WWW Bucharest QF: [Q] Brands vs Bachinger

Bachinger has defeated Volandri and Troicki in three sets to get to this stage of the tournament. He's starting to find some form again on clay after falling from the top 100.

Brands has won five matches this week---three in qualifying, two in the MD, all without losing a set. If he wins tomorrow he'll return to the top 100 for the first time since March 2011.

Brands has won the pair's last three matches and, IMO, should win again if he plays the way he has so far this week. Vote up and give your thoughts on the match below!

Bachinger is the favorite here. Scrapers and grinders are always the favorites in a match-up like this.

That's not surprising since you don't know your tennis very well.

Re: WWW Bucharest QF: [Q] Brands vs Bachinger

i also think he's rather aggressive, esp. can be seen on quick surfaces

brands basically can serve and that's all though. oh, also first few forehands in a rally can be decent

h2h says brands but it's true bachinger beat better players here so far

Re: WWW Bucharest QF: [Q] Brands vs Bachinger

If Bachinger wins, should get into Wimbledon
Brands winning would pretty much seal him being in
