Cuevas vs Vesely Betting Tip & Prediction

Pablo Cuevas is a great fighter, and I really like his game on a clay court, but on the grass court, Jiri Vesely shouldn’t have any problem to beat him. A surprising victory over Zverev could be a huge boost for Vesely, but players often suffer a hangover following big wins.
