Pella vs Munar J. (By: Iniestaone)
Quarterfinal match from ATP Buenos Aires between Pella (#50) and Munar (#77)
Today I am backing Munar to defeat Pella in Buenos Aires. I caught some of Pella's match against Mayer yesterday and I wasn't impressed by his win at all, Mayer was being his old self mixing big serves with tons of unforced errors and Pella won 6-4 1-6 7-6 after a tiebreak where Mayer's worst tendencies appeared for possibly the first time in the match. Prior to that Pella defeated currently unranked Cerundolo (was around 570 last year) in three sets as 1.18 favorite.
Munar has looked great in Buenos Aires so far, and its true that he has had the margins with him quite a bit: he faced Delbonis in the first round after losing to him in Cordoba just four days prior and he won in three sets in a match where Delbo hit the net a lot but it was Munar's solid baseline play that forced those errors. After that he won against Fognini in three sets in what was a third set that is up for debate as to how it should be interpreted. Fognini was serving at 5-4 and had 30-0, and what followed was Munar taking twelve straight points to win the match. One can easily attribute this to Fognini being an unstable player but Munar's consistency shouldn't be taken away from him as he showed great mental strenght to make all that happen. I backed Delbonis to defeat him in Cordoba and he did, but Munar had 12 breakpoints in that match and didn't convert any of them which is something very rare on clay courts.
I think Munar is having a better Buenos Aires campaign than Pella and I consider him to be a better player overall so I am backing him to win this outright
