The best competitions were in Gstaad (Switzerland) and in St. Petersburg (Russia), the Portuguese played in semifinal matches, it is also worth noting the exit to the fourth round of Wimbledon. The current season for Joan started poorly, the tennis player lost all 3 matches in which he participated, a series of defeats lasts from the end of last year and has already 6 matches. The last game was held in Montpellier, in the first round Sousa lost to the Frenchman Gregoire Barrere (2 / 6.6 / 7). The athlete takes 68th place in the APR rating.

Souza began the new season at the tournament in Auckland – there he lost to Vasek Pospisil in the first round (4-6, 2-6). Then the Portuguese lost to Federico Delbonis (3-6, 4-6, 6-7) in the opening match for the Australian Open.

Betting Tips Statistics
- In personal meetings, Monfils leads with a score of 3-1.
- Monfils won four victories in the last five games, Souza won none.
Sousa did not win a single victory in the new season and probably burns with a desire to correct the current state of affairs. Rival, of course, is not the easiest, but last week Monfils completely won the tournament in Montpellier, where he managed to reach the finals. It is possible that Gael has accumulated fatigue, which Souza can take advantage of.
Our prediction is Sousa’s victory.
