Malek Jaziri vs Haase (By: Iniestaone)
First round match from ATP Marrakech between Jaziri (#65) and Haase (#62)
Two players in quite bad form face off here and I believe the coinflip nature of this match makes a bet on Jaziri on almost three times the money worth it.
Jaziri is 3/9 so far this season but he did well against Djere, Ferrer and Cuevas as he challenged all three of them. The only time I think Jaziri is trustworthy is when he plays in North Africa or the Middle East as he is a Tunisian Muslim himself and immensely popular in these parts, he produces some great results when he plays in front of these crowds. Last year he reached the semis in Dubai, the quarterfinals in Marrakech and the finals in Istanbul.
Haase is the better clay court player between these two but he isn't in good form either, he is 7/9 and has no wins that actually stand out. Unlike Jaziri he has barely played on clay this season, he has one match and that was last week in Sophia Antipolis where he lost to Brown 4-6 3-6 as a 1.27 favorite. He was knocked out in Marrakech last year in the first round by Basic as a big favorite.
The head to head reads 2-1 for Haase but that first win was in 2015 and Jaziri had retired in the second set, the two other matches came last year and they won one each with both matches being very close. I think everything speaks for Jaziri having a much bigger chance of winning this than these odds suggest.
