Giannessi vs Wild (By: Iniestaone)
First round match from Cordoba between Giannessi (#168) and Seyboth Wild (#451)
With Garin - Ramos getting pushed back to 01:00 CET tonight, I have a slot open for a pick today (and i'll post another one tomorrow if Ramos wins tonight) and I've chosen to make Seyboth Wild my pick for today.
In case you don't know who this guy is, he won the US Open Juniors last year and he produced some fine results on the challenger circuit as he defeated Jarry in two sets a year ago and stayed close to Berlocq and lost 1-2 in Sao Paulo as a 7.00 underdog. This is a very talented guy and an exciting prospect for Brazilian tennis and I think its very important for this bet that he already has defeated more experienced players than himself on the senior tour.
Giannessi is in Cordoba after qualifying but looking closer at the numbers we can see that in the first round he faced another guy who was a junior last year, Diaz Costa, as a 1.20 favorite and he won the first set 7-6 and Diaz Costa had to retire in the second. He then went on to win against Lorenzi in three sets who has been completely deflated in Cordoba, Lorenzi still got to play the first round in Cordoba because Sousa withdrew and he was torn apart by Pella 1-6 3-6. I won't put too much emphasis on Giannessi winning that match vs Lorenzi.
Seyboth Wild plays with a lot of confidence and South American clay is by far his best surface. This is the only type of court where I'd trust him to defeat Giannessi, who is also a clear cut claycourter but his best results have always been on European clay.
