Will youth be served? Jiri is 10 years younger than GGL. GGL is a solid competitor who is not going to beat himself. Vesely is a 6’6″ lefty with more weapons. This is one of those do you pick a steady player who knows how big this opportunity is versus a guy with a lot of power. This is their first meeting. I think that favors the veteran. If Vesely handles the situation well, he might dictate play and win the match. My guess is that GGL will find a way to get traction and grind out a win though.
My Prediction Guillermo Garcia-Lopez d. Jiri Vesely 6-3, 7-5
