Masur vs DeHeart by Marci
The two domestic representatives will clash against each other in the 1st round of this challenger in Meerbusch . Otte is 23 years old and plays great this season what is reflected on his rank and is currently on the career high 145. on ATP rankings. He first played through the futures before trying to play on higher level - challenger and he actually made couple of great results, but when I watched him play a couple of times he really didnt impress me at all with his play.
On the other side of the net is the younger Masur who is 22 years old and is currently in the 225th position at the ATP rankings and he had an excellent first part of the season indoors, but then for some reason he started to loss so he lost in qualifying for the last 7 tournaments and I think it is time to stop the bad form because he played best tennis on the clay through his career and he defends a large number of points this season with semifinals of this tournament last season so it is sure that this conditions are going in his favour and well Otte is an ideal opponent for him.
They played 4 times so far, and every time Masur won, first time at the beginning of last season at the Future Hall in Schwieberdingen with 6-4 6-4, second in the April last season also on futures this time in Madrid on hard at 3 sets, then he won 3rd time in this tournament in 1st round last season with 6-3 6-0 and last timehe won at start of this season at the Nussloch futures in 3 sets, and apparently he know how to win against his countrymen, so I see value in this odds and will try for Masur to win.
