Tennis | Matthew Ebden vs Gilles Simon
Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Frenchman, Gilles Simon, will be in action at Wimbledon. The French tennis superstar has been on the ATP Circuit for a long time and is a very well respected player. Having made the quarterfinals of Wimbledon before, Gilles Simon has had good memories in London and will look to have another deep run in this competition. He will be playing in the third round of Wimbledon where he will take on Australian tennis player, Matthew Ebden. Both players will be desperate to win this match so I am expecting both players to display all their skills on the court.

Matthew Ebden entered Wimbledon on the back of some solid results in ATP tournament. That form continued in the opening two matches where the Australian won with some dominance. Ebden has only dropped one set in his two matched which is a good result for the 30-year-old. This is the furthest that Matthew Ebden has ever made it at Wimbledon so I am expecting the Australian to be very determined to ensure his run doesn’t end in the third round.

On the other side of the court, Gilles Simon will look to turn back the years and have another deep run at Wimbledon. The Frenchman is very talented and now has the experience to go with that. Gilles Simon looked very dominant in his opening matches and is yet to lose a set in this tournament. This shows that the Frenchman is in great form and he should be fresh for this clash. Simon has been on this stage many times before and that experience will be a huge advantage in this match.

All in all, I am going to predict that Gilles Simon wins this match and makes it to the fourth round of the tournament. While Matthew Ebden is playing well, he lacks big match experience and that might cost him dearly. As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a great price to wager on Gilles Simon winning this match so that is the best bet in my opinion.
