This season, Tipsarevic has a good 27-11 win-loss record and currently he is enjoying his best ranking on the ATP World Tour as World No. 8.
Nicolas Almagro is like those typical Spaniards, who like to play on red-dirt and his performances over the years – has proved it many times.

On the other hand, Almagro has a very good 34-11 win-loss record for the season so far.
Considering the present form of both the contenders, we can expect a gruelling battle between them – as both know how to take the attack to the opposition.
