The first round of the US open, and we have Pablo Cuevas against Ernesto Escobedo.
Well here i see a match which is really hard to predict, Cuevas of course better knows as a typical clay grinder, but he can play on hard aswell, not that good like on clay but he can be a guy which really has a smart game nice technique, good serving, creating nice angles on his shots. weaker side of course when he gets under pressure, is the backhand.
Escobedo on the other side has a huge forehand, but also his weakness is his backhand for sure is inconsistent already for years. He failed to improve his game, to become a top 100 player. Also he have hard service, well i really can see him here winning in three sets. i think there will be a one tiebreak for sure possible.
The courts are fast, and I see here over 38,5 games as really possible.
Pick: over 38,5 games
Odds: 1.94 @ Pinnacle
