I must take Johnson in this match. I think it's time to show his quality.Although he is already 25 years,he started to provide some good work on a professional level in season 2011/12.
Johnson have currently 9/5 score, 7/4 of that of a hard drive. He is a classic hard player and it is the only surface where we can expect something from this player.
He is in great form, but he had no luck because had tough opponents in previous tournaments. 2 times he lose against Nishikori and Anderson, and once against Karlovic on last tournament in Delray Beach in semifinals.
Now he have some easier player, Ivan Dodig.
Dodig dont have good game like previous seasons. He play better in doubles, and singles are not in first plain..and he is close to falling out top100.
Dodig is a player with more experience, who can play well..but I think Johnson is in better form and that this should be decisive in this match. Both players have good services but I think Dodig will be more focused on tomorrow's match doubles with Melo against Huey / Lipsky.
Johnson does not play couples and this is his only goal, victory in this match.
