First round at the 250 Tournament in Estoril (Portugal) with 30Argentine Leonardo Mayer (#45) facing 22time Chilean Nicolas Jarry (#65).
For Argentine we had spoken 2 months ago in Brazil's dirt tournament against Cuevas. From then on, in March, he made good appearances in the 2 Masters of America with 3 wins at Indian Wells and defeat the 3 set by Del Potro's compatriot. In Miami, 1's 2 round with 1-2 sets against Young is overturned and defeated by 1-1 set by the excellent Coric. After 2 month he returned to Barcelona's dirt surface by winning easy 0-2 set against Mischa Zverev and in the 2 round defeat easy 0-1 set by Khachanov with fairly moderate percentages for his data on winning points from the XNUMX serve .
Behind him will be the Chilean beast who is in top career this year and has made terrific performances in the Latin American tournaments in the early months with victories against Ramos 2 times, Cuevas, Zeballos, Pella, Garcia Lopez, Lajovic and we are talking about pretty good and experienced clay player. His defeats from Fognini and Baena with 2-1 set in tournaments won by his opponents and other 3 times was defeated by Argentine Schwartzman with 2-0 sets and only here he seemed unable to overcome them with his opponent's game . In all the other games he has fought greatly even in the 3 set, which means we have to do with a player who looks ready spiritually and has strong weapons beyond the good first serve. The last game was in Barcelona with a defeat difficult on 3 sets by Paire 7-6,6-7,6-4.
The only negative is this year's Australian Open match with Mayer's easy win with 3-0 sets but as we have seen, Mayer is better and more stable on hard surfaces than on the dirt that is Jarry's dynamics. The game I think in the worst will be judged in closed set details and Jarry is most likely to win a set and will bet on the + 3.5 bet given by the bettor at @1.55 with 4 / 10.
