Dubai, United Arab Emirates
First round of the ATP 500 in Dubai. Rosol has qualified into the main draw with wins over Ivan Dodig and Vincent Millot, but faces a much bigger challenge in his compatriot Tomáš Berdych. Berdych is better than Rosol in every part of the game, and his heavy serve and powerful ground strokes is perfect in these conditions. He is a two-time finalist in Dubai, and there is no doubt that he excels in this tournament.
Berdych leads the H2H 2-0 and I have difficulties too see how Rosol will be able to make this match exciting. Unibet offers 1.45 for a 2-0 victory for the Berdman and that will be my pick for this match.
Tomáš Berdych -1.5 at 1.45 for 4.5 units.
