The Line: -- Over/Under:
French tennis player, Jeremy Chardy has made it into the second round at the 2019 ATP German Open in Hamburg. In the second round, Jeremy Chardy will play against Richard Gasquet who is also from France.
Jeremy Chardy was very impressive in the previous round as he defeated the number 5 seed, Benoit Paire. It was a determined performance by Chardy as he lost the opening set but fought back extremely strongly to win the final 2 sets and the match. During the win, Jeremy Chardy served exceptionally well. Chardy won 66% of his service points which allowed him to win 94% of his service games. In addition to that, Chardy won 4 return games.
Jeremy Chardy has been in good form as he made the quarterfinals of the Swedish Open prior to arriving in Hamburg. Chardy also made the final of the doubles tournament at the French Open this season. Jeremy Chardy looks confident when playing on clay and he will be tough to defeat in this tournament.
On the other side of the coin, Richard Gasquet won his previous match in straight sets. It was a solid performance by Gasquet as he won 80% of his service games and 4 return games to secure the result.
Gasquet has also been playing very well as he also made the quarterfinals of the Swedish Open. Gasquet’s recent results also include a semifinal appearance at the Rosmalen Grass Court Championships. Richard Gasquet has a good record at the German Open as he made the final of this tournament in 2005.

The most recent match between these two players was earlier in the season at the Italian Open where Jeremy Chardy won in 3 sets. Chardy and Gasquet both have a head-to-head record of 1-1 when playing on clay.
Both Jeremy Chardy and Richard Gasquet are playing good tennis so both players will be confident about winning this match. That being said, I am picking Richard Gasquet to win. Gasquet has an outstanding head-to-head record against Chardy. Gasquet also has a stronger record at the German Open. With all that in mind, I see Richard Gasquet winning this fixture and securing a spot in the quarterfinals.
