Matchup: Felipe Meligeni Rodrigues Alves v Benjamin Lock

Pick: 8* Felipe Meligeni Rodrigues Alves -5.5 Games

Benjamin Lock has spent years on the fringes of the ATP Challenger Tour, mostly competing in the lower tier ITF Futures events with limited success.

His game is simply not good enough to play at the highest level and he needs to be playing his best tennis to win matches on the Challenger Tour.

Clay is by far his weakest surface, he struggles with his movement and his more compact ball striking doesn't penetrate through a clay court, he's simply entering these tournaments as they have more prize money than ITF Futures events.

Rodrigues Alves is a decent talent, he took a set from Dominic Thiem in Rio earlier this year and has reached a Challenger semi-final & two quarter-finals on clay already this season, he has beaten talented clay courters like Mager & Coria.

Lock lost 1-6/4-6 in the final round of qualies and enters the main draw as a lucky loser, expect him to struggle against a player of Alves quality. Rodrigues Alves -5.5 Games.
