21:00 – Souza v Cuevas
Rankings are 111 and 62. Head to heads are 1-0 to Souza.
Both players are primarily clay courters but Cuevas is much better than his opponent on hard courts.
Cuevas starts at 1.37 on Betfair. I’d prefer that to be a little higher so may wait before backing. If you can get him at over 1.50 I think its a better entry.
Souza has been on the Challenger tour exclusively and has only had 1 week on hard courts this year. He did make the quarter finals that week but hasn’t faced anyone of Cuevas’ quality.
One way traffic here I would think.
Update: Firstly let me apologise for my error on this game. We haven’t had a claycourt tournament for a while and I had gone into autopilot. This tournament is on clay which changed the players chances. I would still have had Cuevas as favourite.
In the end it was a tight match with Souza winning 6-4, 7-5
