Dominic Thiem v Gael Monfils Head to Head
Thiem and Monfils have played four times before and the Austrian won all those meetings. Three more scheduled matches between the pair resulted in walkovers with the most recent being at Indian Wells where Thiem benefited from Monfils’ withdrawal due to injury en route to his maiden Masters 1000 title.
Thiem Aiming For His Fourth Straight Quarterfinal
Since making his debut at Roland Garros in 2014, Dominic Thiem has enjoyed some notable success in terms of results on the partisan dirt. He has reached at least the semifinals since 2016, with his best achievement being last year’s runner-up finish to Rafael Nadal.
The Austrian, 25, is currently the only active men’s player under 28 to have reached a Grand Slam. That is a further illustration of how dominant the three immortals in men’s tennis have been for the best part of 15 years.
Thiem will need to get his head right for this mouthwatering encounter against Gael Monfils following yesterday’s contentious presser. The 25-year-old was told to exit from the room in the middle of his press conference in order to accommodate Serena Williams who reportedly could not wait. The Austrian was left raging and later commented that Williams had a bad personality.
Monfils Made Light Work Of His Early Rounds
In comparison to Dominic Thiem’s draw, Monfils has had a less treacherous route to the fourth round. After beating Taro Daniel in the opener – the 32-year-old knocked out two of his countrymen (Mannarino and Hoang) – all in straight sets.
France’s No.1 is aiming to reach the quarterfinal at the French Open for the first time since his remarkable run to the semifinals 11 years ago as a 21-year-old with a bright future.
2019 has been one of his best years on tour. He has quietly enjoyed a fantastic season despite some niggling injuries, compiling a 21-6 win-loss record and capturing one of his biggest titles of his career in Rotterdam in February.
Will he snap his losing streak and post his first win on the board against the powerful Austrian?
Thiem v Monfils Predictions & Tips
Both these two players are not too dissimilar in their playing style, with their topspin forehands and court awareness. Thiem has dominated this match-up and it looks like Monfils has no remedy to neutralize the Austrian’s raw power from the baseline. Last year’s runner-up has looked shaky at times but in fairness, he has had a difficult slate of opponents and he should be favorite to win here. This should be a classic.
Tip: Thiem to win in five sets: 19/4 (888Sport)
