12:00 – Falla v Malisse
Rankings are 65 and 75. Head to heads are 1-1.
Malisse reached the quarter finals in the Aegon Championships ( is there anyone who DIDN’T get to the quarter finals there?? I seem to be typing that a lot)
Falla beat Ljubicic in the last round but was pretty awful. He was lucky that Ljubicic was even worse. Under pressure his serve started to crumble especially in the first set where you could almost see him shaking.
Neither posts amazing figures on serve but I am strongly favouring Malisse here. Scalping is probably the best strategy to use and if Malisse breaks serve I would expect him to close out the set.
It should be a straight sets win for Malisse.
Update: Malisse won 6-3, 3-6, 6-3.
