Mardy Fish vs Tommy Robredo match analysis

Think the odds are too generous on Fish here. Robredo is not the player he used to be. Looking at his last nine months, he's played wretchedly and has been beaten by a number of average players. Bellucci showed him up in Auckland and he lost a set to Venus too. Win over Devvarman was expected because the Indian is as bad as Robredo is at present. Fish showed a lot of guts to take out Hanescu in the last round and will be buoyed after that. He is arguably at the peak of his career and seems motivated and fit, something that was lacking from his game a few years ago. He has the serve to get cheap points, something Robredo doesn't have, and is more consistent and aggresive than his opponent. They both know each other well - Robredo leads the H2H 4-3 - but most of their meetings were around 2008, when Robredo was a lot better than now. Fish has improved, has become more stable and solid, while Robredo is a flakier version of himself. Robredo might nick a set but Fish looks the call here. Good luck.
