Barrere vs Bourgue (By: Iniestaone)
This is the first semifinal to be played in Quimper tomorrow (Saturday) and since i've decided i'm going to post one tennis pick per day from now on, i'm posting this already tonight as I believe the odds will go down on Barrere.
So, i've watched a lot of Quimper this year and I'm pretty surprised to see these two players in the semis. Barrere has made one good run here before, in 2015 when he reached the final, but other than that both him and Bourgue haven't had the best of fortunes in this tournament. This year I think Barrere has played better and I think he deserves to be backed here.
Bourgue made it to the semis after winning vs Ortega Olmedo, Gerasimov, Kotov and Bachinger. He dropped sets to everyone but Kotov. The win vs Bachinger was his biggest one by far and I think that'll end up being his crowning achievement in Quimper. He is not a regular indoor player, he only made 10 matches on this surface last year and defeating Bachinger was a much bigger surprise than the odds suggest as he was a 2.00-2.20 underdog. I didn't see the match unfortunately but I can see that Bachinger's serve fell apart in the third set and Bourgue managed to capitalized off that.
Barrere on the other hand really excels on these hardcourt indoor tournaments, he was 31/13 last year, many of them were Futures but he still produced great Challenger results on this surface as he won the Lille challenger and took a set from Opelka in the Bordeaux challenger final and also he had some semifinal runs outside of France. I think his record this year in Quimper is very impressive as he has defeated the likes of Hemery, Hurkacz and most recently Zopp. He is playing very well here and one thing that stands out to me is his serving as he was only broken two times in these three matches/8 sets and both those breaks came in the second set vs Hemery. He isn't usually a serve focused player, he is agile and moves very well around the court so his serve being on point at the moment is a huge plus for his game.
I think Barrere will take a convincing win here
