The Stockport leftie will face Germany’s Jan-Lannard Struff, who is seeded No. 5 this week. Broady’s confidence has come from semi-finals and finals of Challengers already this season, but he went out in the first round of Miami, having made it through qualifying.
Struff, on the other hand, seems to be lacking confidence this year. The usually hard-hitting German has dropped off a cliff since the ATP Cup, which was the last time he watched back-to-back matches.
There is a real chance for Broady to take advantage of this drop in the German’s form and claim another scalp, but this time he ought to expect to work for it, although Struff had to come from a set down in his opener, so a quick start will be imperative for the Brit. He has been serving well, and he needs to take encouragement from how he pushed Miomir Kecmanovic in his Miami first round, before tailing off a little at the end.
The physicality of tour level matches might take a while to come for the Stockport lad, but if he keeps making his way to the main draws, it will come.
