05:00, Jul 29 2021
Karen Khachanov vs Ugo Humbert prediction for Thursday’s Olympic Games quarter-final Tennis Men’s Singles showdown at Ariake Tennis Park in Tokyo. World number 25 Karen Khachanov meets the 28th ranked Ugo Humbert in the battle for a place in the last four of the Tokyo Olympic Games. Follow on for our free 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.

Khachanov Key Stats

  • Khachanov has played on average 31.8 games per match in Tokyo
  • The average number of times per match Khachanov’s serve was broken is 1.3
  • 78% is the average points won by Khachanov on his first serve

Ugo Humbert in an impressive form

The Frenchman playing in his first-ever Olympic games has had his best results of the season on grass courts. The 28th ranked in the world has won his only title of the year in Halle. On hard courts, Humbert has a record of 6-6 win/loss record with his best result being a semi-final appearance in Marseille where he lost to Herbert.

We saw the best of the 23-year-old Humbert in his round of 16 match against Tsitsipas who is one of the best players on tour now. 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.

Humbert Key Stats

  • The average games per match played by Humbert in Tokyo is 28
  • 40.3 is the number of winners hit by Humbert in the Olympic Games
  • The average number of times Humbert’s serve was broken is 1.3

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.
