ATP Challenger Trophy
Fransen v Balazs
Fransen +4.5 games (Asian Handicap)
Hard task for the WC local player Stephan Fransen facing Atilla Balazs in first round. He hasn’t a lot of experience in Challenger level and participate mainly in Scheveningen Challenger so far where he is 1-3, also comes in average form. Balazs has more experience even that arrives under uncertain conditions, he withdraw in Sibiu with right shoulder injury and played only one match since then, last week in Como. The Dutchman has a reliable serve and has solid ground strokes, on forehand sometimes press too much and also the drop shot should be a good weapon against him as he stays more on the baseline and isn’t the best mover up front. The match stays on Balazs racquet but he is under injury clouds and if Fransen will make to put some pressure he might surprise the odds and we back the Dutchman with handicap then the low odds on Balazs.
