Betting tips: Jianu vs. Forejtek and Janvier vs. Simon
- Filip Cristian Jianu vs. Jonas Forejtek (Prague challenger)
- Maxime Janvier vs. Gilles Simon (San Marino challenger)
Tennis – Prague challenger R16: Filip Cristian Jianu vs. Jonas Forejtek
A clash between two very young players tomorrow in Prague (clay). Filip Cristian Jianu is at 19 years old ranked just outside the top 300. The player from Romania is on the rise, playing his 13th challenger event since the start of the season. His best results were reaching the quarterfinals in Oeiras and Tallahassee, both played on clay, his favorite surface (31 wins – 18 losses in 2021).
Jonas Forejtek from Czech Republic just turned 20 years old and is ranked #311 in the world. Forejtek made a name of himself last season in Sofia where he pulled a stunning upset over Marin Cilic. This season, he also reached two quarterfinals in challenger events (Biella and Lille) but both tournaments were played on indoor hard court. Forejtek's record on clay since the start of the season is disappointing (5 wins – 13 losses).
We like the fact that the betting market is favoring Forejtek. We believe some betting value can be found on Jianu. The player from Romania played a lot on clay this year and with good results.
Prediction: there is no head-to-head between the two players on the pro tour. We back Jianu to win (Match odds).
Tennis – San Marino challenger R16: Maxime Janvier vs. Gilles Simon
Maxime Janvier will turn 25 years old in two months. The player from France is currently ranked #225 in the world (best career ranking: #170). This season, he reached the semifinals of Lille challenger but failed to deliver in most of the other events he entered. San Marino being held on clay, it is relevant to mention Janvier won only 7 matches this year on this surface (12 losses).
Gilles Simon had an even more horrific year on clay so far (2 wins – 7 losses), and his season overall has been a nightmare for the Frenchman with only 3 matches won out of 18 played. It looks like the former top 10 player is near retirement, and unsurprisingly he just left the top 100 for the first time since 2006.
If we have a closer look at Simon's season, it is obvious he has faced much better competition than Janvier has. On clay, Simon lost matches to Lorenzo Sonego, Pablo Andujar, Pierre-Hugues Herbert, Marton Fucsovics. The former top player is due for a bounce somehow, and it could be this week in San Marino. Simon's poor season gets him quite high odds for tomorrow's encounter, and this could be a good betting opportunity.
Prediction: based on pedigree and experience, we predict: Simon to win (Match odds).
