Karen Khacahnov vs Ugo Humbert: Prediction and Betting Tips
Karen Khachanov looking to keep his winning form
The 12th seeded Karen Khachanov is one step away from a battle to win an Olympic medal in his maiden games in Tokyo. The Russian playing for the Russian Olympic Committee team (ROC) is playing in his second consecutive quarter-final having lost in Wimbledon to Denis Shapovalov after a hard-fought battle.
It wasn’t easy for the Khachanov in the Olympics. He had to fight his way back in the opening round from a set down to beat Nishioka. In the previous round, Khachanov had to go through another three-setter to overcome Argentine Diego Schwartzman. The Russian had to save eight breakpoints in the match and broke Schwartzmann’s serve five times himself.

The Frenchman lost the first set but fought his way back in the second winning it in a tiebreaker. Humbert went on to completely dominate the third set breaking the Greek’s serve twice after saving five breakpoints against his.

Karen Khacahnov vs Ugo Humbert Prediction
This will be the most equally contested match in the quarter-finals of the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. Even the bookies can’t decide who will be the winner. Vbet is offering odds of 1.95 for a win for both players.
Khachanov has been very solid and looks determined to do well in this Olympics. The Russian lost his serve just four times in three matches.
The same goes for Humbert. The 14th seed showed great character in his last match against Tsitsipas and if he can maintain that kind of form, he will be a very dangerous opponent.
We will follow the total games market and predict that there will be over 21 games in this match.
