Donaldson vs Muller by Patyi
The young American Jared Donaldson has good serve and good forehand combination. He has already played two qualification match so far in this tournament, he won against Rajeev Ram and home player John Patrick Smith.
Gilles Müller has very good, tricky lefty serve and his net play is world class. His ground game is limited: his top spin backhand is terrible, his slice is useful and he has powerful but unstable forehand because his weaker footwork. I think his groundstrokes won't be enough sharp in his first match of the year so I think he will be weak in rallies in first set. He will need time to catch the rhythm.
Müller's serve is hard to break but he will suffer when the ball will be in play against young American so I predict a tight first set.
