Sam Groth is serving well at this tournament and on this kind of surface with Lu out of the tournament I dont see who can beat him . Bhambri is a solid player and a player in form but he doesnt have a very good serve and I think that he will have a lot of troubles trying to put some pressure on the Australians when he has the opening shot . Sam yet has to lose a set at this tournament and the way he is playing and serving at this tournament there is a good chance that he might not lose it at all .
His biggest threats for the title were Ryan Harrison and Yen Hsun Lu rankin wise and quality wise if you ask me . Now with both of them out of the tournament he has a good chance to pick up some points . He hasnt had too many troubles so far beating players like Zhang , Smith and Ito in two sets and whats even more inspiring is that he is 4:0 in the breakers at this tournament and no player got more than 4 points in the deciding game .To me he is an obvious pick here , has the tools that he needs and in this kind of form both playing wise and serving wise I dont see who can beat him
Bhambri is a youngster from India , a very talented all around player who was pretty good back in junior days but just wasnt able to adjust to this stage that well so far . He is mostly a baseliner who is pretty good and pretty strong of both wings , his serve is nothing speciall while his movement is very good . He isnt as powerfull player as Sam is and I think that on this kind of surface the player who has more power in his game wins .
All in all , Bhambri is a bigger underdog in this one than the odds are pointing out ,he got his confidence booster playing on some futures level tournaments and even won one of those but this is a different kind of oponnent and a different style of player . I think that Sam will be the one dictating the points both from the baseline starting with his return and on serve probably using that power and charging forward to the volley . I am trying my luck with Sam in straight sets , on 9/10 I would probably take him to win but considering how dominant he has been on this tournament I think that this one is almost as likely as the win .
