The French Open is the living room of Rafael Nadal, who in his impressive career has an impressive 86: 2 record in Roland Garros. In the next two weeks, the Mallorcan will be the big hunted. In fact, chances are that Nadal will face his third defeat in Paris this year. The world class has moved much closer together and meanwhile many young savages are pushing ahead. This applies, for example, to the 23-year-old Russian Karen Khachanov, who can always create danger with his powerful tennis. In the first round Karen Khachanov meets Cedrik-Marcel Stebe from Germany!
Tennis Betting Tips Karen Khachanov vs Cedrik-Marcel Stebe
The question of the favorite is unnecessary in this duel, because anything but a success of the current number twelve in the world would be a huge surprise. Stebe has been plagued by injuries in recent years and has been waiting for victory on the ATP Tour for over a year and a half. Thanks to the “protected rankings” he still stands in the main competition. But there are no realistic chances of winning.
Karen Khachanov – Statistics & Current Form
Current ranking in the world rankings: 11.
Position in the seedling list: 10
In the past year, the Russian Alexander Zverev delivered a great fight in the second round and had to defeat the German in a gripping and tight five-set fight. Khachanov, who celebrated his 23rd birthday last week, has never survived the round of 16 in a Grand Slam tournament. Nevertheless, the youngster is already one of the best players on the tour and is knocking on the first top ten place. He is already ranked eleventh in the current world rankings. The calendar year 2019 is currently only conditionally as desired. At the end of May, the Russian even showed a negative 10/12 balance sheet, after 49 wins in the previous year were only 25 losses.
The tall Khachanov (1.98 meters) is certainly not in top form, so he will be happy that he does not have a clay court specialist in the first round, but even an opponent who has hardly been positive in recent weeks, months or even years Could gain experiences, got put in front of the chest. The shape curve of the Russians last went up a bit. After three defeats in Monte Carlo, Barcelona and Munich, he was finally able to celebrate victories again at the Masters tournaments in Madrid and Roma. In both tournaments he finally drew in three tight sets against Fernando Verdasco the short straw. However, Verdasco in Roma, for example, could force Dominic Thiem to his knees.
Khachanov, with his strong serve and his flat forehand on clay court, leaves the return player with very few opportunities. Stebe, who has not played against a player with this quality for ages, will probably be under constant pressure. Accordingly, one-sided this game is lost and between Stebe and Khachanov, the prediction on a clear 3-0 set victory of the Russians is obvious.

Cedrik-Marcel Stebe – Statistics & Current Form
Current ranking in the world rankings: 506.
Position in the seedling list: unset
Cedrik-Marcel Who? The name suggests, but probably only the fewest tennis fans can do something with the name of the now 28-year-old. Stebe was already number 71 in the ATP world ranking in 2012. At his best times, Stebe even played for the German Davis Cup team. The reason why he is not known to many tennis fans is due to his countless injuries. He finished the 2013 season in September and did not return to the ATP Tour until the beginning of 2015. However, the comeback was short-lived, after which he had to pause for countless months. In 2017, he finally seemed to be back on the road before being forced to take another break for a break. The medical record is thick – back problems, pubic bone, lumbar problems, groin surgery and wrist problems prevented a better career.
His last victory on the ATP Tour dates from 24 September 2017. At that time he was able to win a Challenger tournament in Sibiu, Romania, in an impressive manner. In 2018, he could only play two games before he had to undergo a wrist operation again. This year, Stebe could only be seen in Marrakech, qualifying for Munich and the Challenger in Heilbronn on the pitch – in all three games Stebe had beaten in two sets.
Meanwhile, Stebe is not even to be found in the top 500 of the ATP World Ranking list, but thanks to its “protected rankings” is firmly in the main draw. Due to the almost endless injury break, he could not earn any money, but with the participation in Roland Garros Stebe at least builds up a financial cushion. Sporting the Grand Slam tournament is probably at least one – or two? – Steps too high. There would hardly have been an opponent against whom Stebe could have calculated chances in a best of five match. Accordingly, the match between Khachanov and Stebe also did not expect acceptable rates on the two-way market. Already for a sentence profit of the German odds of clearly over 2.00 are offered.
