Nicolaas Scholtz vs Janis Podzus by Tennisguy
This is a semifinal match from the Turkey F45 futures tournament between Nicolaas Scholtz from South Africa and Janis Podzus from Latvia.
I am quite surprised that Podzus has such big odds on the win. I say this because he just recently defeated Scholtz last week in a very one sided match that ended 6-3, 6-2. Podzus is a left handed player and that really seemed to bother Scholtz in their encounter last week and considering such a short time has passed from that match I doubt that he will handle himself any better this time. I guess the real reason why Scholtz is considered to be the favorite is the fact that he is the better ranked player but in my opinion at this level that isn't really the decisive factor in judging a match.
Podzus defeated Jankovic, Eremin and Fatic. His first round win against Jankovic was a very good one because he defeated one of the favorites to win this tournament and that probably made him play better along the way. I think that if he continues to play as good as he did in his matches so far he is going to end up with the win today as well.
The value is to good here and considering Podzus won quite easily last week against Scholtz I really consider this to be a very good pick that needs to be taken.
