Cuevas made big surprise in the first round, big victory against Berdych in two sets. Hard court isn't his favourite surface, this year four wins in 12 matches, nothing special, but this victory against Berdych - I don't know what happened with Berdych. Karlovic was better than Garcia-Lopez in also two sets. Karlovic plays very good this season, currently isn't in good form, but he is full ready for this tournament, very motivated. Service is his the strongest side, very good game on net, return isn't so good, but Cuevas hasn't fantastic service and I think that Karlovic will have a lot of chance on service of Cuevas. Cuevas is player who like a long rally, he has very good one-handed backhand but I think that it will not be enough to win in this match. Karlovic and his game isn't rhythmic what is the big problem for Cuevas. Cuevas will not be able to find rhythm and that is a big advantage for Karlovic. My prediction is that Karlovic will win in two sets because he is better player on this surface, with fantastic service, the rest is irrelevant.
