Blaz Kavcic v Antonio Veic
Antonio Veic -1.5 sets (Asian Handicap)
In the first round at ATP Umag (Croatia, clay) we will have a battle between two right-handed players Blaz Kavcic from Slovenia and Antonio Veic from Croatia who met four times before and the croatian leads by 4-2 overall. Veic just world number 131st pretty decent claycourt player has won a challenger title this season and played another final. Here at Umag he has never gone over the first round and I belive he`s got a perfect chance here against Kavcic who he beat 4 times out of the last 5 meetings. Kavcic, world number 71st in the world, he turned pro in 2005 but so far this is the best he has done in the ATP Rankings. Just by looking at his history we see that he likes claycourt more then anything, this season with 2 challenger titles won on the red surface and another final played. He as well never gone over the first round at Umag and like I said this should go to Veic. So counting the croud support and the clear motivation he has by looking at his recent historic against Kavcic (won 4 of the last 5 meetings against him, all on clay), I`ll take Antonio Veic in this one for a straight set win.
