still get a nice profit.
Alternatively, wait to see how the first few games go and if either player is holding serve easily then back them on their service games.
Based on last season’s form Devvarman is my slight favourite to take this one.
