Ilya Ivashka vs Jaume Munar : Prediction
Jaume Munar was the runner-up at the Marbella Challenger, which has prepared him well for the ongoing tournament. Ivashka on the other hand is coming directly from a hard surface which can be a little tricky against the in-form Spaniard who has had enough match practice on the clay for this season.
Since the start of last year, Munar has a record of 38-15 on Clay whereas Ivashka has 5-5 which could be another factor for the Spaniard being the favourite for this quarter-final. But Ivashka has cleared his intensions with his previous performances and will not go down without a strong fight.
Prediction: Jaume Munar to win in 3 sets
