Gael Monfils v Jannik Sinner Head to Head
The pair have never met before. This will be the first match between the 33 year old Frenchman, and Sinner, who is 15 years his junior.
Monfils, Chasing Ninth Career Title
Monfils won the 8th senior singles’ title of his career in Rotterdam in February, with all but one of those tournament victories coming on hard courts. Apart from that, in the early part of the season, he made the semi-finals in Sofia and Dubai, and the quarters in Indian Wells and Estoril.
After experiencing something of a mid-year slump, he bounced back with a run to the semi-finals in Montreal and then forced his way to the quarter finals of the US Open, eventually losing an epic battle with Matteo Berrettini on a fifth set tie break.
Subsequent to that he made the quarter finals in Zhuhai, but lost in the second round last week in Shanghai to Hubert Hurkacz of Poland..
Sinner, Record Breaker on the Challenger Tour
Sinner may only be 18, but he is already starting to make a name for himself in professional; tennis. Earlier this year he became the first player born in 2001 to reach the final of a Challenger event, going on to win the title in Bergamo, Italy.
He then won two ITF Futures titles, before he secured two more appearances in the final of Challenger tournaments, slipping to defeat in Ostrava, but triumphing once again in Lexington in August.
Still very inexperienced on the senior ATP tour, this is the fourth time this year he has made the second round of a tournament, having previously got to this stage in Budapest, Rome, and Umag. He has never yet been beyond the second round.
He earned his chance against Monfils by defeating the Polish wildcard Kamil Majchrzak in straight sets in their first round match on Tuesday.
Monfils v Sinner Predictions & Tips
Monfils is the overwhelming favourite to win this match at 1/3, whilst Sinner is priced at 7/1. In terms of experience this is a complete mismatch, because Monfils has 15 years on his opponent. Sinner has yet to beat a player ranked in the top 50, and this is a big leap in terms of the quality of opponent he normally faces. Monfils should win with ease.
Tip: Monfils to win in straight sets: 3/5 (888Sport)
