Two FerreroKillas.

Clay is certainly not Giraldo's favourite surface. Not sure it's De Bakker's either.

It's De Bakker's favorite surface for sure. He isn't that good on grass though.

Thiemo in 4 sets. Much better player, more talented, better on grass, so he should win.

Yeah, Santi is a hard court guy, he is also decent on clay, but hard is his best surface. De Bakker is good on hard also.

Giraldo will win this in 4 sets.

Giraldo had some good wins on grass in the past two weeks, so he can play on it and his form is good.

I think De Bakker even won junior Wimbledon a few years ago, so he can play on grass too, but his current form does not seem to be the best, he lost to Sijsling last week on grass in his home country.

I give the edge to Giraldo based on his recent form.

Both players can play on grass, but will probably be a lot better on it in a couple of years than they are now. I am going with Giraldo in four for this one, based solely on current form. Thiemo should ultimately be better on the surface though.
