Edmund vs De Schepper by 20legend
Kyle Edmund - Kenny De Schepper
ATP: Aegon International, Eastburn (grass).
Kyle Edmund is 18 years old and is qualified to this tournament on Wild Card. He is currently ranked as 444 on the ATP ranking, which indicates that he should get his skills highly tested in against today’s opponent. The youngster usually plays IFT and some Challenger tournaments, but he has no experience facing opponents of this caliber. He got knocked out in his first game at the grass in London a week ago against Zemlja by 2-0. However, the youngster really showed some great play in the second set, and forced the Slovakian into tie-break, where he got too strong, and Edmund lost 6-4, 7-6.
Kenny de Schepper swept easily through the qualification into this tournament by beating Sterland-Markkovic 2-0 (6-1, 6-4), Nielsen 2-0 (6-4, 6-4) and Martin Alund 2-0 (6-1, 6-1). He is currently ranked 82 at the ATP ranking. He got to the 1/8 Finals in London where he lost to Denis Kudla, after beating Bopanna (2-0) and Rajeev Ram (2-1) in his first matches.
These two players have never met before. However, Kenny de Schepper should win this match quite easily, as Edmund’s lack of experience at this level should be in the Frenchman’s favor. Edmund’s favorite surface is clay, while de Schepper enjoys grass a lot better than the youngster. De Schepper looked quite good in the qualification, and he should be able to break Edmund several times during this match. I expect a match were de Schepper winning 2-0 and my pick will be under 22, 5 games which should be very likely to happen here.
