The Line: -- Over/Under:
French tennis player, Benoit Paire has made it into the fourth round at Wimbledon. At this stage of the tournament, Benoit Paire will play against Roberto Bautista Agut from Spain.
Roberto Bautista Agut was exceptional in his previous match as he defeated Karen Khachanov in straight sets. During the victory, Agut served exceptionally well as the Spaniard won 80% of his service points which allowed him to win all of his service games. Agut was dominant while serving as he didn’t allow Karen Khachanov any break point opportunities.
It has been a very strong tournament for Roberto Bautista Agut as he is yet to lose a set. Prior to arriving at Wimbledon, Agut played at the Halle Open where he made the quarterfinals.
On the other side of the coin, Benoit Paire defeated Jiri Vesely in 4 sets in the previous round. It was a tough match for Paire as he struggled with his receiving but the Frenchman won vital points to get the overall victory. The main asset for Benoit Paire was his serve. Benoit Paire hit 19 aces which aided him in winning 74% of his service points. Paire won 96% of his service games during the victory. The receiving is a concern for Benoit Paire as he only won 1 return game in the entire match.
Benoit Paire was in poor form prior to arriving at Wimbledon. Paire was eliminated in the opening round of both the Antalya Open and Halle Open.
Roberto Bautista Agut and Benoit Paire have played each other 8 times in the past. Roberto Bautista Agut has won on all 8 occasions. The most recent match between these two players was in 2017 at ATP Chennai where Roberto Bautista Agut won in straight sets.
Benoit Paire has had a decent Wimbledon campaign but I see him losing this match. Roberto Bautista Agut has been playing better tennis and the Spaniard has an incredible record against Paire. Roberto Bautista Agut has an 8-0 record against Paire which is very one-sided. Agut seems to always have the edge over Paire and I see the Spaniard beating the Frenchman for the 9th time.
