Ben Shelton vs Laslo Djere – Match Predictions

Over 39.5 Games

In his match against Cressy, Djere spent 221 minutes on the court. All four sets had a tiebreaker, with the American taking the first but coming up second in the following three sets. A total of 52 games were played in this period. Shelton too was involved in a marathon against Daniel with 57 games played in 188 minutes. With both players not giving an inch in the last round and going the distance in their previous encounter back in May, a long-drawn battle seems to be on the cards. With both players needing more than 50 games to conclude their previous meetings, Over 39.5 Games provides value.

3-1 to Ben Shelton

Djere triumphed in their last meeting in the Cagliari Challenger and would like a similar outcome at the All England Club. However, it was Shelton who drew first blood by taking the lead. It seems like an unlikely scenario that Shelton will give up the lead this time around as his weapons are more dangerous on grass. The American sent 22 aces past Daniel, managing 20 more than his output against Djere in Italy. It bailed him out in the duel and will put the Serbian on the back foot. Shelton’s inexperience may count against him and he will struggle to put away Djere. A deciding set will be needed and this is why we are backing a 3-1 conclusion in favour of Shelton.

Ben Shelton vs Laslo Djere Preview

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in the Wimbledon.

Ben Shelton

It has been a worrisome couple of months for Ben Shelton on the ATP tour. Unable to play on his preferred hard court surface, Shelton has lost six of his last eight matches. In addition to his victory over lucky loser Daniel, he defeated JJ Wolf in the opening round of the Queen’s Club Championships. It will be interesting how he comes out against Djere and whether his big serves can penetrate the Serbian ace’s defence. If he can improve on his efficiency in converting break points a long run at the Championships is likely.

Laslo Djere

The Serbian ace finished the clay court swing on a sour note, a first-round ousting at the hands of Andriy Rublev. Earlier, he had found Casper Ruud in round four of the Rome Masters, while also making it to the finals of the Cagliari Challenger. He defeated Shelton there but will have to be wary of the American as his serve is a much bigger weapon on the green surface. On grass, he has gone past the first round at both Hertogenbosch and Halle but that was the extent of his adventures.

Ben Shelton vs Laslo Djere Head to Head

Shelton and Djere are meeting for the second time in 2023. They locked horns in the Cagliari Challenger, where the Serbian ace triumphed in three sets.
