Mukund vs Cem Ilkel (By: Iniestaone)

First round match from the Taipei challenger between Mukund (#264) and Ilkel (#272)

I think Mukund is going to win this opener against Ilkel, he is in much better form this year as he is 6/7 and his most recent matches in China have been really good, he defeated He in the first round in Shenzhen and lost to Baghdatis in a close match and in Zhangijagang he won against an in form Crepatte in two sets before another narrow loss, this time to Bourgue. In both his losses he was a big underdog, over 5 times the money against Baghdatis and 3.50 against Bourgue

While Mukund has spent the entire season so far playing in Asia, Ilkel has been traveling from Australia to Europe and now to Taiwan and its always an advantage when you don't have to fly so much and switch between different types of climates and other circumstances

They played in Karshi last year where Ilkel won in three sets but it was a short period when Ilkel was really good, he sometimes has these short spurs of good tennis but they never last long. He is 3/8 this year and he did some good matches in Saint Brieuc in late March where he defeated Artunedo Martinavarro and lost to Moutet in three but I don't expect him to bring that kind of tennis to Taiwan, it would be an anomaly to see him perform that well in two tournaments in a row especially considering how awful he has been playing this season

Mukund is the better player here, he is ranked at his highest at #264 and I expect him to win this as he has so many advantages over Ilkel ahead of this match
