Starting at 18:30, we have the 2nd semifinal at the Sao Paulo tournament, between Nicolas Jarry – Horacio Zeballos.
Nicolas Jarry is 73rd ATP. He is a right-handed player who hits backhand with both hands. It has 198 cm and a very powerful service,and when the service comes in, it has a very high chance of winning the point. In 2018 he has some very important victories against some players much better than him. At the Quito tournament came in the semifinals after winning against Facundo Bagnis (6-7 6-2 7-6) and Stefano Travaglia (4-6 7-6 6-3). In the match with Travaglia he lost only 8 points on the first service, with 84% of the winning balls. At the Rio de Janeiro arrived in the semifinals. He won with Garcia Lopez, Albert Ramos and Pablo Cuevas with 2-0 all the matches. At Sao Paulo tournament, Jarry won in the first two matches against Dusan Lajovic and Guido Pella, score 2-1 with both. Yesterday he won against Albert Ramos Vinolas (6-7 6-4 7-6). He served very well and today he is favorite. Nicolas Jarry showed a very good game and I think he has a pretty good chance today. He is a very serious player who will definitely get to the top 50 ATP.
Horacio Zeballos currently occupies 69 ATP positions. He is a good player and manages to put many problems at opponents on clay. At this tournament in Sao Paulo, Zeballos won in the first rounds with Bellucci, Monfils, Dutra Silva and in all matches the score was 2-1. In the match with Dutra Silva, Zeballos had only 68% of the winning balls on the first service. He has a much weaker service than Jarry and maybe here’s the difference tonight.
