In the Korean Open round of 16, the world No.2, Casper Ruud will face the 111th ranked player in the world, Chilean Nicolas Jarry. In contrast to Ruud, this will be his fourth career title, but despite this, bookmakers are siding with the European.
After his success at the US Open, where the Norwegian made it to the finals but lost to Alcaraz, Casper has played two matches. In the Davis Cup, the Norwegian was stronger than Gunneswaran in two sets. And in the Laver Cup, Ruud played a match against the American Sock, which the Scandinavian won 2-1. Unlike Norrie, Casper Ruud has already secured a spot in the London Final tournament. The fact that the Norwegian played in London at the end of last week is a disadvantage for Ruud, and it's not at all certain that Casper had time to adjust to the new time zone. Jarry, in turn, should have no problem.
Nicolas Jarry played two Davis Cup games for his team last week, beating Peru's Alvarez but coming up short against Varillas. In South Korea, Harry won three matches, two in qualifying and one in the main draw. In Seoul, Harry did not lose a single set, knocking out Ito, Kovacevic, and Peniston. The match against the Briton lasted an hour and 40 minutes, Harry won it 2-0 (6-3, 7-6). The Chilean player served 7 times on the court, won 90% of points on the first serve, 31% on the second serve, 28%/38% on the receiving end, 7-2 winners/unforced errors.
Expert Betting Tips
In contrast to Ruud, Harry has had full court experience in Seoul. The Chilean has not lost a single set so far, and the American has never played a game against a top player. We believe that the Norwegian is likely to beat Harry. It is difficult to compare the guys in terms of class and status. But it will be hard for the Norwegian to win in three sets. Here are the betting options for the game:
H2 (+3.5) for 2.24 at 1xbet;
Correct score 2-1 for 3.75 at Betway & 4.33 at Bet365.
