David Goffin and Pierre-Hugues Herbert met last month at Australian Open. On February 7, tennis players will play in a tournament in Montpellier.
Goffin returned to the top 10 and the tennis player should learn a lesson from recent defeats that you need not to protect points, but to block them in other tournaments. Recently, Herbert again took up the old, as he is extremely unstable in the tour, with constant changes. Can David reach the semifinals?

Herbert is still confidently holding on to a home tournament in Montpellier. In two starting fights, the Frenchman did not lose a single set, given that in one of them he went underdog.
Pierre is gradually adding in singles and it seems that by the end of the year he will definitely win some tournament in the ATP series. At this tournament, so far, he goes without significant errors, without losing a single set. In the first round, the Frenchman still had a shiver in his hands when he did not file for the match with a score of 4-5. But in the game with the young Canadian, Herbert acted to the maximum of his capabilities, without giving Oga any opportunities in his serve.
In the first round of the competition in Montpellier, Herbert defeated Stakhovsky (6-2, 7-5), and in the second round he defeated the representative of Canada Auger-Aliassime (7-6. 7-5).
Goffin on the eve held only the first match at the tournament in Montpellier. The Belgian began his journey in these competitions from the second round, where he spent an extremely intense starting match against Alexander Bublik (6-3, 7-6).
Goffin played 5 set points in the 2nd installment to finish the match 2-0 in his favor. In general, David did not show the tennis that is expected of him, but it feels like he played half his capabilities.
Last year, Goffin took off in the second round of the competition at the Montpellier tournament. So he has already improved his last year’s result and has every chance this year to compete for the finals – the Belgian tournament bracket is not the most difficult.
Betting Tips Statistics
- Tennis players had four matches between themselves. Total dominance on the side of Goffin, who won all the meetings.
- It should be noted that Goffin and Herbert have already played Australian Open this season.
This will be the second full-time meeting of tennis players this year. Last month they met at Australian Open – then Goffin won in five games. Let me remind you that David has a 4-fold advantage in the history of personal meetings, and one of those matches took place in January at the AO, when he won the Frenchman in 5 sets. However, then something went wrong and he lost in the next two sets, and therefore the fate of the match was decided in the fifth installment.
The Belgian is very consistent from the back line, and is a pure attacking player who knows how to turn defense into an attack. By the way, Bublik, like Herbert, has a powerful supply in reserve, but the Belgian still turned over the opponent’s strong qualities for his own good, while not disclosing his potential by 100%. Given Goffin’s level of play, the fact that he can add and how he succeeded in the last match, I expect him to be stronger.
We hope that in the upcoming match Goffin will not lose concentration during the game with Herbert and will be able to close the meeting in two games.
Our prediction is Goffin’s victory
