Carlos Berlocq, seen as a clay court specialist, looks tempting value against French player Benoit Paire. Berlocq had an excellent Golden Swing in South America on the clay and has moved inside the world’s top 40. While having a reputation as poor on other surfaces, there is no doubt his all round game is improving and there is also no doubt he is mentally stronger than Paire, who is always likely to have the kind of mad five minutes that can cost him key points. So Berlocq is our pick here.

One other player we like is Denis Istomin, who is getting back to his best form after dipping down to the Challenger circuit for the latter part of 2011. He reached the final of the San Jose event earlier this year, and his opponent, Yen-Hsun Lu, is a man who’d like a faster surface than is traditionally produced here. Lu is also re-adjusting after playing in Asian Challengers, so Istomin should have enough to win this contest.
