Tennis Prediction of the Day Michael Redlicki vs Jc Aragone
Redlicki beat Aragone in Orlando earlier this year, outdoors, and is a good mental scalp to bring with him to this meeting.
Aragone plays first match indoors this year and comes from a relatively slow outdoor surface, while Redlicki is played in after the first round victory.
He has shown a good top level this year and picked up some strong victories against eg. Laaksonen and Gunneswaran.
I think day shape will be decisive here, and level-wise, they are so close that it can become small things that decide it.
