Two great players face off in R.1 in Kula Lumpur.
Chardy did a strong US Open making it to the 4th round where he lost against Cilic in 4 sets. I think he played really well in that tournament. He has a strong serve and heavy strokes. If I would complain about something about Chardy it would be his mentality. He can be a bit too much up and down and have some slumps in matches.
A.Zverev is a real up-and-comer. He just keeps on improving and climbing the ranks. He has a strong year behind him. Lost in R.1 in Open against Kohlscriber after 5 sets. Played last week in France and lost against Verdasco in 3 sets. Has a strong serve but is still lacking a bit from the baseline to be considered a top tier player.
Like both of these players, but think Chardy will be the stronger in this fight. Chardy has beaten heavy servers like Isner and Karlovic so I think he has the qualities necessary to handle Zverev´s serve. I wouldn´t be surprised to see 3 sets, but I think Chardy will be the stronger when the ball is in play in most rallies so I will go with -2 games hcp for Chardy.
