Galovic vs Masur (By: Iniestaone)
Cherbourg first round match between Galovic (#224) and Masur (#259)
I think Galovic is a lot more trustworthy at the moment than Masur and I am backing him to win this first round match. He is 4/4 this year after playing eight good matches. His only two set loss came to Gunneswaran in the Aus Open qualifiers, 4-6 4-6. Other than that he has managed to stay close in his matches, he has taken big wins such as the one vs Janvier in Rennes and his most recent loss is a three set loss to Bublik in Budapest and Bublik went on to win the title there.
Masur is not playing nearly as well right now, he has started the season with 2 wins and 5 losses. He is not a good indoor player, he is short and has short reach and the majority of his indoor wins have been on the Future circuit. Galovic however is a tall big server who thrives on fast surfaces, and he has even beaten Masur two out of two times on slower clay surfaces. Usually I wouldn't back a player who had to travel within the last three days and I think thats why the odds are going up on Galovic but I still can't see Masur winning this considering what I've seen from both these players so far this season
