Rinderknech A. - Stricker D.
In this match of solid ATP tournament in Gstaad Arthur Rinderknech from France will play against Dominick Stricker from Switzerland. I expect tight match between these two players.
Rinderknech comes into this match as a slight favorite. He just broke into top 100 players. He has been fantastic on Challenger tour and he won even one title this year which was at Istanbul Challenger played on indoors. Big server with some powerful groundstrokes. Still solid on clay though this is not his favorite surface.
Dominick Stricker is one to watch in the coming years. Wonderful talent and the one who will continue the legacy of Swiss tennis. He will need to follow the footsteps of Wawrinka and Federer. It will not be an easy job but he has the game for it. Though 18 years old he already has some big wins. Playing in front of his own crowd will do him good only. Last time he played in Switzerland was as ATP tournament in Geneva where he won against players like Cilic and Fuscovics.
Stricker can handle pressure. He is young but he has a heart of a champion. Strong all round player who plays equally on every surface.
