Valkusz vs Rosol
Davis Cup action with the world group play offs and this match with Hungary hosting Czech Republic. Valkuzs ranked 271 faces Rosol ranked 185 and my pick is the veteran Rosol at 1.83 here. This tennis match is playing on clay , in Hungary.
Following 2 really bad seasons , Rosol has gone back to ITF and Challenger level and it has been a success for him. He's now back in the top 200 and holds a really dominant 37/16 record on Clay , mostly Challenger and ATP. He recently picked his first ATP Challenger victory of the season and was really solid last week in Genoa where he reached the QF after beating Lorenzi.
His opponent today , Valkusz , a next gen talent. He's a clay court specialist and holds a 37/9 record on clay , but mostly on ITF at the difference of Rosol. However, Valkusz was holding a 1-5 record on challenger level this season until last month where he managed to reached the FINAL of Cordenons Challenger and that really came out of nowhere ! Since then he won an ITF , but has not played in 2 weeks now. Valkusz makes his debut in Davis Cup here and in a 5set match as Hungary decided to leave their best players out.
Rosol is going to play his 21th match of his career representing his country. holding a 11-9 record , winning twice this competition. He's back in great form and always is highly motivated when playing for his country. He's got too much power and experience for the young Hungarian here. I can't see anything else then a Rosol win here! GL
