For many peoples favourite is Dodig, but why? Riba have more experience on clay, is better from the baseline..

Dodig is a better player in general than Riba is. I don't think Pere is better from the baseline overall. Dodig is also pretty good on clay.

With that said, I think Pere will win this match in 4 or 5 sets. He's been motivated and playing good tennis these past few weeks. He's another guy who will be helped by the quicker clay, especially with his serve. I think Pere will be able to control play from the baseline with his forehand. Ivan will need to be aggressive and not get into a grinding match with a grinder.

Dodig for sure.

tough to call...any other surface i'd say dodig for sure. the fast clay should help ivan's serve and allow him to come to net more than usual

By far the best caption :). Dodig should take it.

On hard or grass, Dodig would flog Riba. Here, Riba in 5.
