Rogerio former #88 back at his best this year and more in the past few months. 54/19 this year, winning a challenger 1 month ago on clay only losing a set.
Here he just lost a set, yesterday in semi finals, but didn't get broke in the match being so solid. I was impressed, really. I am really impressed with Rogerio game lately. A player to follow for next year 250's tourney in Brazil in early year.
Someone like Coric, is a perfect oponent for him. Coric is not physically strong as Rogerio is, Coric don't make some agressive returns of serve and most important, Coric is a player with 2nd serves really easy to take advantage of, what will Rogerio enjoy in tonight's final.
Rogerio got a powerful first serve, he play a inteligent tennis with some good tactics in game.
He is in amazing form, 19/3 actually. Two defeats came in ATP 250 events against Giraldo and Delbonis.
Despite amazing form, this matches, firstly was still close, but most important Giraldo is an amazing returner of serve with very agressive returns and Delbonis is a really powerful player who love to finish points quickly. Two things that can make Rogerio placement awkward.
First, Coric is not that sort of player.
Second, he don't play really well in this tournament and his placement is awkward and also he play really defensive, too much far from the baseline.
Against a such specialist on clay court as Rogerio is, he will get punished.
