Tennis Pick Preview
Tennis Pick for today is an very intersting match for online betting. Julien Benneteau vs Jeremy Chardy are playing at ATP – SINGLES: Indian Wells (USA), hard.
Their H2H is tied at 2-2, but Julien Benneteau won their only meeting on the outdoor hard courts which came at the US Open 2013. Though neither of them is playing their best tennis at the moment, Benneteau seems to be in a slightly better form and is more consistent as well (comparatively) which makes him the favorite in this first round clash.
Julien Benneteau News
Julien Benneteau is entering Indian Wells after a fairly successful week at Marseille, where he defeated Malek Jaziri and Roberto Bautista Agut before losing to the eventual Champion Karen Khachanov in the quarterfinal.
Except 2016, Benneteau has entered Indian Wells every year since 2005 and progressing to the quarterfinal once in 2014 is his best result in this event.
Entering as a qualifier in Indian Wells 2017, Julien Benneteau faced a disappointing first-round exit at the hands of Facundo Bagnis (7-5 4-6 2-6).
The 36-year-old Julien Benneteau has entered four tournaments so far in 2018 but faced first-round exits from two of them, against Zsombor Piros at Noumea Challenger and Ricardas Berankis at Montpellier.
Jeremy Chardy News
Three months into the new season and Jeremy Chardy is still struggling to win back to back matches. However, apart from losing to Tennys Sandgren (R1, Australian Open) and Juan Martin Del Potro (R1, Delray Beach), he has managed to win the first round matches in the three other events that he entered in 2018.
This will be Chardy’s tenth consecutive appearance at Indian Wells (2009-2017), and he has never progressed beyond the third round (2009 – R3).
