Julien Benneteau - Fernando Verdasco
Pick: Fernando Verdasco
Stake: 2,5/10 (10,807.72*0,1*0,25... 270 credits)
This match will be close. In my opinion, after a disastrous start of the season, Fernando Verdasco is peaking and finding a good rythm. He had a close match against Feliciano Lopez who is doing a great grass season. In addition, Verdasco won Malisse, who was on fire and defended the fourth round that he achieved last year (beating Verdasco on his way). Verdasco can make bad performances in 250 and 500 tournaments but in Slams he shows almost always a serious version of his tennis. He knows how to play 5-setter matches. Benneteau was close to defeat Federer last year but this year, after the indoor season of February, he is a shadow of the player that was. He isn't finding rythm and consistency, and despite the fact that he plays well on grass I don't see why Verdasco can win here. I do not see Verdasco favourite but Benneteau neither. I think that we can take profit of his odd, an odd that I think it is good.
