Cuevas vs Laaksonen by Marci
In 2nd round of Bastad we will see a match between Henri Laaksonen (100.) and 3rd seed Pablo Cuevas (29.). I think that this is great opportunity as it is higher odd on Unibet then on other sites for almost 0.20 and truth be told odd is even raising for some reason, probably becuase this will be first match for him since French Open where he lost in straight sets against Fernando Verdasco.
Pablo won this tournament back in 2014 and year after he lost in semis against Paire who later won that tournament.Laaksonen is ordinary challenger player who enjoys hard (especially indoors) more than clay even tho he is solid on clay and hpnestly do not stand a chance against a player like Cuevas who after 2 losses at start of season won ATP Sao Paulo and have a score of 14-5 (on clay) including a semi finals in Masters in Madrid.
That he didnt miss whole grass season including Wimbledon this would be no brainer easy win for Cuevas, but this way odds are a bit higher what is good for me because i believe that he is fully ready for this tournament and this is just a gift from Unibet.
He said on twitter Lamentablemente me voy a perder Wimbledon, motivos físicos, pero nada grave x suerte. En estos días empiezo a prepararme para Bastad what in free translate means that he will be missing Wimbledon, but it isnt anything serious and he started to prepare for ATP Bastad, that was 20 days ago and I am sure that he recovered and will show his undeniable quality over Laaksonen.
