De Schepper K. - Stakhovsky S.
Two good servers will play in the first round of qualifications for the Australian Open.Sergiy Stakhovsky will play against Kenny De Schepper.
Both players have a good service, it can be said, precisely from this match, against the better quality opponents, the service would not be of great help for them.
This match, like the first set, should be equal, with many games, possibly with three sets.
This will be the eighth match between Stakhovsky and De Schepper. Stakhovsky won five times, De Schepper won twice, but in the first four sets played more than nine games. The last match they played, last season, also on the hard surface, in the first set played all thirteen games, they quickly came to the thirteenth game, without a break, something like that should be expected in the first set of this match, regardless of Stakhovsky is favorite before the start of this match.
