Martin Klizan made big steps forward last year. The lefty from Slovakia showed very decent tennis on the European clay to show high class in Asia on hard courts. Klizan is an all-courts player whose main advantages are his reliable serve and footwork. His forehand and backhand shots also look perfect. The main troubles he has to overcome are mental and physical ones. At times his strange playing decisions cost him a victory. And, of course, constant injuries. But despite all this, Martin must be well-prepared now. He had worked out a lot and cured all healthy issues. So we hope to see good tennis by the Slovakian player!
Jurgen Melzer, the veteran from Austria is about to finish his tennis career. Last season he started only in April to miss the whole July then. The tournaments that took place in the second half of the season 2014 tended out to be not very successful for the Austrian. Jurgen is a kind of player who has to play a lot to start playing well. This is exactly what he didn’t do last year. Then he preferred to spend nice winter holiday with his wife than to work it out on courts getting ready for the next season. Another beneficial point to Klizan.
So we think that it must be a confident win by Martin Klizan. Melzer mainly relies on a booming forehand (keep it in mind that Jurgen is a left-handed player) which wouldn’t count now as Klizhan is a leftie himself. The only thing we worry about is Martin’s cheerful character. But he has to fulfill his talanet and potential this year. He is aged 25 which is the golden age for any player. So, strive to be the best, Martin! No time to warm it up!

Such evaluation of Gasquet from the bookmakers is understandable. The Frenchman lost his two previous encounters in a row to Monaco and Nadal, which is a sign of a bad form from Richard.

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.
