Cuevas - Garin
A rare South American battle in the first round of Masters 1000 will see Uruguayan Pablo Cuevas face Chilean Cristian Garin. This is tough one to call as both players have been in terrible form. Garin’s brilliant start to the year seems like a distant memory. Aside from the clay season in which he won two titles, his form has evaporated and we have only seen flashes of his brilliance on grass where he reached the last eight at the Libema Open. Although his start to the Asian swing was encouraging as he reached the quarterfinals in Chengdu, that only masks the lean spell of form in North America. Cuevas on the other hand hasn’t fared better either but he connected two wins in Beijing qualifications. Cuevas still leaves better impression on me when playing on fast hard courts so I will stick with him to win the match.Pick: 1
