Edmund vs Vesely Betting Tips
Edmund is a young player from United Kingdom, with a powerful service and excellent mobility, which helped him climb inside top 100. He still has a long way to go to meet his full potential, but he is clearly on the right track and can start 2016 on the right foot.
One week ago, he won the first set at a tiebreak but was unable to hold onto his lead and was eventually eliminated from the competition. It was still a better performance than what he accomplished in Dubai, where he failed to qualify and was eliminated in straight sets. The key to his game is the first serve, as Edmund is known for producing plenty of aces on hard court.
Vesely is no stranger to powerful first serves and the player from the Czech Republic is going to use this weapon against his British counterpart. Unfortunately for him, he had a hard time winning his serve and in the last five games he played no tiebreak. Furthermore, Jiri won a single match in the last time, one of the worst starts over year so far.
He doesn't fair to well on international hard court, so he is probably happy to return to North America and play on a slightly different surface. Having said this, he also relies heavily on his first serve and this makes the confrontation with Kyle very interesting.
- Both players serve well but recently Vesely struggled to defend his and allowed many breaks.
- The two young players are at the opposite end of form, with the check losing 9 out of 10 recent matches.
Edmund vs Vesely Betting Prediction
Vesely is priced at even odds, but punters should side with the favorite today because Edmund is far more likely to emerge victorious. He's an all-around player and even if he doesn't makes the most of his first serve, he still has plenty of weapons in its arsenal to prevail. Both are young and lack the experience necessary to reach the advanced rounds of a tournament of this magnitude, but Kyle is well-positioned to win the first round. Betfair offers odds of 1.75 on this outcome which are excellent.
