SAP Open – Tuesday

21:45 – Raonic v Malisse

Rankings are 84 and 45. Head to heads are 1-0 to Malisse but that was over 2 years ago.

With Raonic in the form that he has been in Malisse will have to be at the top of his game to stand a chance. Malisse’s level often drops considerably during matches and has lost 4 in a row on indoor hard courts ( also 4 out of 5 in North America)

Raonic wins 86% of his service games to Malisse’s 78%. Malisse is a frustrating player to have your green on as he can relax too soon in a game and go from 40-0 to deuce. Raonic’s serve gets the job done quickly.

Malisse is slight favourite on Betfair at 1.76 . Either lay Malisse from the start or lay him on Raonic’s service games ( same as backing Raonic on serve).

I expect a tight first set. In their previous match both sets were settled in tie breaks.

Update: Raonic won 6-3, 6-4.
