For me this is better than ML because of the conditions, still expecting to see tomorrow 1.90ish a piece with the ML.
Yes this is interesting matchup on these fast conditions - I know Stricker very well AND how he like "over performs" already as a youngster at home like in Geneva, which was slight altitude and he had great wins there. Also early year I was backing him home at indoors CH where he took the title. Just a really talented youngster since Juniors - we will see him in year or little over from here in the top-100, surely. Arthur on the other hand has that serve, which has been even effective on slow conditions now, and strong groundies from the baseline.
Although my feeling tells me that Stricker will move on to next round, I want to play safe in case of really close 3 setter!
