Quarter-finals of an ATP 500 tournament at Hamburg, Germany (clay). This should be the closest match of the day given how well both of them were performing recently. To have more insights on this ATP Jeremy Chardy vs Nicolas Basilashvili match, please check out the preview below.
32 years old, currently ranked 77th overall, Frenchman has slowly become one of the “hottest” players these two weeks. He’s managed to win 4 out of 5 matches played while being stated as an underdog by bookmakers in most of them. He’s reached the 3rd round at Bastad, Sweden, where he’s won against P. Carreno-Busta (59), Ch. Garin (37) and only lost to N. Jarry (38) at quarter-finals. Here at Hamburg, he’s already defeated his 2 fellow Frenchman: B. Paire (28) in 3 sets, and R. Gasquet (65) in straight sets. Chardy has definitely got an experience playing on the clay, but the main he’s been lacking were consistency and motivation, it seemed like. Now, it looks like Chardy has fixed these issues and is looking really strong here at Hamburg.
27 years old, currently 16th ranked, Georgian is slowly recovering after a sluggish start of the season. He tends to perform at higher-ranked tournaments and often struggles with motivation at the lower ones. Anyway, here at Hamburg, he is coming back to the form he’s capable of showing and victories against H. Delien (87) in straight sets, J. Londero (56) in 3 sets, just proves the fact. This will definitely be the strongest competition at this tournament so far for the Georgian as Jeremy Chardy has a lot of high-level experience and is not an easy opponent to beat. Basilashvili often struggles with keeping his mind in the game and not losing the temper, but he must keep focused tomorrow in order to win the match and move forward.
