Tennis Picks 2014 (June 18th)

Jeremy Chardy - 3.5 games v Carlos Berlocq: It was a somewhat surprising win for Jeremy Chardy in the First Round as he played very well against Ivo Karlovic to beat the big server in straight sets. He is a fairly heavy favourite to beat Carlos Berlocq and I still think Chardy should perhaps have been even shorter in the market to win.

Out of the two players, you would think Chardy would be the happier on the grass courts as Berlocq is much more used to the clay courts and the extended rallies that surface brings.

On the grass courts, the ball skids through that much lower, while Berlocq's serve is definitely the more vulnerable of the two players. Chardy should have enough to win this one with a break advantage in each set and I like him to win this 64, 63.

Angelique Kerber - 3.5 games v Alize Cornet: Another match taking place on Wednesday where I believe there is a mismatch as to how the players take to the grass courts is the one between Alize Cornet and Angelique Kerber.

The German played really well in the First Round against a dangerous opponent in Alison Riske, but she came through in straight sets and should have covered this number but for a lapse in concentration when serving for the match.

Cornet has won matches on the grass courts before, but she hasn't had sustained success on the surface and I think Kerber's serve will give her a few cheap points. Kerber also moves well on the grass and I think she can frustrate Cornet to the point of recording a 75, 64 win.
