WWW St. Petersburg R2: P.H.Mathieu v. B.Becker

H2H is 1-0 to PHM, who won earlier this year in IW 6-4 6-1. But conditions and the surface there certainly favoured him.

I'm picking Becker to win this in another 3-setter (having defeated Stakhovsky in 3 sets in R1)

Mathieu when in form is a better all=around player than Becker. Both like to play agressively from the baseline, but PHM has the better ground game. Becke has good serve, but PHM also has a good serve, when in form, although it can go off kilter. PHM has a better return. If PHM plays like he can, he wins in straight sets.

PHM loses. That's pretty much a solid prediction against any top100 these days.

Probably Becker. PHM is the better overall player talent wise, but Becker has been the better player the entire season, and just had a good win over Stakhovsky. Should be confident and ready to win this. Hopefully PHM can win so he can get in the top 100.
