Chardy vs Barrios: easy win for the Frenchman?
On July 24, Jeremy Chardy goes against Marcelo Tomas Barrios in the first round of the Olympic Games in Tokyo. Will the French tennis player get an easy victory? Our answer is in the prediction below.
Chardy has won just one out of his last six matches. This is not the best result for a French tennis player, but nevertheless, we believe that at the Tokyo Olympics, Jeremy will be able to perform very productively. He is pretty much the only hope for the France Olympic team. The rest of the French tennis players who will play in Tokyo are out of form. Chardy has won nine matches on hard this season and lost six.
Barrios is a clay court specialist and he has played most of the matches this season on that surface. But the Olympics tournament is held on hard, and it is unlikely that the Chilean tennis player can show outstanding results. Barrios feels uncomfortable on fast courts. But still, he managed to win three out of six matches on hard this season.
Chardy has played 3 tie-breaks in the last 5 matches.
More than 9.5 games were played in the first set in 4 of Barrios's last 5 matches.
Chardy is not getting younger, but he still shows solid tennis. He has a huge serve, besides, Jeremy plays confidently on the base line. We believe that Chardy will be able to quickly cope with Barrios, who is more used to playing on clay.
Our prediction - Chardy to win with a handicap (-3)
Prediction: Handicap (-3) to Chardy

This will be the last Olympics in Chardy's career. Surely the French tennis player intends to give his best performance in Tokyo. To do this, he needs to win his first matches as quickly as possible. We expect Jeremy to win in two sets.
Second prediction - total under 23 games.
