Kenny De Schepper v Pierre-Hugues Herbert

Tennis - ATP Montpellier - 07 Feb 10:00

Not really sure why De Schepper (#145) is the favourite here. Both are serve orientated players but Herbert's willingness to come to the net gives him an added dimension to his game.

They've met 3 times before and on each occasion Herbert (#77) came out on top.

He won their 2 indoor hard court meetings in straight sets. The most recent came just last October and he was the 1.7 favourite.

He's already made a Quarter Final on the ATP Tour this year in Pune so it's not like he's been in poor form.

He was in Davis Cup action at the weekend partnering Mahut to a win in the doubles which will have been good practice for this tournament with lots of net play.

When you compare the stats of these two players at this level it suggests Herbert is the most likely winner.

At ATP Tour main draw level Herbert has won 38% of his matches, de Schepper just 31%.

On indoor hard court Herbert has won 39% of matches, de Schepper 34%.

De Schepper has come through qualifying but only just beat Donati in his opener and the last time we saw him in action he lost 6-2 6-3 to Gombos (#134) in the 1st Round of a Challenger event.

On indoor hard courts Herbert has a career ROI of 13.9%. de Schepper is -3.8% and that just backs up to me that we are backing the right player here at generous odds. Has to be double stakes. I had him as 1.66 favourite.
