Serra has been fighting hard with little reward this season. He has lost in 3 sets to Becker, Berdych and Davydenko in recent weeks.

 

Massu is more a clay court player and may struggle today.

 

Serra wins 78% of his service games. Either back him on serve or back him from the start to green up at the end of the first set. If you choose to back from the start you will need to have a good strategy on hand incase he loses serve. TradeShark Tennis members will find guidelines on the members site.
