Istomin vs Mektic by Experttennis
Another interesting match , Croatian Nikola Mektic and Denis Istomin from Uzbekistan . Nikola played well so far at this tournament passing the qualifications and players like Patrui , Krstin and Antonescu . Istomin hasnt played since monte Carlo where he retired against the Slovak Gombos in qualifications R16 and I just gotta ask myself if he retired in such a match and at such a tournament the pain most have been out of this world and week later he is playing in Bucharest . Doubt that he is ready for this one and I think that Croatian stands a chance to make an uspet here if he can get his head straight . Mektic is a talented player and even though his groundstrokes and serve are more suited for hardcourts he plays his best tennis on clay and overall record of 205 wins and 120 losses confirms that .I am taking this one at pinnacle cause if Istomin retires in the second set than it will be a winning one even though you can find better odds both at bet365 and at unibet .
Good luck to followers .
