Kohlschreiber vs Andujar (By: Iniestaone)
Second round match from ATP Marrakech between Kohlschreiber (#41) and Andujar-Alba (#70)
So now its time to go against Andujar-Alba and for him to lose in two sets. He got the job done against Delbonis but it was not a convincing win whatsoever, they were both unstable and Delbo could serve for the match in the first set at 5-4 but was broken and then couldn't use any of the breakpoints in the next game where Andujar held until the tiebreak which he won after a total of seven minibreaks. Delbo fell apart in the second set and threw the match there
Kohlschreiber had a more understandably difficult match against Davidovich Fokina which he won 7-6 7-5 but he needed time to adapt to the clay and Davidovich Fokina is playing the tennis of his life at the moment. I think Morrocco matters a lot more for Kohlschreiber than for Andujar, Kohl is enlisted for Monte Carlo while it seems Andujar might be playing the quals there after all and he can't possibly be motivated enough for a strong Marrakech run after winning Marbella and Alicante to follow it up by playing both Monte Carlo and Barcelona (which I am sure is a prioritized tournament for him). Meanwhile, Kohlschrieber needs to play more clay so Marrakech comes in very handy for him as he can win some matches here before his Monte Carlo opener on Monday/Tuesday
All this aside, Kohlschreiber is the better player in general and the thrives on these slow courts. I think he will have an easy time here and the odds for a straight set victory for him are incredibly high and I think a bit inflated due to Andujar's form
