10:00 – Stakhovsky v Bolelli
Rankings are 69 and 110. Head to heads are 2-1 to Bolelli.
Stakhovsky has quite a big, consistent serve. He hasn’t had a great start to the season although has been unlucky to meet some big names in the early rounds.
Bolelli just hasn’t found his form this year and I can see him struggling in this match.
Back Stakhovsky on serve.
Update: Closer than I thought it would be. Stakhovsky started well and backing him on serve worked well. However in the second he lost serve and Bolelli was able to close out the set.
Stakhovsky regained control in the decider to take the match.
He won 6-3, 3-6, 6-4.
