Kremlin Cup 2021: Laslo Djere vs. Gilles Simon Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2021 Kremlin Cup as Laslo Djere takes on Gilles Simon in the Round of 32 on Tuesday, October 19th, 2021.

Will Laslo Djere move on? Will Gilles Simon pull off the upset? This will be an interesting one, where we have a tour veteran taking on a player who can play some great tennis at his best. Who will move on to the Round of 16 at the 2021 Kremlin Cup?

Laslo Djere has been in a bit of a struggle lately, but he has a great shot here to take out Gilles Simon and move on. Simon hasn’t been playing much at all, and when he has, it’s been down in the challenger tour, where he hasn’t been winning either. Djere, on the other hand, has only been playing main tour events, where granted, he hasn’t been performing well, but still good enough to be the clear favorite here. Simon plays sort of like RBA, but at this point in his career, his shots have little pop, and he just can’t sustain that playstyle with the young guys anymore. Djere will likely be able to walk all over him, simply focusing on putting the ball in and being aggressive on his returns, if he can do that, I expect him to easily move on to the Round of 16 at the 2021 Kremlin Cup.

Gilles Simon has not been playing at the level that he’d like to be playing at. Slumming it in the challenger tour for a while, while his opponent in Laslo Djere is plenty fresh with many main draw matches. It’ll be a really tough one for Simon, as he will have to look to play aggressive tennis, keeping the points short. If you went back in time and told him that 10 years ago, he would look at you in disgust, as this is the opposite of the way he plays. He loves to have long rallies, wearing down his opponent. Unfortunately for him, he can hardly sustain the level of play that he once was able to, it’ll be a tough one for him here as he fights for a spot in the next round here at the 2021 Kremlin Cup.

Laslo Djere and Gilles Simon have never met before, with this being their first career meeting. It’s not too diverse of a matchup, Djere is able to play with more topspin than Simon, but ultimately, they have pretty average playing styles, at least Djere does. Simon will have to change up his style if he wants a chance at the win, he definitely has a lot more experience. But he just can’t stay in the rallies for too long, and Djere will ultimately just be able to simply hit the ball harder, run faster, and have practically every advantage on the court you can think of. Let’s see if he can grab the win and show that he’s in good form to make a nice run here at the 2021 Kremlin Cup.
