Paul vs Vesely: prediction for the Wimbledon match
Tommy Paulapproached Wimbledon in excellent shape. So far, he hasn't had any problems or difficulties at the London Major. In the first two rounds, the American tennis player defeated Fernando Verdasco and Andrian Mannarino in straight sets. In total, he played six matches on grass courts in 2022. Paul performed in the quarterfinals of the Cinch Championships and Eastbourne International and has reached the 32nd line of the ATP rankings.
Jiri Vesely has always done well at Wimbledon. The Czech athlete has reached the 4th round twice, and he has never lost in the opening round of the tournament. Vesely has a huge serve, which gives him an advantage on grass courts. In his first match, the Czech closed Federico Coria in straight sets. After that, he prevailed over Alejandro Davidovich Fokina in five sets.
Tie-breaks were played in Vesely's last 5 matches.
In 4 of Paul's last 5 matches, no more than 9 games were played in first sets.
The athletes met in Adelaide earlier this year. Back in January, Paul defeated Vesely in three sets (6-4, 4-6, 6-4). We predict another win for the American player - he is in great form and should have no problems against Vesely in the upcoming match.
Our prediction - handicap (-3) to Paul
In the last two head-to-head matches, Paul and Vesely played the maximum number of sets. Both players have big serves, so we expect a similarly long battle in this third-round match. Take the over.
Second bet - total over 36.5 games
