Popko D. - Luz O.
Here we have a second round match on ATP Challenger tournament in Cordenons in Italy on clay between Dmitry Popko from Kazakhstan and Orlando Luz from Brazil.
These two players have never met to date against each other. While Dmitry Popko has been free in round one, Orlando Luz has played his match against Giovanni Fonio and won it in two sets. Playing match in opening round could actually be big advantage for Orlando Luz here as he has been familiar with conditions and surface and he will need less time to adjust and to start playing his best game. Dmitry Popko is not having good season at all and he has not improved his game much from three years ago when he was on his best ranking. Orlando Luz has played mostly on ITF tournaments this season, but he has played them mostly in Italy and he is basically on home court here and he should be able to use all that in his favor and to win this match.
