Karen Khachanov v Guido Pella Head to Head
The pair have played each other once before on the clay of Barcelona last year, Pella winning in straight sets.
Khachanov Going Well So Far in Australia
World number 17 Khachanov has enjoyed a successful first week in Australia, although he has benefitted from playing the lower ranked player in each of the countries Russia has faced. He began with a match against Stefano Travaglia of Italy, the world number 83 and a clay court specialist, whom he beat in straight sets on Friday.
Taylor Fritz of the United States was a much tougher opponent, and the pair traded sets, until Khachanov ran away with the match in the third. However, he easily saw off the challenge of Viktor Durasovic of Norway, dropping just three games to the world 317.
His only blip so far has come on the doubles court. After partnering Daniil Medvedev to victory over Simone Bolelli and Paolo Lorenzi, they were beaten by the American pair of Austin Krajicek and Rajeer Ram, although it did not matter in the overall context of the tie, which Russia still won.
Pella, a Clay Court Specialist Holding His Own
The number two Argentinian player, who won his first ATP title at the fourth time of asking in Brazil last year, is a clay court specialist, but he has proved to be a valuable foil for Diego Schwartzman this week, getting his country off to a winning start with a three set victory over Poland’s Kamil Majchrzak on Saturday. That proved invaluable as Argentina went on to win the tie 2-1, despite Schwartzman losing his own match to Hubert Hurkacz.
In his next match he took a one set lead against Dennis Novak but, could not hold on to the advantage, and lost the next two sets and the match.
However, he saved his best tennis for when his country needed it the most, digging deep to beat Marin Cilic in straight sets on Wednesday, a man who, just two years ago, was ranked three in the world.
Karen Khachanov v Guido Pella Predictions & Tips
Whilst Pella may have won their only previous meeting to date, but that was on clay, his favourite surface. Playing Khachanov on a hard court is a different proposition altogether – the Russian would appear to hold most of the cards.
