Jeremy Chardy has been on the brink of becoming an exceptional player for a long time and with the Frenchman getting older, now seems to be his time to exceed. He will be playing against Canadian teenager Denis Shapovalov in the first round of the 2018 tournament at Wimbledon.
Denis Shapovalov has impressed over the past year and is now ranked as the 26th seed at Wimbledon. At only 19 years of age, Denis Shapovalov is seen by many to be a future world number one. With so much talent, Denis Shapovalov has been not managed to perform well at the grand slams have only made it to the second round of the French Open. Denis Shapovalov is yet to win a game at Wimbledon and that is something that the Canadian will look to change in this match.
On the other side of the court, Jeremy Chardy will look to use all his experience against Denis Shapovalov. The Frenchman has made it to the fourth round of Wimbledon before and he will look to go better this year. Chardy is in exceptional form at the moment having had really strong ATP results leading up to this event. This tournament will be a big test for Chardy but with his strong results on grass this season, he will be very confident of performing well at Wimbledon.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to predict that Jeremy Chardy wins this match. The Frenchman is in the best form of his life and that should be enough for him to beat Denis Shapovalov. This is further supported by the fact that Denis Shapovalov has not made it past the second round since before the French Open.
As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a great price to wager on Jeremy Chardy to win this match. At these odds, I am going to suggest that we place a medium sized wager. In addition to that, I am also a fan of betting on the over 3.5 sets. While Chardy is more likely to win, Denis Shapovalov should be more than good enough to win a set. That makes this bet very good at the price we are getting for it.
