Shapovalov +250

He's 5-2 this season on grass, won 2016 Junior Wimbledon

Edmund is 4-15 lifetime on grass

This line seems crazy to me

Hopefully he can redeem himself from his davis cup snafu of hitting the ump in the face when losing vs Edmund. Let's hope the change of surface gives him the upper hand this time.

I'd exercise caution on getting too heavy on this since Edmund is experienced with some fairly heavy hitters.  For instance it looks like he beat Gilles Simon on grass last year & Simon just slayed the giant, dr. Ivo today.

Short vid I found of Edmund discussing his experience getting to play the cream of the crop in the tennis world.

BOL in your venture & I'll be rooting for the The Kid.

Fantastic find on this play.  Of course I talked myself down from pounding it but still a very pleasant Monday treat.  Hopefully I didn't scare anyone away.  I was trying to jinx Edmund by saying to watch out for him lol. I wish I could've watched it.

As always, if you see something say something.
