On February 24, Gael Monfils and Marton Fucsovics will be the last to appear on the courts in Dubai. Monfils failed completely at the Australian Open, and for a long time complained of a wrist injury. However, he lost to a small home tournament, where he won the title and gained confidence. Then, on courage, the Frenchman still won in Rotterdam.

Fucsovics stands out for his hard work, because he spends a lot of time in training and tries to become the best. The only problem is that at the moment, Marton’s limit is top 100.
The representative of Hungary is somewhat reminiscent of Kukushkina, since both of them stand out with a diverse and stable game on the back line, but they sag in all other aspects. At the moment, in tennis, the pitch and the ability to hit the ball come to the forefront, but this is not Fucsovics game.
Fucsovics played excellently on the Australian Open, where he reached the 1/8 finals. But after that, Marton’s results got worse. In Rotterdam, he failed to overcome the first round, losing Roberto Bautista Agut (6-4, 6-7, 1-6). In Marseilles, the Hungarian suffered a similar fate. In the first match at that tournament, he was unable to oppose Alexander Bublik (4-6, 5-7).
In 2019, Fucsovics played in the quarter finals of these competitions. If he fails to protect rating points, he will lose his position in the world ranking.
Monfils is already 33 years old, but even at that age he is still able to progress, which has been excellently demonstrated recently. Gael returned to the top 10 and began to compete at a high level only thanks to a more serious attitude.
As the Frenchman himself says, now he devotes much more time to the training process and has become responsible (thanks to Svitolina).
Now the tennis player needs to start acting calmly on the court, leaving all the circus tricks out of official matches. In addition, Gael can do everything on the court, starting from serving, ending with playing in a sticky game.
Two weeks ago, Monfils won the competition in Rotterdam, so they allowed themselves to miss Marseille. In addition to winning the Netherlands, the Frenchman also took the title in Montpellier. In two weeks, Gael won almost all fights in two sets. Only Adrian Mannarino managed to create problems for the French veteran and take one batch from him.
In front of Dubai, Monfils had a rest for a week, but it was unlikely during this time that he had lost his playing form. In 2019, the Frenchman reached the semifinals here. Now he needs to protect his rating points.

Fucsovics vs Monfils Predictions
Monfils scored such a game form that fighting an Frenchman is now incredibly difficult. It is unlikely that Fuchovich will succeed. Hungary didn’t play his last matches in the best way, so we don’t believe in him.
- Our prediction: Gael Monfils (-3) Game Handicap.
