On Wednesday, July 29, 2020, at 16.00, the match of the Liberec Open between the Czechs Jiri Lehecka (612 ATP) and Michael Vrbensky (402 ATP) is scheduled. The recommended prediction goes in the direction of the lower ranked tennis player, but in a superior sports form.
Jiri Lehecka: Team form, news and statistics
Jiri (18 years old) is one of the most talented young players in his country and has already made his debut in the Davis Cup team of the Czech Republic.
He lost last year against the Dutchman Robin Haase, but since then he has grown a lot both physically and as a mature in field expression.
Since June 11, 2020, he has lost only 2 matches, each time in the decisive set, against some more experienced and better ranked rivals – the Slovak Alex Molcan and the compatriot Jonas Forejtek.
He defeated important names in the region such as Satral, Klein or Pavlasek, and against athletes without ranking he always won without the right to appeal.
Michael Vrbensky: Team form, news and statistics
Michael (20 years old) is a player 1.80 meters tall and 65 kilograms, very close to the best ranking in his career (395th place ATP).
Unfortunately for him, the break caused by the appearance of the pandemic had negative effects, the level of play constantly decreased.
Between February and March, Vrbensky played a final and a semifinal of the Futures slag tournament.
He won the President’s Cup after defeating Vesely, Lehecka and Kolar in May, and then followed the decline.
At the last appearance, he was surprisingly defeated by Pavel Nejedly (464 ATP), with the score of 4-6 4-6 on July 24, after starting as the big favorite in the bookmakers’ vision, with a odds of 1.15 to the soloist.

Tennis Prediction of the Day Jiri Lehecka vs Michael Vrbensky
I bet on a new success from Jiri Lehecka in front of Michael Vrbensky.
Even though he is 2 years younger, the player from Mlada Boleslav is going through a splendid period, with 8 victories from the last 9 post-lockdown appearances.
On the other hand, Vrbensky does not seem to be found, making a lot of mistakes in the last games.
The outsider lost 8 of the previous 10 unofficial matches played.
Bet Tips: Lehecka win
