Carreno-Busta vs Kuznetsov by Marci
Another match from me from ATP Bastad and similar story to other pick, First seeded Pablo Careno Busta (16.) is playing best tennis of his career and it was stopped with injury in QF of Roland Garros against Nadal. This willl be his first match after 6 weeks and he could not get much worse opponent than Kuznetsov (88.). He is much better than his rank says, but did not have best season on hard surface even tho he is better on it than on clay.
Kuznetsov showed that he is not the one you want to face in early rounds of ATP 250 where he in last 2 tournaments has beaten likes of Fognini, Harrison and Ramos and when you see that h2h is 2-0 on clay for Kuznetsov (2012. and 2014.) everyone is betting on underdog, but I am standing firmly with Pablo for whom I am sure that is fully recovered and ready to win his first title in Bastad. I actually do prefer tennis of Kuznetsov much more than Pablo just shooting ball over net, but on clay Busta will held his ground-
