Pierre Hugues Herbert and Norbert Gombos meet in the last act of the Challenger tournament in Orleans, France. The game will take place Sunday at 17:00.
Gombos makes a very good tournament at Orleans, where almost all of Radu Albot, Hugo Nys, Dustin Brown and Andrey Rublev, conceding a single set (at the match with Nys). It came to this tournament after the Challenger semifinals in Izmir, where he was defeated by Cem Ilkel. The 26-year-old Norbert managed his best result of the season in 2015 when he won his only two tilturi in Prague Challenger sites (clay) and Cherbourg (computer room).
Herbert came to Orleans after eliminating the heights of 8-finals in Metz. There was one who had defeated to win the competition, the Frenchman Lucas Pouille, 2-1 in sets. At this tournament, Pierre almost all of Alexandre Sidorenko (2-0), Tommy Robredo (2-1), Ruben Bemelmans (2-0) and Daniel Brands (2-0). Known more for performance in the doubles, Pierre has won a Challenger title in singles this season, at Bergamo on a surface similar to that of Orleans (computer room).
We expect to sustain their French audience favorite in this final, which deserves a Pierre. Gombos is an aggressive player, so the bottom line of the land, and within it, while Herbert relies heavily on its service, which is remarkable. We count on a successful French player but a first set and won it with a score of at least 6-4.
Win Herbert @ 1.40;
Herbert & first set over 9.5 games @ 2.43;
