12:00 – Becker v Tipsarevic
Rankings are 48 and 51. They haven’t played before.
Becker is the defending champion and is in great form. He reached the semi final in Germany last week where he lost to eventual winner Hewitt.
He wins 80% of his service games.
Tipsarevic hasn’t been having much success recently but has found some form this week. He may find it dificult to deal with the momentum that Becker has built up. Tipsarevic can play fantastic tennis but has lacked consistency over recent months.
Back Becker on serve.
Update: Tipsarevic won 6-7, 6-3, 6-4.
