Marach O./Pavic M. - McLachlan B./Struff J-L.
Oliver Marach and Mate Pavic are one of the best doubles in the world, they can play very well on all surfaces.
In the first round of Rome will play against Ben McLachlan and Jan-Lennard Struff.
McLachlan and Struff are also high quality doubles, but we can not say to be superior on the clay from Marach and Pavic.
Struff in the last time is better in singles, he and McLachlan do not come in good shape in this tournament, they played two tournaments this season on the clay, and they lost on both tournaments in the first round, so there will be no surprise if they lose in the first round of this tournament.
This will be the fifth match between these two doubles.
Both doubles have two wins. McLachlan and Struff won both times on the hard surface, again they would have more chances that this match is play on the hard surface.
Marach and Pavic won McLachlan and Struff on the clay, a month ago, after the turn, so in this match, they will be closer to victory, after two sets, or after three sets.
