Chung vs Cecchinato
This is a match from the 2nd round of Shanghai Masters between Chung and Cecchinato.
I will post a few picks I chose from the schedule in all tours during the week, so the previews will be shorter. This is a match between two players who are not is best form for sure. Cecchinato was brilliant during the clay season, where he made a lot of great results. Hard courts are not his main strenght, but he is trying to get better and better on that surface. In the 1st round he beat very experienced opponent like Gulles Simon in three sets, so Chung is not looking like mission impossible in the 2nd round.
Chung beat Robert Hurkacz in the 1st round in three sets and the odds for his win in the 2nd round really look confusing. His form before Shanghai Masters is on the same level as Cecchinato's one, so to put odds 1.25 against 4.00 not only sounds strange, but ridiculous.
OK, I will not shoot in the dark here with Cecchinato to win the match. I will just play it over 20.5 games, because I have a feeling it will go in three sets when two players not in from have a meeting on the court. This over can land even with a set in tiebreak and a straight set win for anybody, so double chances for success. You can also try over 21.5 games, because the odds there are 1.97 in Pinnacle and 1.90 in bet365.
