Tennis betting picks today for Jeremy Chardy vs Dusan Lajovic
In one of the most interesting matches of the second round of the Kitzbuhel tennis tournament, Jeremy Chardy faces Dusan Lajovic. The Serb is among those placed in the tournament and begins his participation on Wednesday, with Chardy already playing a match in Kitzbuhel.
Frenchman Jeremy Chardy did not lose a set to start his tournament after beating Marco Cecchinato 7-6, 7-5. Chardy performed very strongly in the closing moments of the two sets, leaving no chance for his opponent. Now, however, the Frenchman will have a much tougher match against Dusan Lajovic. Jeremy Chardy reached the 1/4 finals of the tournament in Hamburg last week, where he lost to future champion Nikoloz Basilashvili 2-6, 3-6. Earlier in the tournament he beat his compatriots Richard Gasquet and Benoit Paire. Such results should give self-confidence to Jeremy Chardy, who will be highly motivated to win the match with Dusan Lajovic.
Dusan Lajovic is ranked 26th in the ATP rankings. The Serb is having a strong season and the title of Umag won ten days ago. In the final he beat Attila Balazs 7-5, 7-5 in a very contested match. Lajovic performed strongly on glue and reached the final of the ATP 1000 tournament in Monte Carlo. In the trophy dispute, he lost to Italian Fabio Fognini 3-6, 4-6.
Dusan Lajovic will face Jeremy Chardy for the sixth time as they have not played this year. In 2018, the Frenchman recorded success with a 2-1 set in the Istanbul glue tournament. Previously, Chardy was again the final winner with 2-1 sets in the Paris Tournament at the end of the season. In my opinion, both tennis players will again make a contested match and our tennis betting prediction today will be over 2.5 sets in the match.
