This sould be a derby match, getting by all the fact, momental form, way of playing on clay etc. But something is strange for me. Why Bolleli is a favourite here? The italian player is one of the most unconstatned players on ATP tour, most of the time durring the season is ranked +100 (at the moment is 111th). This guys have potential to be top 50 but he never use his quality. Is coming on clay after title in Recanati chalenger at home on hard court. Only 1 day rest, changing the surface .. This is not to much for Bolleli ? This season have 17/11, most of the wins over wikness clay court players, which is reality. Have great serve but on clay that doesn’t helps. Expect most of the points to be in position to defend. While, the left-hander Zeballos, like all the previous seasons is on his top level part from the season because the argentinian love clay courts tournaments. It’s not in great shape, but still have something to say. Unlucky defeat in the first round in Hamburg from Mayer in thriller match where have to many chances to finish the game in straight sets but was defeated. Now have chance to correct something. He has game for clay, knows how to upset even top player. Left hand top spin shoot knows to make a lot of problems for opponents, giving advantage for clear shoots and most of the points to be finished like winners. Big prize, big value. This must to be used, IMO.
