Monfis used to win this competition a long time ago. Really, it was back in 2014. That’s when Gael beat Richard Gasquet in the finals. After that, the French couldn’t repeat their success. In 2015, Monfis reached the semi-finals here. That was the end of all his success in Montpellier. The last time he came here was in 2016, but he couldn’t overcome the barrier of the first round.
This season, a Parisian passed all his rivals here quite confidently. Gael had some difficulties in confronting Mannarino. He defeated Adrian 4-6, 6-1, 6-4. But games with Norbert Gombos and Filip Krajinovic were much more confident. He beat Slovak 6-4, 6-3, and the Serb 7-6, 6-4.
Pospisil only played once in Montpellier. In 2012, he couldn’t make the first round here. After that, the Canadian never came here. Despite such unpleasant memories, Vasek performed quite confidently at this tournament. In the first three rounds, he did not give his rivals a single set.
First the representative of Canada defeated Aljaz Bedene (6-3, 6-4), and then sent Denis Shapovalov (6-3, 6-2) home. In the quarter-finals, Pospisil forced Richard Gasquet (6-1, 1-0) to give up his fight, while in the semi-finals he broke David Goffin’s resistance (6-3, 1-6, 7-5).
In the world ranking Vasek is still in 132nd place, but after such a performance he will significantly improve his position.
Betting Tips Statistics
- In face-to-face games, the 5-0 score is in favor of Monfis
- Pospisil has never won a set against a Frenchman before
- At this tournament, Montfis has completed 27 ices, Pospisil – 34
Looks like Pospisil caught the courage, so Monfils is unlikely to be easy. Gael is no stronger than Goffin now, and the Canadian passed the last one quite confidently. Despite the support of the fans, we believe that there will not be an easy walk for the owner of the courts.
However, we predict that the experience of the Frenchman will play a crucial role in this confrontation.
Our prediction is the victory of Gael Monfis.
