Dzumhur 2.98, Chung 1.49
Dzumhur won their only previous meeting. That was in March this year in Miami. He won on a hrd court in a third set tie break.
Chung has better overall results this year but recent form favours Dzumhur. Results on hard courts are very similar but again recent results favour Dzumhur.
Dzumhur reached the final of a Challenger on clay last week. He seemed to tire for the final but has bounce back well this week. Only Gilles Simon managed to take a set from him.
Chung beat in form Rublev in the first round. He lost the opening set but Rublev won just 2 more game sin the second and third sets. Maybe Rublev wanted to rest for next week and wasn’t interested in this tournament. In his next match Chung took the opening set from benneteau who then retired early in the second set.
Value on Dzumhur to take at least a set. Lay Chung below 1.35 and remove liability if he then gets broken.
Update: Fairly comfortable win for Dzumhur. He won 6-4, 6-2.
