Is it time for The Artist, Dustin Brown, to show what he’s made of, or will he be undone by the brilliance of Elliot Benchetrit?

“The Artist” has not crafted a masterpiece thus far at UTS, so it’s now or never for Dustin Brown on Sunday as he prepares to face “The Underdog”, Elliot Benchetrit in the final match of Week 4 of UTS.

Brown, the lowest-ranked player at the UTS, has demonstrated flashes of brilliance but he just hasn’t been able to connect the dots and sustain the euphoric tennis that he strives to play. Perhaps he’ll play more loosely and serve bigger after recovering from the right ankle injury that forced him out of action last Sunday. If so, it would be a welcome development.

Benchetrit may be The Underdog by name but in reality he has been the better player at UTS thus far. He defeated Lucas Pouille in week two and last week raised eyebrows with a steady stream of elevated shot-making against The Wall, David Goffin.

Benchetrit may indeed be a part of the future of French tennis. He’s got great hands and a hard-to-read game that features a lot of imagination. Can Brown prove that he’s the real artist in this match-up and take a much-needed win on Day 8, or will it be The Underdog who squeaks out another impressive victory?
