Both the players are in amazing form and will fancy their chances to move ahead in the tournament. Ruud will have a slight edge given his recent triumph at San Diego and superior ranking but he’ll be wary of Harris’ giant killing abilities. Expect the match to go down the distance with Ruud reaching the Round of 16.

Prediction: Ruud to win in three sets.
