Colored French speaking at the US Open 13 times, debuting in 2005-m to year. Since Monfils missed only two rounds in 2007 and 2012. Better of all, Gael played in 2016, one step from decisive match for the title. Don’t let the “Slenderman” in the final of the Serb Novak Djokovic, who was stronger in four sets 6-3, 6-2, 3-6, 6-2. Plus two quarter – finals in 2010 and 2014.

The Frenchman is in 2019 year very good indicators of it on hard, losing just four of their 26.
Here Gael confidently passed the first two rounds, having dealt with dry Ramos and Coelom. Then won the hardest 5-setevuyu victory over Denis Shapovalov 6-7, 7-6, 6-4, 6-7, 6-3.
33-year-old Spanish veteran – the main surprise in the men’s singles 1/8 finals. Pablo has never been a good game on hard, having won in the current season prior to the start of this tournament just two wins in seven games.
At the US Open Andujar stands for the eighth time, and previously never fought beyond the second round. And last visit in 2015-m to year, losing at the start of the Russian Gabashvili.
Immediately at the start of this season, the Spaniard was a pleasant surprise, beating in five sets Briton Kyle Edmund.

The history of this Spanish-French confrontation originates back in 2010-m to year and includes three matches, one at a time on different surfaces:
- the first time the guys met in the 1/8 finals of herbal Stuttgart, where Monfils won 3 heavy-setevuyu win 6-4, 5-7, 6-4. Besides, that was considered the clear favorite and had to deal with the relevant gruntovka Andhara much easier;

- finally, the meeting in 2014 in the semifinals of nice, in which the French again proved their superiority 7-5, 6-4.
The coefficients and forecast
Lamont – an obvious favorite of the match according to bookmakers. The victory of the Frenchman we see a factor of 1.21, for Andujar – 5.05. As for me, quotes are quite reasonable given the lichek between teams, games and manners of the coating. Even despite the fact that the Spaniard decently surprised here by the quality of tennis and confidence.
Think, Gael quickly found the keys to the style of Pablo and possess the initiative from the first games. I think that Monviso quite able to pass such a plan opponent in three sets, thus saving energy for the quarterfinals, where most likely it will expect the Russian Andrey Rublev.
