Berlocq vs Nalbandian by FairPlayBet
First match for both players here on ATP Buenos Aires in Argentina. Both are coming after Sao Paulo where Nalbandian has played in the final and was not able to give serious resist to Rafael Nadal but in matches until final, Nalbandian has showed very decent form.
On the other side Berlocq in Sao Paolo also lost to Nadal only he was much more serious threat for Spanish player. Berlocq there managed to take one set from Nadal. They met each other in QF of Sao Paolo so Berlocq had two days more to rest before this new tour. But this should not be crucial since IMO three days how much has passed since final in Sao Paolo was enough time also for Nalbandian to recover. So, Nalbandian should be fresh too and should be able to play again on high level, of course if this is his wish. And I don't see why it would be different and I doubt Nalbandian will start Buenos Aires unmotivated when he will play in front of home crowd. After all the same as Berlocq.
In my opinion this will be very close match. Three sets are very possible. Line 21.5 is good for over games choice. IMO this should be at least 22 if not 22.5 games.
In previous head to head Nalbandian won all three meetings. Berlocq only once managed to take set. But now it should be much more tied, after all at this point Berlocq and Nalbandian are pretty much equal with form and current ATP standings shows this best (77th against 78th).
