Kevin Anderson News & Form

The reigning vice-champ missed the whole spring, recovering from an elbow injury. The World No. 8 returned to action at the Queen’s Club where he lost to Gilles Simon in three sets in the second round. This season, Anderson has a 9-3 record, winning one title in Pune on a hard court.

Last year, Anderson made it to the championship match at Wimbledon after five-set victories over Roger Federer in the quarterfinal and John Isner in the semifinal. However, Anderson lost all his energy in the epic fifth set against Isner (26-24), so he couldn’t cope with Novak Djokovic in the final, losing in straight sets. Anderson has a 37-26 record on the grass court in his career, and he’s never won a title on the fastest surface.

Pierre-Hugues Herbert News & Form

The 28-year old Frenchman is coming to London as the World No. 38, and he’s enjoying a solid season, winning 21 of his 36 matches in 2019. Herbert lost the championship match in Montpellier back in February, and the Frenchman is still searching for his first ATP title.

Anderson vs Herbert Betting Tip

I think Pierre-Hugues Herbert stand a chance here, so I expect to see a thrilling match that would go in the over on total games. Both players possess a great serve, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they play a few tiebreaks. Hereof, I suggest you take the over 41.5 games at 4/5 with Betway.

Kevin Anderson is far away from his best form and could easily struggle against Herbert, especially if the Frenchman serves at the high level. I would avoid the side bet and stick with the total games, but if you are looking for the first-round upset, go with Herbert at 7/4 with Bet365 or William Hill.
