Tennis | Jirí Vesely vs Fabio Fognini
Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Fabio Fognini is considered to be one of the best tennis players in Italy. The Italian is ranked number 19 in the world and is looking like a player in really good form. Italy is a country that loves sports and with the Italian national side not making the FIFA World Cup for football, tennis is the sport that everyone is watching. Fabio Fognini is carrying the flag for Italy in tennis and as a result there are huge expectations for him to do well in this tournament. The Italian has done well and made it to the third round of Wimbledon where he will take on Jiri Vesely from the Czech Republic.

Jirí Veselý has a long fight in his opening round game but managed to win in four sets. The Czech superstar followed that up with a straight sets win and it seems like the 24-year-old is getting better every game. This game will be a challenge for Jirí Veselý and he will once again have to improve if he wishes to make it to the next stage of the tournament. Jirí Veselý has shown great fighting spirit and it is clear that he has a very good technique so it is very possible for the Czech player to do well.

On the other side of the coin, Fabio Fognini will look to win this match with style. The Italian lost his first set of the tournament but has won every set after that. Things are looking very food for Fabio Fognini and he is looking like he is handling the big stage really well. While it is never easy to win at Wimbledon, this seems like a game that Fabio Fognini should win and I am predicting that he will win it well.

As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a great price to wager on Fabio Fognini to win so that is the bet which I am going to suggest that we make. In addition to that, I am also suggesting we bet on the under 3.5 sets bet since it is unlikely that Jirí Veselý will win a set.

Pick:
Fabio Fognini
