Sakharov 2.04, Ivask 1.95
This will be their first meeting.
Overall stats this year favour Sakharov. He has much stronger results indoors in 2017. He has won 69% of matches. Ivashka won 56%. Sakharov also has a higher ROI.
Sakharov has not dropped a set so far this week. He has served pretty well and has been broken 3 times in his 2 matches. He won 83% of points on his first serve yesterday against Barbosa and 76% in the first round.
Ivashka has come through the qualifying rounds this week. In the first round of the main draw he came through against Marterer who was injured and retired in their third set. In the last round he beat Maxime Janvier in a third set tie break.
Value on Sakharov as slight underdog. Part stake on him at the start and add the rest if he gets broken
