19:00 – Luczak v Marrero
Rankings are 73 and 203. They have never met.
Marrero is almost exclusively a clay court player. His ranking is a little misleading and on his favourite surface he can be dangerous.
Luczak had a good win against Starace earlier this week and hopefully can reduce the number of unforced errors that gave me a few nervous moment whilst trading that match.
On recent form Luczak has to be favourite but this is a tricky match for him. Scalping and the 15-40 are the safer ways to trade the match. I can see there being several breaks of serve before we know who is going through nto the next stage.
Update: Luczak won 6-3, 7-6.
