I'm guessing Haase, he cares more, Dolgopolov might want to save himself for the US Open.

Not really sure if Dolgo is in his best form but if Haase serves below 50% again then Dolgo will surely win. Haase served over 60% on grass and still lost to Dolgo

It was not easy to play yesterday on court 2 at @winstonsalem. Centre court is much better. Happy to get another chance to play there.

So, he hopes to serve better :)
