Garin vs Istomin by Scully99
Garin is ranked 211th in the world and is coming into this match after a 2:0 win against 235th ranked Karatsev who has been in pretty poor form of late and Garin took advantage. However, that is only the 4th game in 3 years that Garin has played on hard court as he is very much a clay court man having played over 100 matches in comparison. This includes not playing a single hard court game at all last year so I think it is fair to say he is not accomplished on this type of court at all and could really struggle against Istomin.
Istomin is ranked 121st and is a player who plays mainly on hard court but is well adapted to all surface types. His first round match was against a much easier opponent but he still dispatched of him. He is currently massively in form from last year having only lost one of his last 10. This includes Duck Hee Lee(149), Dodig(147) and Lacko(122) so good results as well.
I believe that Istomin will carry on his form and should be able to dispatch of a player who is nearly 100 places lower ranked and not used to this surface whatsoever.
