- The coefficients and forecast
33-year-old Frenchman playing for the fourth time in the last eight of the tournament. Twice in 2010 and 2014 Gael have been eliminated at this stage once in 2016 through to the semifinals, losing to Serb Novak to Djokovic. Last season Monfils arrived at the last major of the year with minor damage that are not allowed to show my best tennis. As a result, the Frenchman concluded the second round, failing to finish the match against kei nishikori, starring at the score of 2-6, 4-5.
To start the current draw, Lamont takes 13-th place in world ranking, showing in the 2019 year is unusually stable tennis on the hard courts, with the statistics of wins and losses 23-4.
Preparation for this tournament, Gael spent on “Masters” in Montreal and Cincinnati. On the first competition reached the semi-finals, however, did not come out on it, citing poor health. On the second lost at the start of the American Tiago.
This is the toughest Monfis was given the match of the third round against canadian Denis Shapovalov, where a victory had to run away almost four hours and five sets.
Other rivals French roll dry.
23-year-old Italian chic shows progress in this tournament. Matteo made his debut here in 2017, losing in the second round of qualification on three tipakh Stephanos Zizipus 7-6, 6-7, 6-7. Last season began immediately with the main grid, but unexpectedly easily lost at the start in three sets American Denis Kudle.
Berrettini holds a cool season, showing good results on all surfaces. The assets of the Italian hard-court title in Phoenix compactor in Budapest and herbal in Stuttgart.
Here Matteo is not easy passed all four rounds. At the start figured out in four sets with Richard Gasquet.
Then he removed from his path in the same format of the Australians Thompson and Papyrina. Finally, unexpectedly badly dealt with by Andrei Rublev.
The coefficients and forecast
Gael Monfils is the favorite in this quarterfinal confrontation, according to bookmakers. At victory we see at the moment, the ratio is 1.54, on Berrettini – 2.64. As for me, quotes are absolutely justified taking into account the current rating of the opponents, the experience of such matches, games and manners of the results in the current season. Both are now in good shape, and the match promises to be very interesting and entertaining.
I think Gael will win in this meeting, and not bring the matter to the fifth set. So I suggest to stop the choice in terms of betting on the option minus the odds on the Frenchman in sets with -1.5. Without a doubt, Gael is a more stable player, who can very quickly identify the weaknesses in their game and instantly use them.
Of course, the factor of the first fight between the guys adds to the complexity in the analysis. But, nevertheless, I think the proposed outcome is very real.
