Berrer vs Ward by Lujav
Challenger Manchester, round of 16, grass, the match between Michael Berrer and Alexander Ward. This will be their second meeting, they played in Munchen 3 year ago, Berrer was better with 76 63. Berrer is 35 years old, currently 112th player on ATP rank. He started season with not so great result, lost in qualifications on ATP Doha and Australian Open. After that played in QF on ATP Montpellier and ch Bergamo. The best result is the title on challenger Leon. After that title he started play very bad, only two victories from seven matches. On this tournament he started with easy victories against Li in two sets what was expected. He has excellent service, but grass isn't his favourite surface, 30/33 in career is the proof of that. Alexander Ward is here at home, he is 253th player on atp rank. This season is currently excellent for him, 28 victories from 37 matches are very good result. Before this tournament he played in the semifinal on challenger Bangkok what means that good form is here and he showed it in the first round here, he was better than Falla in three sets and made a big surprise. Berrer is maybe better player, but he is very limited with only great serve. Ward showed excellent performance in the first round against Falla so I hope that he can repeat it today so my prediction is that Ward will win.
