Jason Kubler vs Ugo Humbert – Match Predictions

Given the odds, this will be an interesting match even though Humbert, relatively easily, defeated Kubler just weeks ago on grass.

Ugo Humbert to win

Both players have reached the round of 16 in the previous Wimbledon appearances, meaning that they both play well on grass. However, Humbert defeated Kubler very easy just weeks ago and it is pretty unlikely, Kubler will be able to offer anything more than that. Humbert has a great first serve that is ideal for this surface and Kubler will not find a way to respond.

Under 40.5 games

The total game margin is set pretty high for this match, Knowing that Kubler won only 6 games in two sets in their recent match, Humbert is expected to take care of business pretty quickly this time as well which will lead to a match with under 40.5 games.
