18:00 – Lapentti v Korolev
Rankings are 95 and 49. They haven’t met before.
Lapentti prefers clay courts. At the end of last season he reached a couple of finals on the Challenger tour (on clay) but has yet to take his first win this season.
Korolev has made a great start to the season with victories over Querrey, Berdych and Kohlschreiber.
This should be a straight sets win for Korolev. Either back hiom on serve or back him from the start.
Update:Not sure what Korolev was doing in the second set. He won 6-2, 1-6, 6-1.
