Ernests Gulbis - Fernando Verdasco
Pick: Fernando Verdasco
Odd: 1.29
Stake: 2'75/10 (11,813.66*0,1*0,275... 325 credits)

Gulbis is playing well in 2013 but I think that it is a little bit overrated on this match. Despite the fact that he is an offensive baseliner with very impressive shots (ball bashing very good if he is on his peak), grass doesn't fit with his game. It can be shocking because grass is a fast surface, but the problem is the bounce and the fast that you have to hit the ball. The Gulbis forehand shot requires time to be executed properly. It can be better on courts with high bounce, but we have seen lot of errors from him in all the grass court season. Picking on Verdasco can be very risky if we look at how he started the 2013 season, but lately he is playing widely better than before. He is peaking in this important part of the season and in Grand Slams he almost always gets a good result and plays very solid. Definitely Nando likes the best of 5 matches. He changed his racket and lately he is finding consistency in his game. He beat Malisse and Benneteau in Wimbledon, two matches where Fernando was the underdog. In addition he had a tight match with Feliciano in Eastbourne, which is a great thing despite the fact that he lost seeing how good Feliciano is playing on grass this year. Maybe if Gulbis is on the zone he can be definitely more powerful than Verdasco, but I think that in average the match is tight and it will be tough for both players. Fernando is a headcase but Gulbis when he is down in the scoreline sometimes gets crazy. The Latvian has a lot of quality but at this moment it is not reliable, and Fernando has more experience in this kind of Grand Slam matches. I am not saying that Verdasco is the favourite but his odd is got to try and bet on him.
