Guido Pella 1.80, Philipp Kohlschreiber 2.12
Starting at 10am
Kohlschreiber won their only previous meeting. That was at the Olympics in Rio in 2016. He won on a hard court in 3 sets.
Pella has better overall results in 2019. Kohlschreiber has better long term indoor results. Pella has been a little better in 2019.
Pella only faced 1 break point in the last match against Nicolas Jarry. He reached the quarter finals indoors in Antwerp last month beating Gojowczyk and Soo Woo Kwon.
Kohlschreiber has had a poor season. He dropped down to Challenger level in September and reached a semi final and quarter final on clay. He has not been beyond a first round indoors in 2019.
Pella having played a match on these courts will help him. Germany are more likely to have the bigger support as its a shorter trip for their fans although expect the Argentina supporters to be very loud too. I think it will be tight and I give Pella the edge. Lay Kohlschreiber around 1.65 to 1.70 and remove the liability at 2.30. Lay the set 1 winner.
Update: We didn’t get the entry price in the first set as Pella was much stronger. The lay after set 1 worked out well as Kohlschreiber levelled the match with a single break of serve.
In the deciding set Kohlschreiber broken in the first game and held on to take the match.
Kohlschreiber won 1-6, 6-3, 6-4.
