ATP Australian Open [Qualifying]
I see this match as a coin flip in normal conditions, but here I can give to Marcora a slight advantage and I even have a small plus handicap to increase the margin of this pick. Marcora is a good player in my eyes, always combative and reached the QFs in Noumea last week, where he played the first tournament of the season and had some battles that may be useful to regain the match pace. Lacko didn't take part in any tournament and could have a slow start if you ask me. Also Lukas is not that good when not playing on indoor hard, although conditions aren't slow in Melbourne. Both players will play when there are about 30 degrees in broad daylight, with Lacko suffering more the heat.
