Movistar Open – Friday

20:00 – Zeballos v Starace

Rankings are 108 and 49. Head to heads are 1-0 to Starace.

Starace showed yesterday that he is up for the challenge this week. He started 2010 badly so has a chance to gain some ranking points here.

Zeballos is certainly more of a threat on clay than on any other surface and he held serve 78% on clay last year. Starace was slightly better at 82%.

Zeballos has yet to lose a set and beat Nalbandian in the last round although Nalbandian isn’t in great shape at the moment.

Starace is at 1.52 which is a tempting price to back at from the start. Alternatively back him on serve. If backing from the start green up after the first set as Zeballos is capable of a comeback.

I’d expect Starace to win this.

Update: Zeballos put up more of a fight than i expected but Starace came through 6-7, 6-3, 7-6.
