Eubanks vs Giraldo (By: Iniestaone)
Qualifying final for ATP Houston between Eubanks (#150) and Giraldo (#230)
Eubanks is having a great season so far, he is on a career high ranking at 150 and this year has been transitional for him as he played mainly challengers last year while in 2019 he has put in plenty of good performances in ATPs. I think he has a good chance of defeating Giraldo here, he is a very tall guy whose game is centered around his serve and the courts in Houston aren't the usual types of clay courts, they are very fast and servers benefit from this surface. Eubanks defeated Clarke in his qualifying semifinal with good numbers, 6-3 6-4
Giraldo is having a good season as well number wise as he is 9/5 but looking closer at his wins he hasn't done anything outstanding, he won the matches he was supposed to win and aside from one Davis Cup match against Ymer and his most recent match in the Houston qualifiers (6-4 6-4 against Ward as a 1.28 favorite), they've all been in challengers
I think Eubanks will benefit a lot from this surface, he will get plenty out of his serve and Giraldo's mediocre serve will make it possible for him to play an aggressive tennis on return. It won't take a lot for Eubanks to get the win here
