Balazs vs Herbert (By: Iniestaone)
Quarterfinal match from ATP Budapest between Balazs (#246) and Herbert (#49)
I can't explain Herbert success on clay so far this season. He has already performed better on clay this season than he has since, I don't know, maybe 2011 when you consider how early we are on the clay court season. He has taken two straight set wins as a big favorite I Budapest so far against Bachinger and Gerasimov.
Balasz is having a great season himself, 6/2 on clay so far which is almost literally his only surface. In Budapest, he has defeated Hurkacz and Millman and out of all the players that are left in the quarters, Herbert is the easiest obstacle to overcome for him.
The one time this season Herbert faced a clear clay courter on clay was against Mager in Sophia Antipolis against whom he lost in two long sets. I think that he has an easy time on clay against hard-courters because he can get something out of his serve-volley game, its a lot harder to do against players who know how to utilize the surface and Balazs knows that for sure.
I've seen Balazs play here and he as a domestic player has huge crowd support, he will have that against Herbert as well and defeating Hurkacz and Millman were bigger upsets than winning against Herbert would be.
