Opelka vs Tallon Griekspoor (By: Khum)
Men Qualifiers, Round 2
Reilly Opelka - Tallon Griekspoor
"The young Isner", Reilly Opelka, has managed to put a very, very good claycourt preparation season this year, having a record of 11 wins out of 15 matches on dirt. He did reach semifinals in 3 consecutive challangers, in Sarasota, Savvanah and Bordeaux, even winning the last one. He took the last week to rest his body after lifting that Bordeaux trophy, which I think completes a well managed clacourt preparation heading into Roland Garros.
Now he's gonna meed Tallon Griekspoor, the best of the Griekspoor brothers.which has made a Challenger semifinal for himself, in Francavilla, one month ago. Starting there he is on a 3 matches losing streak in which he took a combined number of 12 games (obviously all straight sets losses). Actually, the young Dutch lost in straight sets 5 out of the 6 matches he has lost this year.
On the other side, 7 out of Opelka's last 8 wins on clay have come in straight sets.
I think the big serving game of the american and the current form are too much for Griekspoor and Opelka will win this one without complications.
Let's go green!
