THE PREDICTION

This looks a difficult match to predict between world number 98 Roberto Carballes Baena and number 94 Attila Balazs in what will be their first career meeting. Furthermore, this could be worth holding off from until nearer the time after Hungary’s Balazs was forced to pull pout of his only match this season against Carlos Alcaraz last week after just four games. 27-year-old Carballes Baena could end up playing a lucky loser of Balazs cannot play the match but with fitness potentially an issue it looks likely that the Spaniard can navigate a path through to the second round here. Carballes Baena came close to beating the eventual Great Ocean Road Open runner-up Stefano Travaglia last week and is probably the better of the two players on the face of it so pick the Spaniard to win by any means.
