Pablo Cuevas vs Viktor Troicki
It was a great week in Beijing for Pablo Cuevas, winning back to back matches on a Hard Court tournament for the first time since 2011. Cuevas is always a very competitive player with a good kick serve and consistent groundstrokes, however his game isn’t so effective on Hard Court when compared to clay.

After the two great wins over Tomas Berdych and Ivo Karlovic, Pablo struggled against Fabio Fognini in quarterfinals ending that match with 9 winners and 41 unforced errors.

Last month’s haven’t been easy for Viktor Troicki with several early losses but the Serbian is a tremendous fighter and last week pulled out a big win over Milos Raonic.

Troicki has a very good first serve and the backhand is clearly his best shot. Viktor is also a great defender however, he plays too passive sometimes, which gives many chances to his opponents.

They played only once in 2010 on Indoor Hard Court where Troicki emerged victorious in straight sets.

This is quite an interesting match-up for the Serbian, particularly on a match played on Hard Court. One of Cuevas biggest weapon is the kick serve to his opponent’s backhand however Troicki has an extremely solid backhand and that service won’t create much problems to Viktor. Pablo also showed some problems in longer rallies last week against Fognini and Troicki should be a tough opponent with his defensive skills.

If this was played on clay, the Uruguayan would have some decent chances to take the victory but on Hard Court his chances are quite low. The tennis odds on Troicki are very interesting and we’ll add him to our tennis picks as ATP Shanghai Top Play - Day 3.

Tennis Pick: Viktor Troicki ML (-133) at Pinnacle.
