Jarry vs Kudla predictions


Nicolas Jarry and Denis Kudla do battle for the first time as the pair eye off a place in the Geneva Open quarter-finals on Wednesday.

Both players have negative win-loss records for the season and they also each defeated Australian players that struggle on clay to make the second round in Geneva, with Jarry beating Matthew Ebden in straight sets and Kudla overcoming Jordan Thompson in three.

Three of Jarry’s eight tour-level wins this season came at the Barcelona Open main draw, when after qualifying, he beat Marcel Granollers, Alexander Zverev and Grigor Dimitrov before going down to Daniil Medvedev.

Jarry is equipped with a big game and has the ability to be top 30, but he’s still very erratic from week to week. However, there’s no doubt he does his best work on clay, and if he can find his range this week, he’s going to be a dangerous presence in Geneva. Jarry is 4/9 @ William Hill.

Kudla’s least favourite surface is clay and it shows in his results - he’s only won five matches in his career on the dirt and has lost four of his five matches on clay so far this season, including in the opening round of qualifying in Rome and Madrid.

You’ve got to give Kudla props for having a go on European clay as so many of his countryman tend to skip most of the swing before coming into Roland Garros cold, but the reality is his flat game isn’t suited to the surface and he will almost always come up short against someone who knows how to play on it. He’s 39/20 @ Betfair.

Jarry vs Kudla betting tips


Anything other than a straight sets win for Jarry would be a surprise to me. As mentioned, Kudla struggles significantly on clay, and when you lose to Bernard Tomic on the surface (like he did in Houston), then I don’t have high hopes for you. Jarry is a very dangerous clay-courter when he’s in the zone with his heavy groundstrokes and big forehand, and if he doesn’t dish out an error-ridden performance, he should be moving comfortably into the quarter-finals.
