After causing quite a few upsets in 2021 already, Aslan Karatsev is a black horse at the Wimbledon Championships 2021 as well. He played the Queen’s Club Championships before the Grand Slam but didn’t enjoy much success there as he lost to Cameron Norrie in the second round of the tournament.

His opponent, Jeremy Chardy, too hasn’t performed well on grass this season. The Frenchman suffered a defeat in the very first round of the Queen’s Club Championships at the hands of Alexander Bublik.

Thus, both the players haven’t managed to impress the fans on grass this season. However, all the eyes will be on Karatsev as he after proving himself on the hard courts and clay, he is yet accomplish a title on grass. He can do the same this year but for that he will have to find a way to get past the stunning forehand of Chardy.

While experts will go by Karatsev because of his current form, Chardy can astonish everyone and beat the Russian. Even though Karatsev is the favorite, the match can go either ways.

If Chardy dominates the match in the initial phase, it’ll be very hard for Karatsev to comeback because of his rock-solid defense. However, it Karatsev breaks early and gains some momentum, it is only a matter of time before he finishes the match.

Final Prediction: Aslam Karatsev to win in four sets
