Fabbiano vs Herbert (By: Iniestaone)

First round match from ATP Marrakech between Fabbiano (#94) and Herbert (#50)

I think its possible that Herbert is being overpriced here because of the way he started the season, he was really great up until mid February but he has lost five of his last six and four of those losses were in straight sets. He is in bad form now and I don't see him having a chance against Fabbiano on the extremely slow clay in Morrocco

Fabbiano also started the season better than he is doing now, he has lost three in a row to Ivashka, Verdasco and Giron but he took sets from all of them

I think Fabbiano has a big surface advantage here as he is much better on clay than Herbert is and especially this type of very slow clay that is hard for poor baseliners to play on which Herbert is, I think we'll see Herbert attempt his serve volley style here but I just can't see him winning on that against a quick player like Fabbiano who is very agile and catches the extra ball. Had they played on a fast surface I wouldn't go for this bet at this stage but Herbert is just a very poor clay player and its worth going against him when he faces a player who is both mobile and better from the baseline
