Hong vs Vesely
Odds are jumping up and down for this match depending on the bookie you're looking at. Pinnacle still gives a decent 2.00 on a Hoang victory and I think its very profitable.
Vesely might be the favorite here on certain places simply because of name recognition and ranking, he is ranked 149th while Vesely sits at 89. Vesely is obviously the more experienced player with more matches under his belt but his best performances against formidable opposition are always on clay. He is in my opinion quite average on hardcourts and his stats of 74/58 on the surfaces do reflect that when compared to 182/94 on clay. This is his first match since October.
Hoang is an upcoming top 100 player, he finished 2018 in great fashion with a win in Eckental and he has a big advantage over Vesely here in Pune in that he has qualified for this tournament and already acklimatized himself to the surface and conditions. He completely dominated Martin 6-1 6-2 and then defeated Monteiro in three.
