Djere vs Cecchinato
ATP Umag, Croatia, clay, QF
Laslo Đere and Marco Cecchinato in their second ever mutual meeting. When these two met for the first time 2 years ago on Milan Challenger (clay), it was easy win for Italian player. But this time I expect quite different match. It might turn out not to be different in term who will win but IMO it's going to be different in term this will be now one more or less tied match, probably in all three sets and the most important with total games going over the offered line.
Only two days since I had over on Đere previous match, I don't have much new to say. So I'll use the same paragraph from two days ago.
"What I like about Laslo Đere (when betting is in question) is the fact he knew many times lately to surprise the favorites. If not to beat them, then at least to make those matches interesting. Plus, we especially had very tied matches (meaning over the totals) when he is in role of slight underdog or slight favorite, so basically when chances are more or less 50-50.
This match today seems to be one of those. Namely, Đere is set for slight underdog. I think we could see here 3-sets match."
And really, his match against Marterer was more or less tied. Tiebreak in the first but we didn't see the third set back then and at the end we came short for one game, unlucky short cause at 3:5 in second set, Marterer lost his serv again. So we had to settle with push bet on over 22 (6:7/3:6). But Đere again proved he can compete on clay against better players from himself.
Today the Serbian player will face even tougher challenge, Cecchinato who was French Open sensational semifinalist earlier in the season and for whom 2018 is best year ever.
But the Italian very often lately is involved in long matches too. You could see him numerous times winning 2-1 after losing opening set. He plays 3 sets in best of 3, he plays 4 or 5 on Grand Slams. In any case, he was mainly good choice lately for Over bettors.
