Viktor Troicki vs Bradley Klahn Prediction
The Klahn is a big favorite, but don’t underestimate Troicki . This is the former 12th racket of the world. If he came to play in qualifications, then he did it for a reason. Yes, he has not performed in singles this year, but he has game practice. In this regard, we do not believe that this match will be easy for the Klahn.
