Odds are really huge out there, I need to make something about this one's !
Romboli was a sensation in the challenger tour earlier this year, winning the Cali Challenger in May by taking everyone by surprise, winning 7 matches in a row for the title. He struggled a bit after that, he did go back to ITF and few 1R challengers lost but last week he was in an Italian challenger and did beat Igor Sijsling in R1,after falling to Carlos Berlocq. This stuff can make him more confident here.
Teixeira lost in qualifs last week but was a lucky loser, still losing 1R match against Brands. I count the last week tournament as a lost in qualifs, so that was his 8th straight defeat in challenger qualifications on clay courts. Yes, he didn't manage to qualifs in any of his 8 previous challengers tries.
He is 24/16 this year on clay but 75% of his victories have come from ITF and from a good challenger at the start of the year. Last year he was 9/16 on clay so that say's it all. He only did one really good year on clay with 66/21 in 2010, 5 years ago.
Romboli is a very good player in defensive play, proper clay court specialist, hard to beat in points as he won't leave any points. Typical tennis from a Brasilian clay court specialist. He has a poor service, that is the weakest thing of his tennis. He will put in big troubles Teixeira 2nd serve's out there !
Romboli is 293/162 on clay in his career and as I said he's already won a Challenger this year and did hit an important 1st round victory last week to give his confidence back after poor results. I just don't understand 10bet odds of 3.05 and I'll have a go at this one !
