15:00 – Falla v Melzer
Melzer is one of the most consistent performers around. He has been involved in the latter stages of several tournaments this year.
Falla started 2010 qute well and reached the 3rd round of the Australian Open but has tailed off a little since.
Melzer wins 84% of his service games and saves 63% of break points against him.
Either back Melzer on serve or back him from the start and green up when he wins the first set.
Update: Melzer won 6-3, 6-4.
20:30 – Dulko v Bartoli
Rankings are 37 and 15. Head to heads are 3-0 to Bartoli.
Bartoli starts as a strong favourite on Betfair at 1.41 but I think this one can go either way.
Dulko’s recent form has been the better of the two but her best results were achieved on clay.
I’d expect to see a few breaks of serve here so it looks ideal for the scalping or 15-40 methods.
Update: Bartoli won 7-6, 6-4.
