This will be the first meeting between Sam Querrey, a big-serving American, and the Australian Matthew Ebden.
Ebden is coming off a strong result at Indian Wells, falling to John Isner, who went on to lose in the final, in the fourth round. Making the small run more impressive is the fact that he defeated two seeded players to reach the fourth round, those players being Mardy Fish and Julien Benneteau.
Querrey, on the other hand, lost a tight match to the twelfth seed Nicolas Almagro in three sets.
Neither player is ranked where he would like to be, with Querrey being ranked 102 and Ebden coming in at 78.
Querrey has been inside the top 20 but he has struggled with injuries and inconsistency in the last year.
With his strong performance last week, Ebden moved into his career-high rank.
Querrey needs to start building both momentum and ranking points if he hopes to get main-draw invites to the majors this Summer.
The pick: Ebden will not be an easy match for Querrey, but I predict the American winning this match in straight sets.
