God, how gorgeous has been the beginning of the Wimbledon so far, there have been some unbelievable battles already and my favorite on Day 1 was the battle between Alcaraz and Lennard-Struff. And as we move into the Second-Round, Casper Ruud will take on Ugo Humbert on 29 June. Casper won on three sets against Albert Ramos-Vinolas in an incredible battle whereas Ugo Humbert defeated Tomas Martin Etcheverry in five sets to advance. Can Ugo get it done against Casper with odds stacked against him?

Casper entered the tournament as the third-seeded player and is one of the favorites to win it all. He did a great job in the rain-affected game versus Albert Ramos-Vinolas. Casper faced stiff resistance in the first set which was decided by a tiebreaker, Ruud won the first tie-breaker 7:1. In the second set, things didn’t change at all and at one point, Albert even took a lead in the tiebreaker, but Ruud made a comeback to win the tiebreaker 11:9. In the third set, Casper fended off Albert completely and won 6:2.

Ruud nailed 14 Aces in the previous game, which is not a surprise considering it was a three-set game. Casper had a 72% on first serve. His win% on the first serve was 76. His win% on the second serve was 59. He was tied for service points with 75 but then he had a 54:33 advantage in terms of receiving points. Ruud committed just three double-faults compared to seven by Albert.

Ugo had a five-set affair versus Tomas Martin Etcheverry. Humbert took the first set comfortably with a score of 6:3. Then in the second set, Tomas made a comeback and Ugo lost 3:6. Things got trickier for Ugo as Tomas won the third set and Humbert lost 4:6. With no set to concede any more, Ugo took control of things and won the fourth set 6:3, and ultimately finished the deal in the last set 6:4. It was an interesting battle indeed but Ugo kept his calm.

Ugo had a tremendous 86% win on the first serve and managed 12 Aces, which is not much considering it was a five-set game. Ugo committed just three double-faults compared to six by Tomas, which also made a huge difference. Humbert won 57 receiving points compared to 46 by Tomas. Ugo won 21 service games compared to 19 by Tomas, managing 100 serve points.

Context

While Casper is a high-ranked player, history shows Humber can get it done in tough scenarios. Ugo has an impressive 52.38% win record against the players who have made it to top-ten rankings and that tells you something. Humbert and Ruud have met three times in total, and Humbert has beaten him twice in that period. Their last meeting came on Hard Indoor Court during ATP 1000 Masters Paris where Humbert won in three sets(three-set total affair). Can Casper equal the head-to-head here?

Win/Loss Betting

As per bookmakers at bet365, Casper has more favorable odds here of 1.66 whereas Humbert enters with the odds of 2.20. To be honest, this is not an easy one to predict at all.

Total Sets/ Total Games

There is no doubt that this is the type of battle you’d project to go into five sets. I believe this will go into five sets which have the odds of 3.75 as per bet365. Since I believe that this is going to be a long game, I lean towards the number of Games going Over 38.5 which has the odds of 1.83.
