League: Open de Nice Côte d’Azur
ROCHUS TO WIN!Final result: 2 - 1
Profit: 0.00 - 9 = -9
ATP Nice, clay courts
I knew that the wins of the Italian player, Filippo Volandri over David Nalbandian, Albert Montanes and Thomaz Belluci were just a proof of the decent moment combined with his opponents low interest for the event because after made those wins and made two decent results on Challenger Tour today favorite was down and lost more of the matches no matter the opponent and I don't see him to be the favorite today when will face Olivier Rochus.
The Belgian is no pushover, won their last meeting who by the way was played on clay and despite is yet to win on clay, wasn't bad in last matches played on this surface, has a better service and a decent game on court and should take advantage of his opponent poor moment.

I'm looking but I can't see through the b/s no offence. Rochus' serve will be useless on this what is now damp clay, making the ball slow even quicker and bounce even lower. Volandri can rally all day long on clay and Rochus on his least favoured service with his horrifc form with the absymal conditions, 2.20 is really bad odds IMO.
Because I trust Rochus to win. See the above reasons.
He's lost his last 7 1st round matches , 4 being on clay and Volandri has struggle with niggles, why take the CLEAR underdog when his form is so bad and its his worst surface by a mile (Rochus)
