Youzhny vs Olivo by Iniestaone
Aside from the fact that Olivo defeated Youzhny on German clay last year, he is playing the best tennis of his life and he should be backed vs unstable players like Youzhny.
Olivo's first match in Chennai was vs Ruud and he won 7-6 6-2. It was a bigger victory than it looks because Ruud, despite his low ranking, young age and lack of experience, is a very skillful player who could beat several top 100 players. Olivo was however excellent in that encounter: not only did he not get broken once, but he didn't let Ruud have a single chance to break.
Youzhy was given an easier opponent in the first round, Myneni, and he won in two easy sets. The opponent is a whole another one this time around and I really don't understand why the bookies have Olivo as the underdog when he and Youzhy are going in opposite ways in their career, Olivo impressed more in the first round and Olivo defeated him last year.
