Denis Shapovalov to beat Jeremy Chardy – 5/4
This is a fascinating matchup as the future star of the game comes up against one of the form players over the last few weeks. Chardy has won a challenger event as well as making a semi-final and final in his last three tournaments, all on grass. Shap, on the other hand, has had a poor grass spell with only one win over Jared Donaldson in his three grass tournaments this year. Despite this we see value in Shap as underdog – he has shown a liking to the big stage in his short career to date, and we are backing him to bet the better of the in-form Frenchman.
Mischa Zverev vs Pierre Hugues Herbert to be 3-3 after 6 games of Set 1 – 8/11
These two players come in on decent form last week with the older Zverev brother taking the title in Eastbourne while Herbert battled his way to the quarter final before falling to eventual champion Dzumhur. With both players possessing strong serves we fancy this one to be tight in the early exchanges and are backing it to be serve-oriented with the score to be 3-all after 6 games priced at 8/11.
Jack Sock to beat Matteo Berrettini – 8/11
Sock, last year’s Paris Masters champion (that tournament victory saw him into the World Tour Finals, where he battled his way to the semis) has had a torrid year to date and has yet to win two games in a row. His strong-serving 22-year-old Italian (playing the first grass tournaments of his career) opponent has been beaten by veterans Andreas Seppi and David Ferrer in consecutive first round matches after making it through qualifying at Halle and Eastbourne respectively. We are hoping that the colourful American starts his return to form tomorrow and are taking the 8/11 on him getting it done here.
Claire Liu to beat Ana Konjuh – 11/10
An interesting matchup in which we have last year’s junior champion coming up against the rusty Ana Konjuh, who has played very little tennis over the past year, after a very promising effort here last season, where she made it to the fourth round. Liu battled her way through qualifying and we’re taking her as a slight outsider to make it to round four.
