Almagro vs Kohlschreiber by Iniestaone

Almagro
VS
Kohlschreiber
Almagro is starting the year 2017 ranked 44th, he has been constantly climbing since his injury ridden 2014 season and when he returned in 2015 he was ranked 174th. Meanwhile, Kohlschreiber is still hanging onto a good ranking of 32.

 

I like Almagro here because I think the bookies most likely partially based their odds on the rankings and Almagro surely should not be ranked below Kohlschreiber. He will surpass him this season for sure, its only a matter of when considering how he climbed the ladder in 2015 and 2016. Also, we have to go way back to Halle 2016 to find a match where Kohlschreiber defeated an opponent that is as good as Almagro or better: his 2-1 win vs Karlovic. He had a bad hardcourt season last year, he was 5/7 (Almagro was 10/8) and he usually doesn't go very far in this tournament. This is the fourth time he has been here and he only managed to take 1 win per attempt the first two years.

 

Almagro enters this match after defeating a Lorenzi that had a strong ending to last season in three sets. In average, he was a 1.75 favorite and it was a tight match that lasted two and a half hours. Almagro convinced me that he is here to produce good tennis and keep grinding and thats why I'm backing him here.
