19:00 – Andreev c Clement
Rankings are 102 and 68. Head to heads are 1-0 to Andreev but that was 5 years ago.
Andreev reached the semi finals here last year so will be motivated to do well again to protect his ranking points. Since 2005 he has reached at least the quarter finals every time except 2006.
They are using some indoor courts to help catch up from the rain delays of the weekend. That will help Andreev as Clement gets worse the slower the court is.
Clement has lost 12 of his last 13 matches against big servers.
Back Andreev on serve.
Update: Andreev won 7-6, 6-3.
