The Line: -- Over/Under:
Jeremy Chardy and Nicolas Jarry meet in the quarterfinals of the 2019 tennis Swedish Open.
Jeremy Chardy is coming off a straight sets win over Christian Garin that took 20 games to decide. In the victory, Chardy won 79 percent of his first serve points and 42 percent of his second serve points. Chardy won 65 percent of his total service points and converted on three of his 10 break points. Chardy got 64 percent of his first serves in play, saved three of his four break points and hit 12 aces. Chardy had one of his cleaner performances in quite some time and doesn’t look like the same player who entered this tournament losing six of his last eight matches. Chardy looks to win three straight matches for the first time since Brisbane. Chardy has split his last six matches on clay court.
Nicolas Jarry is coming off a straight sets win over Mikael Ymer that took 21 games to decide. In the victory, Jarry won 74 percent of his first serve points and 52 percent of his second serve points. Jarry won 66 percent of his total service points and converted on four of his 14 break points. Jarry got 62 percent of his first serves in play and saved two of his four break points. Nine of Jarry’s last 10 victories on the main tour have been decided in straight sets. Jarry looks to win three straight matches for the first time since making the final in Geneva. Jarry has won six of his last eight matches on clay court.
These two played once, which was in this years Miami Open, a match Chardy won in three sets. The match took 34 games to be decided.
Jarry has been the more consistent player this season, but it’s Chardy who has been more impressive through two matches and his recent serving performance should provide confidence. If Chardy is going to get free double-digit points with his serve, he has a real edge in this match and can put together his first deep tournament run since January.
I give the slight edge to Chardy in this contest.
