Karlovskiy vs Rodionov (By: Iniestaone)
Second round from the Zhuhai challenger between Karlovskiy (#272) and Rodionov (#194)
I am backing Rodionov to win this despite what I have seen from him in his last two matches has been awful. After his Davis Cup losses to Jarry and Garin in the beginning of February, he didn't play at all until the end of the month when he went to Yokohama and did two terrible matches. First he defeated 522nd ranked Perez-Sans 7-6 0-6 6-4 as a 1.18 favorite and then he was dismantled in two by Yang as a 1.30 favorite. Overall he is 6/6 this season.
Karlovskiy is 3/5 and I don't really like what I see from him, he's a tall guy with quite a decent serve and he doesn't really cause upsets and win as an underdog. All his win this year have been as him priced as a favorite.
I think Rodionov will eventually come back to the form he had in the beginning of the season when he performed great in the Australian Open quals and Rennes. its very likely that the Yokohama challenger went bad for him because it had been a while since he played and I have a feeling that is ready to perform better now and he is facing a player with a very bad return game so he will be able to win plenty of points on his serve. There is no doubt that Rodionov is the better player here.
