Gonzales M / Monaco vs Huey-Kontinen by Beatle
ATP Kuala Lumpur doubles
Santiago Gonzalez/Petschner vs Huey/Kontinen (2)
I really think I am stealing this one from my favourite betshoot tipster Khum. I hope you won't get angry at me, mate. Really hoping to start the month on a positive note.
I see a huge value on this selection since Huey/Kontinen look like a really solid pair that is just starting their cooperation. The fact that they won St. Petersburg Open last week speaks for themselves. That was their very first tournament they played together and they managed to defeat 4 pretty solid pairs, 3 of which consisted of players who play doubles only and specialize in doubles. Anyway, they face Santiago Gonzalez/Philip Petzschner today and I must mention that german did not play a lot of tennis lately due to injury. He was struggling to find some good form and arrived here in KUL to play qualies singles and doubles. He lost his qualifying match against in-form Mischa Zverev. With only 15 matches played this year in singles and with only 5 victories, you really can't say that Petzschner is in good shape. He used to be a good player and he still is a pretty good doubles player. However with S.Gonzalez as his partner I truly believe in Huey/Kontinen win.
Number 2 seeds defeated a CH level pair Daniell M. / Demoliner M. yesterday. After losing the first set, they found necessary energy and timing and squeezed past through to the next round. I liked their returns more than their serving. They look like a very intelligent couple and I believe that they will win today.
Hopefully no surprises. Huey/Kontinen should feel only better after their first victory here in KUL.
