Del Bonis vs Granollers by Tennisguy
Delbonis is ranked 43 and Granollers 36. They have met once before in a match that took place last year at the Gstaad ATP tournament on clay which was won by Granollers 6-2, 7-5.
Both these players have performed well so far in this tournament but in my opinion Granollers impressed me more. On his way to the semifinal he defeated Albert Ramos-Vinolas 6-3, 7-6(3) and Pablo Carreno-Busta 6-7(4), 6-3, 6-0. He really showed his fighting spirit in his previous match against Carreno-Busta after being down a set. Granollers played incredibly well in the second and third set and really didn't give his opponent any chances. He only offered his opponent 3 break point chances and saved 2 of them.
Delbonis has defeated the following players to get to the semifinal stage : Gilles Simon 6-4, 6-4, Filip Peliwo 6-2, 6-7(5), 6-4 and Victor Hanescu 7-6(5), 6-3. In his last match against Hanescu he had some problems in the first set but fortunately for him the romanian player lost his way and couldn't take advantage. He actually didn't perform so well and was kind of bad on his service offering his opponent 9 break point chances from which he saved 7. It's true he saved a lot of break points but that's mostly because Hanescu didn't play well enough in the important moments rather than Delbonis raising his level. If the argentinian has this same kind of performance against Granollers he will surely not be so lucky.
I think Granollers can definitely win here and the odds look very nice for him. He already has a win on clay against Delbonis and a quite easy won so I really don't see why he can't get another one here.
