THE PREDICTION

27-year-old Ilya Ivashka has carried his decent Miami Open form onto the clay at the Andalucia Open with back-to-back straight-set wins over Pedro Martinez and, emphatically, against the fifth seed Alejandro Davidovich Fokina on Thursday. The Belarusian will face his third Spaniard here in Marbella after Jaume Munar took out the second seed Fabio Fognini in just as emphatic circumstances, conceding just three games to the Italian. 23-year-old is capable of the occasional upset but it is difficult to decide which of the two is the underdog in this match after their efforts this week. Munar lost in the final the Challenger event here last week to Gianluca Mager and that extra clay practice could come in handy against Ivashka, though a result looks like guesswork in this first meeting between the pair. Neither player has dropped set this weekend, so take this match to require a decider and leave a winner up to chance.
