Sousa couldn´t manage to keep it togheter and lost after taking 1st set with ease against Dimitrov. Had some good chances in 8th game 3rd set to get a break but instead dropped his own serve in game 9 and lost 6-4 and the match.
No regrets, and will continue to go against the bulgarian. Sure he won, but it was not in convincing style. Poor 1st serve and was many times the worse player of the two. Think Sousa deserve to win and was the better player in a majority of the rallies.
Now Dimitrov will face another player in form and deeply underestimated. Have heard a lot of negative views about Becker and there is no deny that he has struggled this season and is getting closer the end of his carreer. But Becker has shown some strong efforts lately and it seems that he has found a pace in his play that he hasn´t had earlier. He doesn´t have a big serve or powerful strokes but he is playing smart and aggressively. Lost in Russia against Istomin in 3 sets, and here in KL he has won against Groth and Chardy. Very impressive with his standard.
Kind of similar factors as in Dimitrov-Sousa game, with a in-form player against a player with better top-qualities. Think the odds are way too high here on the underdog, and in the current situation I think Becker has a solid chance to win. I´m going with hcp here, but really like the odds on straight win as well.
