Nikoloz Basilashvili v Jiri Vesely at the Grand Prix Hassan II
Nikoloz Basilashvili, coming off the Davis Cup and outdoor hard courts of Indian Wells and Miami, will find it a bit tough to start his clay-court campaign. The surface and climate conditions are not that easy to adapt to at once. The Georgian’s play includes active rallies and the defending style of the Czech will be challenging for him.
When on clay, Jiri Vesely may finally forget about his offensive troubles and focus on the quality of the play. The only questionable moment is the beginning of the match. The Georgian is capable of winning the first set. While this scenario is very unlikely, it poses risks.
Betting pick: If Basilashvili takes the opening set, back Jiri Vesely in-play. To those who are not big fans of betting live, we advise on backing Jiri Vesely -1.5 at 2.6.
Malek Jaziri v Jeremy Chardy at the Grand Prix Hassan II
Both of the opponents are in very decent form. If the match took place on hard, we’d lean on Jaziri’s side. But on slow clay we back Jeremy Chardy. TheFrenchmale got lots of practice on clay during the Davis Cup battles, while for the Tunisian it will be the first clay-court match this season.
Betting pick: Back Jeremy Chardy -1.5 at 2.4.
Paolo Lorenzi v Guillermo Garcia Lopez at the Grand Prix Hassan II
Paolo Lorenzi was worn out after the Davis Cup matches in Belgium. The clashes were held outdoors and there was no time left to practice on clay. His future opponent, Garcia Lopez, will benefit from the clay-court tournament he has already taken part in. The Spaniard suffers from the tennis style he applies. He isn’t offensive enough and his drop shots won’t be effective now. As for consistency, Lorenzi is able to run along the baseline and will tune into his rhythm with a couple of warm-up rallies.
Betting pick: Back Paolo Lorenzi in the outright betting.
Carlos Berloq v Benoit Paire at the Grand Prix Hassan II
The outcome of the match will largely depend on the Argentine’s fitness. Benoit Paire is on fire now. He has come off the final performance at a clay-court Challenger event in France where he finished a runner-up to Aljaz Bedene. Berloq hasn’t played since mid-March so we lean on the Frenchmale’s side due to his experience and current form.
Betting pick: Back Benoit Paire on the negative handicap market.

IMHO Federer will win like 6:2 6:4 or so.

Probably. But Johnson's service is good, so Roger will rarely make more than one break in a set.
