SK Slovakia

Tip comment

In my opinion, the odds should be reversed here and that is why I will play, although with a little bit reduced stakes. Both are poor players, but Klizan should not have been in the tournament by now - he was quite lucky in both of his matches, but somehow came through. Ledovskikh, on the other hand, had two solid wins - against Marchenko and Chiudinelli. He has already played the qualifiers here, so he is definitely on a run here and will want to take it one step further and this is the perfect opportunity. He has one great asset - his powerful serve. Other than that, I would rate them very close skill-wise. Klizan will maybe feel more motivated, since he is playing on home turf, but that should not matter here. Klizan still seems to prefer clay, while Ledovskikh definitely prefers hard courts - and this is the case here. As I said, this feels like 60-40 to Ledovskikh, but is priced the other way around and I cannot see why, so I will just play the odds here. Ledovskikh should just be a bad match-up for Klizan. Good luck.
