Brkic vs Giustino
1st round of Banja Luka challenger in Bosnia on clay with hometown player Tomislav Brkic ranked 313 against the Italian Giustino ranked 198. My pick here is for Brkic to win at 2.00 odds on bet365.
The Bosnian number 4 has been struggling to make a name for himself and never reached more then the 202 ranked position. But he is still only 27 years old and a good run in a challenger can change is career.
He's a clay court specialist with a 57-22 record this season , mostly on ITF tour , but he just won a ITF tournament Sunday.
The match was supposed to play on Tuesday but due to rain delay , the match has been postponned to Wednesday and that's good news for him so he could have another day resting from a long week.
While for Giustino he's also a clay court specialist with 28-21 record this season but for him it's been really tough to find wins outside of the Italy. He does have a decent record when playing at home but when he goes on to play ITF or Challengers in other countries , he really struggles.
And to be fair to him , he's not the only Italian on tour who struggles with that. The reason for that is perhaps the italian clay and italian challengers are really unique , it's the same with the south american playing at home for examples.
He's 3-13 this season away from Italy , in Challengers and ATP's. Really really poor. This is a good draw for Brkic at home , confident from an ITF win and in front of the crowd that will support him.
I'm pretty sure Brkic has this tournament is in mind since couple of months as he's mostly on the ITF tour and I think he'll get on top eventually and win the match! Good luck
