12:00 – Lu v Baghdatis
Rankings are 74 and 103. They have never met.
Lu hasn’t had a good run recently whereas Baghdatis has won 2 tournaments on the Challenger tour so his confidece will be high. When he has that confidence he can give most players a run for their money.
So going with the form player, back Baghdatis on serve. I would expect 2 straight sets.
Update: Expect the unexpected today. Some strange results. This one went to 3 sets with Baghdatis winning in a 3rd set tie break 4-6, 6-3, 7-6.
