Klaasen/Venus vs Hoang/Jacq (By: Scully99)
Klaasen and Venus, the top-ranked doubles pair here in Lyon are coming up against Hoang and Jacq.
Klaasen and Venus are experienced doubles players both ranked in the top 15 in the world and with 22 main level doubles titles between them but are a relatively new pairing together having only played together since last year.
They played extremely well last week in Rome getting to the final and beating experienced pairs such as Marach and Pavic as well as Gonzalez and Zeballos. Last week when coming up against more mediocre doubles opposition they won 2-0 twice and it was also the case last year on clay.
They have a 12/8 record so far this year on all surfaces and have got to two finals so their class is clear and I think they will be far too strong for their opponents today.
The opponents in question are the two Frenchmen, Hoang ranked 238 in the world for doubles and Jacq ranked 294. It is clear to see from the rankings alone the difference in class between the two pairs.
They haven't played with each other since 2017 when they won a futures level tournament way off the level they're coming up against today. With other pairs, Hoang is 3/8 on clay in the last couple of years with most of those losses coming at challenger level and Jacq is 8/14 at a similar level.
Overall the odds of 1.3 for the Klaasen and Venus win is easy money for a multi-bet but if it is a decent value single bet, I can't see past a relatively simple win for the pair.
