Wimbledon – Week 1 – Thursday

12:00 – Fischer v Bellucci

Rankings are 164 and 24. Head to head is 1-0 to Fischer.

Both players are probably more comfortable on clay courts. Bellucci has a consistent serve and wins 76% of his service games.

Fischer has a decent serve but is a little weaker when returning. We could see a tie break or two today.

Bellucci has improved his overall consistency over the last 12 months and I expect him to take this match.

Back Bellucci on serve.

Update: Or maybe three tie breaks!  Bellucci won 6-7, 7-6, 7-6, 6-2.



17:00 Petzschner v Kubot

Rankings are 41 and 53. Thay haven’t played before.

This is the first time in 5 years that Kubot has won a match at Wimbledon.

Petzschner is in great form and reached the semi final in Germany last week where he lost to Federer.

Petzschner wins 81% of his service games and shouldn’t have much problem gettig past Kubot.

Back Petzschner on serve or back him from the start to green up after the first set.

Update: Much closer than I expected. Backing Petzschner from the start to green up ater the first set worked well. Petzschner won 6-4, 3-6, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2.
